Once we visited a jain temple in the Rajasthan where I encountered a very rare sight when a large group of jaines monks were travelling together to have the rites of last cremation of the departed leader! They were all bald and with a mask on their mouth!

Hey buddy jain monks usually get off their hair because they follow strict rules to be bald while they perform cermonies and sacrifices. Monks who are bald is a common thing seen, i find no surprise in it.
