Welcome to Rajasthan Tourism
The Jain Temples of Jaisalmer are a cluster of temples dating back to the 12th and 15th century. The temples, dedicated to two Jain Tirthankars (hermits) – Rikhabdevji and Shambhavdevji – are popular pilgrimage destinations. As is characteristic of any structure in Jaisalmer, these temples too, are built of yellow sandstone. The Dilwara style of architecture is borrowed from the famous Dilwara Temples at Mount Abu, a hill station popular among tourists and pilgrims. The walls of the ancient temples are beautifully decorated with intricate carvings. One can sit quietly within the complex and feel at peace. One can also visit the Gyan Bhandar Library. Students of comparative archaeology, or anyone else looking for knowledge, will delight in browsing through some of the rare manuscripts preserved here.
