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 - Write a Review
The Dilwara Jain temple is awesome. The exterior doesn't hold much attraction. The interior is superb. Full of marble carvings, it was a treat to watch. Photography is strictly prohibited. Cell and cameras have to be deposited outside. Do not miss it if you go to Mount Abu.
It is a must visit. The carvings in the temples are excellent. There is no entry fee. Photography not allowed. Leather items are not allowed inside. Staff available there take the visitors in small groups and explains the history behind the temples. Finally, they request for some donation from the visitors whatever amount one likes to donate.
Very good place, many temples, great internal tour given by temple guide, which is free of cost. Great caricature inside. Must see.
Too beautiful. Carvings are just excellent. Visit it when sun's reflection come inside temple and you will be mesmerized by its beauty.
It is a beautiful Jain temple. You are not allowed to take phones or cameras with you. It is a little crowded but the crowd is well managed . People are taken inside in a group by a guide who gives a entire round of the temple complex after which you can roam freely. The curiving and sculptural work on the pillars inside is breathtaking.
