Dilwara Temple


Dilwara temple at Mount Abu in Rajasthan is without doubt an example of Indian sculpture at its very best. The temple is situated in the picturesque hill station of Mount Abu.

 

This beautiful Jain temple also serves as the storehouse of some ancient and extremely precious manuscripts and treatise.

 

Built in the Nagara style of temple architecture, it was constructed between 800AD and 1200AD. The inscriptions on the temple clearly suggest that it was a seat of Shaivism and Jainism.

 

It is impossible to deny the artistic beauty of Dilwara Temple. This rock temple is richly ornated by fantastic sculptures. You will have to admit the exceptional skill that is required to convert a stone into such a fine art object. Dilwara temple is a poetry in rocks and the carved pillars and intricately sculptured ceilings are a treat to watch. This is one of the finest specimens of temple architecture at its zenith.
