Dilwara Temples - Review
Considered to be one of the most beautiful Jain pilgrimage sites in the world, the Dilwara Temples are a major tourist attraction in Mount Abu, Rajasthan. A Jain layman Vastupal Tejpal built these temples way back in the 11th/13th century. These unique temples are mostly known for the stunning use of marble that makes their appearance even more appealing. The detailed work on the doorways, ceilings, pillars and panels takes this incredible site close to perfection. Once attacked by Allauddin Khilji, the temples have gone under repairs and currently are administered by Seth Kalyanji Parmanand Ji Pedi of Sirohi.

Dilwara Temples, Mount Abu Reviews
One of the most beautiful Jain temple I have ever visited... It looks so mysterious and different from other temples as it has idols of other Hindu gods also which is rare to see in a Jain temple... Which point towards God is one..must Visit
If you have an eye for intricate architecture, this is very much your go-to place. They don't have any entry tickets and the priests very comprehensively explain you the history of temple complex. Photography is not at all allowed and you have to submit phones and cameras at the entrance.

These Jain temples were built by Vimal Shah and designed by Vastupal-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 the most beautiful example of architectural perfection. The ornamental detail spreading over the minutely carved ceilings, doorways, pillars and panels is simply marvellous.
11th century temple is great for historical and spiritual visit. Nice craftsmanship on the temple. Nice place to visit.
Outstanding art on marble inside the temple. Temple opens from 12 noon for non-jain people. Photography is not allowed inside temple.
