History Of Jain Temples In Toronto.
In 1974, The Jain Society of Toronto (JSOT) was chartered as a non-profit religious institution by a visionary group of individuals. Their objective was to provide a forum for Jains to observe and perform various activities related to Jainism, to preserve Jain culture for future generations and to promote fellowship among all Jains. A Church was converted to make a Temple and this, in fact, was the first Jain temple of north America.
However, Gyan and Kanchan Jain always wanted to have an authentic Shikharbandi Jain temple to be built in Toronto. Having already establised the Shri S.S. Jain foundation, a charitable foundation, in 1992, they assimilated their desires and the foundation started working towards their goal.
