Though no one will chastise you too severely for confusing Jainism with Hinduism (both originated in India and, in practice, are closely related), they are different religions. That's an important fact to be aware of when you pay a visit to Mombasa's Shree Jain Temple, the first of its kind to be constructed outside of the Asian continent. Built in 1963, this beautifully decorated white marble structure is adorned with statues, gold spires, silver doors and plenty of other features that make it well worth your time and attention. It's located just outside the southwestern borders of Old Town which means you won't have to walk far to find it, and guided tours will be gladly provided for visitors. Just remember to adhere to some common courtesies like removing your shoes and not bringing any leather onto the grounds and you'll be in for one of the city's more underrated cultural exhibits.
