Located northwest of Madhi Masjid, the Jain Mandir Dada Bari of Mehrauli can be reached by taking the main Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road and further by taking a turn after Nehru Samaj Sewa Kendra and Ashok Mission. Jain Mandir Dada Bari is a comparatively very modern marble temple and is beautifully decorated and profusely carved. The temple is popular for housing the samadhi of Guru Jinchanda Suruswarji Maharaj within its premises, which is said to be around 800 years ago.

Unlike the other modern temples of the capital, the interior of this temple too is aesthetically very pleasing and graceful. Decorated with sacred religious texts and shibboleths all over the verandah, the whole temple complex is very clean and quite well maintained.

Visitors are requested to remove their shoes before stepping onto the main verandah of the temple.
