For many years Jain Center of Greater Charlotte (JCGC) has been planning for and working on building a Jinalay (temple) of their own. This dream finally materialized as the brand new Jain Temple opened its doors on Monday, September 12th, 2011. Located at 7631 Mallard Creek Rd, Charlotte, NC 28262, the marvelous 8400 SF Jain Center is built on nearly 3 acres of land. Currently the Center has a large worship hall, a stage for cultural programs, and several multi-purpose rooms.
The Jain Center is first temple dedicated to Jain faith in North Carolina. It is the only temple of its kind between Atlanta, GA and Washington DC. Outside of some dedicated Jain temples in Florida, Charlotte’s Jain temple is the only place serving the Jain community in North Carolina, South Carolina, and adjoining areas in nearby states.
