About Dilwara Temples, Mount Abu
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
- Mahavir Swami

Dilwara Temples, Mount Abu Reviews
it is one of the best architectural marvel of India.the view is enchanting. Dilwara Temple forms a famous pilgrimage of the followers of Jainism. The striking use of marble, in the construction of this temple, is truly worth-admiring.Dilwara Temples are considered to be an example of perfect architecture, in terms of Jain Temples. The intricately carved ceilings, entryways, pillars and panels highlight the aesthetic appeal of this temple
Dilwara Temple is the one of the best historical place.. It is pilgrim place ... Temple is related to jain community... Dilwara Temple has best architecture design... The carved marble design of entrance and every Temple.. Every person should visit this place I give 4... because they don't give the permission for photography..
No doubt the marble work is astounding. But the overall experience is dismal. I did feel like a sheep being herded. I understand some of their rules and respect it but the final ask for donation (of course if your heart so desired to donate) is nothing but coercive. Might as well ask for an entry charge and I would have been more than happy to pay. Rules about ladies periods time is none of religious or any other institutions business. On the whole, if you are seeking God's blessings...may you have his/her blessings. If you are going to admire the artwork and architecture...may as well go prepared.
Here one can notice excellent marvel works through out the temple. You need to visit to see the beautiful artworks. Rating 3 just just because Jainism is not well know to me. Photography was not allowed inside the temple.
A must visit place while at Mount Abu. So much intricate marble sculpture which is really a visual treat. Of course, one has to go through some pains such as standing in a big queue spending lot of time. Move along with a big crowd. Listen to the talk of official guide which may not be factual. But a seasoned traveller collects prior information from lots of sources. However this can not substitute the actual experience of seeing the thing with one's own eyes.
