Jain Temples, Jaisalmer

4.4
Admire the artistry and architecture of Jain Temples, a collection of holy sites located within the walls of the city's fort. Built between the 12th and 15th centuries CE, the temples feature elegantly carved edifices, whose intricate sandstone exteriors establish patterns that lead inside to the main prayer rooms. The whole temple complex offers the chance to learn more about the Jain community that has created so many of the notable buildings and institutions within the World Heritage-listed city. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Jaisalmer trip simple and quick.

  • The temples are located inside the fort, they are small but the stonework will enchant you....

  • Jaisism was founded in India more than 2000 years ago. The temples are rich in statues and decorations. The architecture is overwhelming. Really an experience to wander through these temples and record everything in you.

  • Great interior. Extreme level of fine craftsmanship! Those stone sculptors treated stones like a piece of paper! One has to visit to see this! The artistic side - AWESOME! The spiritual environment - didn't feel much.
  • Clean, quiet and beautiful are the only three statements that can sum up this place. The architectural splendour is an added attraction.
