Jain Temples, Jaisalmer

4.4
Admire the artistry and architecture of Jain Temples, a collection of holy sites located within the walls of the city's fort. Built between the 12th and 15th centuries CE, the temples feature elegantly carved edifices, whose intricate sandstone exteriors establish patterns that lead inside to the main prayer rooms. The whole temple complex offers the chance to learn more about the Jain community that has created so many of the notable buildings and institutions within the World Heritage-listed city. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Jaisalmer trip simple and quick.

  • Perhaps the title of Jincheng makes Jaisalmer a daydream, but in fact the sights are very common. Not very recommended here, the city is remote, transportation and food, accommodation costs are actually high. , the temple is very general, is far from the thousand Pillar Temple.

  • Stunning old temples, lovely to see the basic but intriguing intricate architecture and carvings. A heads up, don't wear leather, including belts and wallets when entering these places, and don't be offended if you're a female and anyone enquires if it's "that time of the month". Plenty of rituals to see, expect to give donations to see most which is standard practice. Ask the priests what is happening and if it's something you want, you will be "persuaded" but just respectfully say no or ignore. I give donations to the rituals I participated or observed as a rule

There are seven Jain temples in total which are situated next to one another within the Jaisalmer fort. they are known for their exquisite work of art and architecture They were built by wealthy Jain traders, by permission of the Hindu rulers of Jaisalmer.
