Overview of the Day
Please join us on a special visit to the Jain Center of Southern California. The JCSC, located in Buena Park, California, is a non-profit religious organization that pursues a goal of practicing, promoting and preserving the Jain religion. Established on September 15, 1979, by a group of Jain families living in and around the Los Angeles area, it has since transformed into one of the largest Jain centers in the US. The exterior design of the center is inspired and reminiscent of ancient Jain temples of Delwada, Ranakpur and Paliana Tirths. Carved Jesalmer yellow limestone was designed and produced in India for the exterior of the building, and the interior uses natural stone including white marble and colorful granite. The visit will include a tour, observation of prayers, Q & A, as well as lunch with members of the Jain community.
