The next halt - Dilwara (Jain)Temple has amazing architecture and is a definite no miss for people visiting Mount Abu. In total it has five temples in it namely Vimal Vasahi, Luna Vasahi, Pithalhar, Parshvanath and Mahavir Swami. The temple provides a free guide to all the people visiting the temple.Time spent: 45 mins
On the way back we stopped at the Dilwara Jain Temples. Dilwara temples are remarkable examples of Jain architecture and are known for country’s finely decorated temples. Made of marble, these two temples are center of attraction for tourists and those who believes in the Jainism. Vimal Vashai is the older temple, dates back to as early as year 1031. It is dedicated to the first tirthankar of Jains, Adinath. It is said that 1500 masions and 1200 laborers built it in 14 years. The other one, the Luna Vashi temple is dedicated to the Neminath, the 22nd tirthankar and was built about two centuries later in about 15 years. The temple complex is in the city boundary only and you can easily walk your way to it since it is very near to parking place.
Dilwara Jain temples located about 2½ kilometers from Mount Abu These temples were built between 11th to 13th centuries AD, It's a heaven for architecture lovers! The temples are an emblem of perfection. The beautiful stone carvings, the design and structure. If you want to see the Perfection in creation you must visit Dilwara Jain Temple. But make sure that you have a guide to get the information. Visitors are allowed entry from 12.00 noon to 5.00 pm. We headed to main city for lunch there is famous restaurant Sher-E Punjab here u can get Non-veg food taste also good. Now we back to hotel to same rest. After getting 2 hour of rest we went to see Sun set point u have to walk for 1km car are not allowed and it’s crowded to but its perfect destination for photographers. You can enjoy the view here which gives a good glimpse of the mountains and the plains beneath as well. There is also place to sit and relax or you can get yourself seated on one of the rocks there. Come early here to occupy the best spot to view the sunset.
Morning, we again took our rented two wheeler and headed towards Dilware Jain Mandir, The marble carvings inside the temple were beautiful that one cannot describe, We had pure Jain food in our lunch from Dilware Jain mandir Bhojanalaya.This was the best part of our visit, One thing to note down that photography is not allowed inside the temple. From there, we move towards Trevors tank which is surrounded by dense forest and famous for Fish and Crocodiles, we spent some time there and came back. This place was located at quite outer part of Mount Abu, while returning we went to Adhar Devi Temple, It was also very close to our hotel.In evening we move towards honeymoon point located at another end of Mount Abu, The place is full of tourist and lots of monkeys. After spending their 1 hour we left and now this was my turn to drive vehicle, Again we came back to Main market had some snacks, did some small shopping of local stuff, small gifts for friends and returned back to hotel, Day 2 was quite hectic so we just had our dinner and slept off as next day morning we have to catch train to return back to home. We woke up next day, Hotel staff makes our breakfast ready early morning, we had breakfast, took the taxi and reached Abu Road to catch our train. The whole journey was beautiful and we had awesome memories of this place and two - three days are enough to explore complete Mount Abu.This post was originally published on Expressions Of My Thoughts.
The Dilwara Jain Temples are famous in the world for their gorgeous use of marble. Built between the 11th and 13th century, these five temples are located two-and-a-half kilometres away from Mount Abu. Many believe that no other architectural marvel matches these temples in terms of their intricate carvings and engraved ceilings and doorways. Remember to click mental pictures, because photography is not allowed inside. The Dilwara temples are open everyday from 12 to 5pm.Have you been to Rajasthan yet? If yes, then share your experience with me in the comments section below, or write your own travelogue to share with the world. And if you haven't travelled to this multi-hued state yet, then I'd suggest you stop waiting. Because as they say, ‘Jaane kya dikh jaye’.
