Jain Pilgrim Tour
JAIN PILGRIMAGES : Dilwara Temple, Mt Abu:

Dilwara Temple, Mt Abu For many visitors, this is reason enough to visit Mt. Abu Located within an ancient mango grove, the Dilwara temples are profusely carved, and are open between noon and six in the evening. During the morning, the priests perform several ritual ceremonies that are not open for public viewing. The Jains house images of their tirthankaras (those who impart knowledge) within the sanctums, and the two main shrines, those of Adinath and Neminath, are elaborately carved, from doorways and lintels to ceilings, pillars, walls and arches. The sculptor's art is as much a dedication to the gods as it is a repository of the stone-carver's skill, enshrined here forever. A separate hall, dedicated to the donors who worked towards the building of these magnificent temples, houses their life size images including the delicate tracery of their delicate tracery of their garments captured in exquisite detail on marble.
