Yeah, someone decided to build his oriental fantasy home.

Which explains its "eclectic" architecture. The shikhar is North Indian style, the big arch seems to be taken from a buddhist cave, and other stuff seems to be copied from Cambodian temples.

In 2004 they started to build this Jaīn Temple in Antwerp, Belgium.
It should be finished by now, but I don't know its status.

Jesus Crimeny, those are beautiful! I didn't expect to see such beautiful temples outside of southeast Asia.

They make the little one in my city look like garbage:
