3 Places In Vahelna You Must Visit

I visited The Shri Digambar Jain Mandir Atishay Kshetra in Vahelna in 2014. Since I live in Muzaffarnagar, I felt obliged to share a tourist destination of my hometown with you.

Vahelna is a small village of Muzaffarnagar which is very well connected to the highway. This place is less known so you’ll find less crowd except on Sundays.

Vahelna Jain Mandir

This is the main attraction of Vahelna. In the campus, you’ll find a beautiful statue of Lord Parshavnath inside the temple. Also, you’ll find a 31 feet tall statue of him out there in the open. Many paintings and sculptures are made on the walls and around depicting the scriptural tales.

Here you can go for a small boat ride in a small boat with your family. If not, you can sit on the beautiful benches and enjoy the scenery.

Though you might not find it as glamorous as the jain temple, it’s still beautiful. A school is also opened nearby.

Ruins Of A Castle

Here, you can also find the ruins of an old Castle. It’s not a tourist spot but you can stand in front and it will act as your photo point. Since Muzaffarnagar was the biggest settlement of Sayyiads in India, this structure was also made by them. I just came across a video of a youtuber and he showed the insides. However, I didn’t find it safe to travel inside.
