Dilwara Jain Temples, Mount Abu

A sacred pilgrimage site for followers of Jainism, the ornately crafted marble of Dilwara Jain Temples attracts thousands from across the world with its opulent beauty. Erected between the 11th and 13th centuries, the five temples are surrounded by mango trees and wooded hills. Take your time to uncover the intricate marble carvings spread across the ceilings, entryways, pillars, and panels of the majestic temples. Local legend claims the artisan carvers received payment according to the amount of dust they collected from their work, which allegedly encouraged them to create intensely intricate details.

  • 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.
  • The Dilwara Jain temple is awesome. The exterior doesn't hold much attraction. The interior is superb. Full of marble carvings, it was a treat to watch. Photography is strictly prohibited. Cell and cameras have to be deposited outside. Do not miss it if you go to Mount Abu.
  • One of the best temple i have ever seen. You will be awestrucked by the amazing carving and beyond imagination history. Please visit this temple to understand culture more deeply.
  • It is a must visit. The carvings in the temples are excellent. There is no entry fee. Photography not allowed. Leather items are not allowed inside. Staff available there take the visitors in small groups and explains the history behind the temples. Finally, they request for some donation from the visitors whatever amount one likes to donate.
  • Although Jains built some beautiful temples at other places in Rajasthan, some[who?]believe that none come close to these in terms of architectural perfection. The ornamental detail spreading over the minutely carved ceilings, doorways, pillars and panels is simply marvellous.
