This is one place which you will keep looking at and staring about how can one crest such a masterpiece. This is a Jain temple and is worth visiting for its architecture and marvel.

This was my second trip to the Dilwara temple (first was in college) and I wanted to show my family the beautiful carvings. They were very pleased by my choice even though it meant going out of the way. Be warned, you cannot go early - up to 11 am, services are only for Jains.

Temple rework is going on and it was good experience viewing all that, what I did not like is that they don't allow camera inside the premises.
