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.
The five temples that are named after the village they are located in:
- Vimal Vasahi
- Luna Vasahi

from the outside it doesn't look like a temple but the guide explained that it was purposefully done so in order to protect the attack from nawabs during those days.All the 4 temples have different sculpture.The king built the first temple while the queen wanted to build the better one and labors built the one more with the additional and waste building materials free of cost.During that time labors used to get gold and silver coins as a reward .Overall, its a good place to visit but premise not clean and too hot to walk barefoot after 3pm.
Such a beautiful place with so much powerful energy! It's worth the visit, specially if you've never been to a place like this. You might spend at least 1 hour there. Some notes: you can't take pictures inside, you need to leave your shoes and water bottles outside.
Must visit place. One of the best jain temples. Temple doesn't charge for entry. Priest guides us and tell us the history of how this was built and taken care. Open for tourists from 12 to 6 pm. Photography wasn't allowed.
माउंट आबू मे बना हुआ यह मंदिर दिलवाड़ा के जैन मंदिर के नाम से जाना जाता है।कहते है कि भगवान कृष्ण ने यहा एक मैदान को अपने नाखून से एक झील का बना डाला था।यह मंदिर अपनी कलाकृति एवं अद्भुतता का बेजोड़ नमूना है जो पूरे विश्व का ध्यान अपनी ओर आकर्षित करता है।
The temples are itself a great work of architecture.... The art and design of each and every piece is very beautiful and attractive....
