The Delwara temples have some of the finest and most intricate carvings we have seen in temples. The ceilings are decorated with different sculptures and shapes everywhere. It was beautiful. It's a peaceful place and a must visit for history lovers. Too bad there are no guides to explain the beauty of this place. And it's a shame that photography... More

Structure is getting dilapidated, as compared to what I saw about 10 years ago. Not maintained as well. The place is worth a visit, to appreciate the art and labour that went into building this place. Place was chaotic around the shoe counter. May be better to leave them in the car.

Magnificent and very detailed carvings. They are a cluster of 5 Jain Temples. The first and the second ones in the complex are the most impressive. Each of the pillar, ceiling, central dome etc. is fully adorned and carved. Should have 1-2 hours for a visit.

Until I visited Dilwara temples, I was of the opinion that Hoysala temples in Halebid, Belur and Hampi are the ones with intricate architecture. But Dilwara temple is way ahead with a tremendous intricacy in marble architecture.
