Dilwara Temple In Mount Abu

Dilwara Temple or Dilwara Jain Temple in Mount Abu is a major attraction for tourists and locals. It is located a little more than 2.5 kilometers away from the city center. Constructed by Vastapul Tejpal, these temples were built between the 11th and the 13th centuries. They are world famous for the marble used in their construction, and the amazing detailed designing that is done on them.

History of Dilwara Temple

While talking about the history of Dilwara Temple, it is believed that this sacred pilgrimage site for the Jains is dedicated to Lord Rishabha. Built by Chalukya Dynasty in between the 11th and 13th century, it comprises five temples, including Vimal Vasahi, Luna Vasahi, Mahavir Swami, Pithalhar, and Parshvanath. All five of these temples are devoted to five Jain saints, and they have beautiful idols inside them. As the temple is surrounded by hills, and there was no conveyance to transport marble blocks to the hill at that time, it is believed that elephants were used to transfer marbles from Arasuri hills to Mount Abu.

Attractions of Dilwara Temple

Dilwara Temple is located right in the midst of a lush green forest land, and is surrounded by a high wall. Decked with carved pillars, ornamented ceilings, panels, and doorways, the architecture of this religious attraction is meant to marvel at.

Let’s take a look at its five temples that are the main attractions to explore here.

Mahavir Swami Temple: Devoted to Lord Mahavir, this Jain temple was built in 1582. Though, this temple is quite small in comparison to other temples, but the marvelous work done on its walls just leave everyone mesmerized.

Vimal Vasahi Temple: Dedicated to saint Adinath Ji, this is the oldest temple in the complex of Dilwara Temple. Constructed by Vimal Vasahi in 1031 AD, the major highlight of this attraction is the hall of ‘Guda Mandapa’, which is decorated with plenty of images of  Shri Adi Nath.

Khartar Vasahi Temple: The tallest shrine amongst all the temples in the Dilwara complex, it was built by the clan of Mandika in between 1458-1459 AD. Like other temples, this temple also decked with amazingly carved marble pillars.

Peethalhar Temple: Constructed by a minister from the dynasty of Gujarat- Bhim Shah, this temple was named Peethalhar as most of the statues in this temple are made with the use of Pittal, i.e. brass metal. The temple also comprises Nav Chowki and Gudu Mandapa.  

Luna Vasahi Temple: Dedicated to the 22nd Jain saint, this temple was built by Vastupal and Tejpal in 1230 AD. The temple houses a black marble idol of Shri Nemi Nathji apart from other 360 idols of jain saints.

Make sure to visit the temple when touring the other attractions of Mount Abu to get a sense of what architectural beauty stands for.

    Varun's 4 days trip to Mount Abu

    Overall, the trip was well planned and organized by Traveolla. They were quite flexible and helped with customizing the itenery as per our needs. The only are we felt they fell short was on the selection of hotels. Hotel Dior and hotel Rajputana Palace on the 1st and 3rd nights were really not up to the mark in terms of cleanliness and maintenance, which was a great let down. If Traveolla could do a bit more of a due research in this regard and provide better hotel options, the overall travel experience could be greatly improved.

    Tanmay's 3 days trip to Mount Abu

    The Travel Agent was continuously after me for the payment which I had clearly mentioned earlier (after the advance payment) that I'll make the full payment on arrival. Later on arrival, the agent insisted to transfer fund to their account rather than Travel Triangle Ac. Many other payment issues like paying for fuel etc. In order to clarify this I had called Apoorva also but she didnt pick up. We didn't like that. The driver was very courteous and gentle but didn't have recent information about the places we were about to visit coz of which we missed a couple of places as we were late. This was my 4th trip with Travel Triangle and sorry to say but worst of all.

    Sidharth's 3 days trip to Mount Abu

    The taxi that came to pick them up the very first day left us very disappointed. The AC was not working and the guests had to travel from Jaipur to Jodhpur, which is 350 km, without AC.I had to make multiple phone calls to Vital Holidays and Travel Triangle executives to follow up for the taxi replacement. On top of that , some of the executives from Vital Holidays like Miss Tina gave irrelevant arguments like 'the taxi looks fine in photos'. But thanks to Miss Suresh from Vital Holidays and Mr hemant from Travel Triangle,the taxi was replaced and the trip went smooth afterwards which started on a sour note.!! The hotel was perfect (though the choice was given by us to Vital Holidays, rather than Hotel choices given by them) and after the first day the Taxi service was better. Therefore, i am rating them good because issues were resolved promptly.Offers and travel packages provided Mr Mr Hitendra from Vital Holidays were satisfactory and also he was quite polite and cordial. Vital Holidays should focus on their after sale service a bit.Otherwise they are doing good. After the first day,the trip went on smoothly and the hotel was perfect (though we asked for this particular hotel).
