You rarely see such beautiful piece of art. Amazing and beautiful. It will make you 'WAOO'. Complete temple is made of marble carving, too good work. You're not allowed inside the temple with your shoes on. So be aware that you'll have to walk inside all barefoot.Too many people, visitors. Try to go there on a weekday. They don't allow... More

For Jain it's place for worship. I urge others don't take it as art but try to understand reasons behind it to built. It's center for worship not the place to enjoy its art. It's art for worship and respect who has built it.

Dilwara Temples at Mount Abu are probably the most beautiful amongst the Jain Temples in the world. The Temples look simple from outside but as you step inside, you are awestruck by the intricate carvings on white marble. Absolutely amazing and beautiful sculpturing by the craftsmen. You can spend hours inside the complex which consists of five temples. Peaceful and... More

The Dilwara temples of Mount Abu were constructed way back between the 11th to 15th century, the temple looks very simple from the outside but once you are inside be prepared to be awestruck by the overload of art, the intricate carvings on the marble stone takes the definition of art and sculpturing to whole new level. There is a... More

The dilwara Jain temples are located in mount Abu in Rajasthan. They hold religious importance for all jains because of the presence of the idols of their deity. Also, a lot of tourist both Indian and foreigners come to meditate in the premises of these temples. Gold covered idols and shrines makes it more attractive.
