Nasiyan Jain Temple, Ajmer
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Observe the sandstone architecture of Nasiyan Jain Temple, and inspect the ornate, intricate "city of gold" representing the Jain religion. Upon completion of the temple's construction in 1865, sculptors took another 25 years to complete the detailed three-dimensional depiction of the Jain ancient world. This masterful display consists of scores of wooden figures plated in gold, representing deities and core beliefs. Bring your camera to capture this impressive display, and snap pictures of the 25 m (82 ft) Mana Stambha that dominates the temple complex outside.
