  • This is certainly an impressive building and worth visiting if you combine it with something else. We did a day trip from Udaipur which also covered Kumbhalgarh fort. For us it would not be worth a da...  more »
  • A spectacular white marble structure worked so refined: 1444 pillars all different, embroidered and populated domes of mythical figures of all kinds. Everything on the slopes of the Aravalli range, in the middle of the Bush. Although no longer so isolated as it was 35 years ago, when I visited the first time, is absolutely one of the most beautiful and fascinating places I've seen in India

  • A beautiful temple, very finely crafted. All is open on the outside, offering beautiful play of light on the marble. Somewhere quiet where you can hear the squawking of birds, view on the surrounding Valley.

  • By far the best Jain temple we have seen yet. The monk that explained the temple was very nice and informative. The marble designs are awesome and intricate. This certainly is a must see place. Roads to and from a recent a but challenging. My two little kids enjoyed the place too. Especially when the monk did "ohm" under one of the domes. The plethora of monkeys outside were an additional plus.
  • The uniqueness of the temple is that it is known to be built on hundreds of pillars with beautiful sculptures engraved at every corners possible in the temple. The temple is known to be so famous that even the tourists or god believers are charged extra if they are carrying mobile phones with camera. Against this policy of the temple, we all agreed to deposit our mobiles & camera, so we couldn’t click any pictures. But, we were spellbound by the beauty & architecture of the temple. Amongst all pillars or columns, one pillar was intentionally built at some inclination with the vertical plane. It was informed to us that this particular pillar was intentionally built so as to make everyone believe that it is made by humans & without any help from any sort of machinery equipments
  • Amazing place! Really beautiful curvings, entiant temple and nature... The tickets will cost 200 rs for foreigners and 15 rs for infian people. Also if you want to take a pictures on your mobile, you dhould pay 100 rs. Foreigners also get free audio guide! Must to visit!
  • Adeshwar bhagavan , best architectuur place 500 yrs old , is dine great and Rooms available with good food, evening dinner time before sunset. 150 Rent per room for Jains
  • The Temple is beautifully built. There are 3 more small temple besides the main temple. The Jain Food House has a 'Thali' all-you-can-eat system which offers excellent Jain style food at a very cheap price. The one bad thing about this place is lack of transport facilities from here. Govt. buses come rarily and there is no auto or taxi services. The best way to visit it is using a personal vehicle but the way cuts through hills and valleys so only a very trained driver should be driving.
