The Dilwara Temples of India are located about 2½ kilometres from Mount Abu, Rajasthan’s only hill station. These Jain temples were built by Vimal Shah and designed by Vastapul-Tejpal, Jain laymen between the 11th and 13th centuries AD and are famous for their use of marble and intricate marble carvings. The five marble temples of Dilwara are a sacred pilgrimage place of the Jains. Some consider them to be one of the most beautiful Jain pilgrimage sites in the world.The temples have an opulent entranceway, the simplicity in architecture reflecting Jain values like honesty and frugality. The temples are in the midst of a range of forested hills. A high wall shrouds the temple complex.
Although Jains built some beautiful temples at other places in Rajasthan, Dilwara temples are believed to be most beautiful example of architectural perfection. The ornamental detail spreading over the minutely carved ceilings, doorways, pillars and panels is simply marvellous.
Dilwara Jain temples are master piece of Indian Architecture.The skills with which the temples were built is simply mind boggling.The only word to describe this master piece is precision & craftsmen ship.The work done on marble is breath taking.Every design is worth
Very nice place to visit and see the history.it was really a nice visit and time spent there was too good.the time worth spending there and we got a guide there also who briefly explained the history.a must place to visit with family.you can enjoy the market there also.
I can always recommend places like dekwara temple because it has its own exclusiveness. Beautiful ornamentation in marble and well defined volumes can allow us to fall in love with it.
Jain temple is known for its Artichectural marvel, for non-jains temple remains open from 12 Noon to 6:00 PM, Temple samiti arrange guide who will take you in various temples and describe about them. Must visit as this temple is one of it’s own type.
