Jain temples are an integral part of Rajasthan’s religious culture. A number of Jain temples and each temple unique in itself- such diversity in temples depicting the same ideology is a rarity. Continuing the streak of Jain temples is the Jinalya Bhinmal Jain temple. It is located in Bhinmal town which is at a distance of 72 kms from Jalore main town. Bhinmal is of great historical significance as it is the birthplace of the great mathematician and astronomer Brahmagupta and Sanskrit poet Magha. Bhinmal was once the capital of the Gujjar kingdom, during the reign of Gujjar Pratihar.
The city constains some inscriptions in many of the temples which state that the twenty fourth Jain Tirthankara, Lord Mahavira Swami wandered about here.
