Bathery Jain Temple

 

One of the most important among the many Jain temples in Kerala, the Bathery Temple in Sulthan Bathery is believed to have been built during the 13th century. Its design is strongly influenced by the architectural style of the then reigning Vijayanagar Dynasty. Another unique feature is the rather checkered history of the temple which first served as a shrine, next as a centre of commercial trade and finally, as the ammunition store or battery of Tipu Sulthan’s army. The town, Sulthan Bathery, derives its name from that use.
