“must visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Must visit for the equisite carvings. Its dissappointing that photography was not allowed. Parking is a problem if you are driving down to this place since the approach road gets clogged on weekends. Its better to park your car well before the temple and walk down to avoid getting stuck in a traffic jam.

“Profusion of intricate carvings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

A collection of temples dating back to the 11th Century.
Beautiful & intricate carvings were fascinating, as were some gigantic metal statues. Would have liked some more information about these statues / carvings so that one could better appreciate the context & history of these temples.
The ban on photography was inexplicable.

“Wonderful Sculptures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Its really beautiful, to watch the carvings in marble. But camera, mobiles, even water bottles prohibited. Also the floor is too cold since it is made of marble. Do remember to wear socks before you enter.

“Craftmanship par excellence - A must watch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

If TAJ Mahal is working magic with marble on a bigger scale Dilwara Temple complex is about the minute. Build close to a millenia ago with constant additions in the next 600-700 years the temple complex is just a marvel. The artisans have truly worked magic with marble that left me mersmerized. A definate must watch even if you are not into history.
