Unknown beautiful jaïn temple in Mumbai

You go on the balcony and you are suddenly face to face with a giant lotus. 


And naked boys (statues!).


One fine day, they send you to a hospital for a shooting.


You allow yourself to be curious and to leave the set. You go into the lotus. A LOT of statues! 


 Then you see other statues, which might indicate the entrance of a temple. And there, it is overwhelming. A huge room with incredible paintings on the roof. And giant lingams everywhere.


And giant statues. 


Outside, it is no less surprising: gigantic statues everywhere…


Here you go. You have "discovered" a jaîn temple, in a hospital. Nothing about the temple nor the hospital on the Internet, except for this: (the hospital was built in 1954, to treat TB. About the temple, it is just written that “the complex of the hospital also has temples of various religions for spiritual upliftment of the patients”).
