Rai Badridas Bahadur Mukim, an esteemed member of Jewelers community of Kolkata built this Parasnath Jain temple and decorated it with beautiful glass work from in and outsides. He was a great follower of Jainism. He established eye-catching idols of Jain Tirthankar, Gandharas, and Yaksha- Yakshanis made in fine quality marble. He did not forget to establish a temple right side the main temple of his Guru Sri Kalyan Surishwar Ji Maharaj along with his forefathers Kalkadas Sindhar et al. He concentrated on the architecture of the temple. Though it is built in accordance with Jain temple architecture, the influence of British, French and Italian arts are visible here and there. It is worth noting that he himself was the planner, designer, and architect of this wonderful temple. His love for fine art and aesthetic sense inspired him to decorate the main temple with Gemstones, colorful Belgian glasses, chandeliers and hand paintings.He did not forget to include Terracotta statues, the art of Bengal in his layout. Gardens, lawns, and ponds are parts of the magnificent landscape of the temple.
