Located on Tonk Road, Sanganer is 16 kilometres from Jaipur and dates back to the early 18th century. Sanganeri prints and the hand-crafted paper industry dates back to over 300 years, to the reign of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. One of the prominent historical districts in Jaipur, Sanganer is a central hub for industrial practices involving the manufacture of paper and blocks prints since time immemorial. Initially, the town encircled many small palaces and royal courts, most of which are reduced to gravel and dust today. The remnants of these palatial enigmas and the archaic Jain temple structures are the popular tourist destinations and are frequented by domestic and international vacationers. The town of Sanganer is well known for the handmade paper industry and the Jain temples. The prints manufactured at Sanganer are also extremely popular and are unique in design. At present, there are about 10 paper industries in Sanganer and countless Jain temples. One of the most prominent Jain temples here is the 'Shri Digambar Jain Temple' that resembles the Dilwara Temple structure at Mount Abu.
