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.

  • Truly a must visit site once you are in Mount Abu. Don't be deceived by the simple exteriors. The interiors are a rare, amazing works of intricate carvings on marble. Entry is free and the temple trust provides free, very helpful guide to explain all the details. Visiting hours are from 12 noon to 6 pm, no breaks, no holidays. Easily accessible place.
  • Dilwara Temple is the one of the best historical place.. It is pilgrim place ... Temple is related to jain community... Dilwara Temple has best architecture design... The carved marble design of entrance and every Temple.. Every person should visit this place I give 4... because they don't give the permission for photography..
  • 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.
  • it is one of the best architectural marvel of India.the view is enchanting. Dilwara Temple forms a famous pilgrimage of the followers of Jainism. The striking use of marble, in the construction of this temple, is truly worth-admiring.Dilwara Temples are considered to be an example of perfect architecture, in terms of Jain Temples. The intricately carved ceilings, entryways, pillars and panels highlight the aesthetic appeal of this temple
  • Beautiful marble temples, words can't explain the beauty of these temples. One just needs to see these places and experience it. Hats of to all those who are responsible for building these almost a 1000 years back.
