Bird`s Charity Hospital

The building built in 1956 under the instructions of Acharya Deshbhushan Maharaj, hospital itself was started in 1930.

The temple premises house a unique medical center for birds, the Bird`s Charity Hospital. Free treatment is given here, which draws inspiration from the message of `Live and let Live` given by Lord Mahavir. It serves as a rescue sanctuary for partridges, caught and wounded by fowlers and bought. Squirrels, who will not hurt the birds, are also treated here, but birds of prey are seen on a strictly outpatient basis, as they are not vegetarian.

The birds are then treated, bathed and are given nutritious diet so that it recover soon. It is eventually released, especially on Saturdays, after it is declared fit and healthy.

The birds are first held in the intensive care unit and are eventually transferred to the general wards, where it regain its wings and eventually fly off. Fed, a vegetarian diet of bread and cheese, treatments are free of cost and funded by Jain donations. The hospital separates its vegetarian patients from its non-vegetarian counterparts. Carnivorous predators such as eagles, hawks and falcons are housed exclusively on the first floor.

Every Saturday, a section of the roof is opened and the recovered birds fly away. The hospital follows a central tenet of Jainism - a commitment towards enabling the freedom of all living beings, no matter how small or insignificant it is. And once the birds are admitted, those are never returned to its owners for fear of likely confinement.

History

Old Delhi was founded by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan (1628-1658) who built what is commonly known as the old city or walled city, surrounded by a wall, with the main street Chandni Chowk in front of the Red Fort, the imperial residence.

During the Mughal period, the construction of a shikhara for a temple was not permitted. This temple did not have a formal shikhara until after India`s independence when the temple was extensively rebuilt.
