Every piece of the temple architecture was mesmerizing.. Amazing workmanship and different designs in every nook and corner.. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take photos of the beautiful work.
Dilwara Jain Temples is one of the finest Jain temples known world over for its extraordinary architecture and marvelous marble stone carvings. It seems fairly basic temple from outside, but the temple interior showcases the extraordinary work of human craftsmanship at its best. These temples were built between 11th to 13th century AD. The beautiful lush green hills surrounding the temple gives a very pleasant feeling. A must visit place in Mount Abu.

Old and beautiful. These temples were built at least 1000 years ago. One can only imagine the creative talents of people back then. The carvings are beautiful. The idols in the temple are even more beautiful. Great location.
Amazing work of art. Peaceful place, a little far from the city bit worth all your time! Historical Monument, Decently maintained!
