Jain Gori Temple is located in Nagarparkar, Thar near Pakistan-India border. It is said to have been built in the 16th century by a rich Hindu and dedicated after the 23rd Jain prophet, Lord Parashwanath.
There is a village of Gori near the temple where the Jain followers used to live before partition. Over the period of time, the temple’s condition has deteriorated because of lack of maintenance. Still, the White Temple continues to attract tourists who usually flock to the place during the rainy season.
