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. Photography is prohibited inside the temples.

  • “amazing architecture!” Beautiful temple! Must visit when in Mount Abu. It opens at 12pm till 6pm. Photography is not allowed inside the temple. Entry is free. It is a not to be missed sight.
  • Very beautiful Jain temples... These temples built by Chalukya between the 11th and 13th centuries AD are world famous for their stunning use of marble. The five legendary marble temples of Dilwara are a sacred pilgrimage place of the Jains. Some consider them to be one of the most beautiful Jain pilgrimage sites in the world. The marble temples have an opulent entranceway, the simplicity in architecture reflecting Jain values like honesty and frugality. The temples are in the midst of a range of forested hills. A high wall shrouds the temple complex.
