Dilwara Jain Temples

Dilwara Temples are one of the best Jain temples & various still believe them architecturally greater to the Taj Mahal.

*Built between 11th & 13th century, the mainly outstanding feature is its exquisite carvings in marble.

The two temples Vimala Vasahi & Luna Vasahi are singled out by experts as superb examples of architecture.

Dilwara Temples - An Architectural Marvel

Mount Abu's chief claims to fame are the Jain temples architecture at Dilwara, about 5km from Nakki Lake.

The Dilwara temples were built during the age of Jain supremacy and are one of the greatest Jain temples India has to present.

A group of skilled believes them architecturally greater to the Taj Mahal. The architecture is marked by carvings that are not just ethereally beautiful in structure however are often presented in a very poetic context.

For instance, one of the marble nayikas (maidens) is depicted as having just emerged from her bath. Droplets falling from her long hair are shown being drunk by a swan sitting by her feet.
Wonderful Temple Carvings

Maybe the most wonderful quality of Jain temple design is its carvings. And that is an understatement. Everywhere one looks, be it pillars, ceilings, walls and floors, Jain temples go to the great – and beyond it – while it comes to adorning their temples with the very stone they effort with. Jain myths, saints, gods and goddesses, monks, devotees or just good old religious motifs all find their way in a spectacular rendezvous in marble and rock.

Every nook and corner of Jain temples are so thoroughly carved that it’s a wonder that the edifice was created out of plain stone. Carving is perhaps not the correct word for Jain temples – chiseling would be more suitable.

Their fragile delicacy merged with an architectural lexicon is what constitutes the basis of these astonishing temples. Just put, present is not an inch where one can place his offer and not encounter a spectacular frieze.
