What visitors say about Jain Temple

The Jain Tempel in Fort Cochin is a facinating place to visit because not only will someone guide you and explain about the tempel, there is also a pidgeon show several times a day. The pidgeons who usually rest on the roofs of the tempel buildings will circle around the area and at the end you can feed them. If you are scared of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, don't go.
