  • Right in the middle of the fortified complex is this pair of Jain temples, dating from the 12th and 16th centuries, small but impressive aesthetic impact. Inside you will discover delicate sculptures and precious inlays who kidnap the gaze, transporting it towards the top of the columns and vaults.

  • Impossible not to find them and visit them. Charge of a serene mysticism we spend easily an hour enjoying a puja shared with the locals.

  • Beautiful carvings, nice architecture and clean place. I am not a big fan of buildings but still a nice place if you like buildings with carvings and sculptures and history.
