The Dilwara Temples are beautiful hallmarks to Jain values. Rajasthan is one of India’s jewels, well known for tourist favorites such as Jaipur. The Dilwara temples are unique for their use of black and white marble, and considered sacred sites for the Jain religion. The temples feature extravagantly carved marble columns and an ornately carved ceiling that rivals the artistry of famous temples such as Khajuraho. The carvings figure intricate geometric patterns and incredibly expressively realistic animals and human figures engaged in beautiful dances. The symmetrical perfection of the evenly spaced columns and black-and-white checkerboard floor is absolutely jaw-dropping. The view outside is also incredible, with miles of beautiful mountain range.
