Dilwara temple complex

04Built between the 11th and the 13th centuries these temples are superb examples of Jain devotional architecture. The simplicity of the exterior of the complex makes the intricacy and beauty of the carved white marble interiors all the more outstanding. The temple complex consists of five sections, each devoted to one of the major trithankaras (teachers) of the Jain religion. The Temples are open to everyone most days in the early afternoon. There is no charge.  Photography is not allowed inside the temple complex, nor are shoes and leather items.
