Rajasthan Jain Temples
Speaking of Jain temples, western India namely Rajasthan is renowned
for its dazzling temples built by rich Jain merchants. Jain temples
are the richest in India and their splendour surpasses Mughal
architecture at its best. With marble as the central theme, Jain
temples boast of amazing finesse apparent in intricate carvings
especially on ceilings and pillars. Jainism continued to make its
subtle impact even during the Mughal rule, with the only difference
being that at times Jain temples were built on the lines of a fort
with a high wall surrounding the entire complex.
