¤ Most Exquisite White Marvel
The Hatundi temple is one of the prettiest temples in Pali district
and perhaps in the whole of Rajasthan. Dedicated to the 24th and last
Jain saint Mahavira, the pink-white façade of the temple gives
it an exquisite appearance. The older part of the temple is pink in
colour, and it has a stairway on either end, which reaches up the huge
central dome. On the way up you will find three balconies or porches.
The temple has undergone extensive renovations of late, and six huge
cupolas with sharp turrets pointing skywards have been recently
constructed. The alabaster white colour of the central dome and the
cupolas contrasts vividly with the older part of the temple which is
in pink. All in all, the multi-coloured monument, is an unusual one,
built almost in the shape of the pyramids of Egypt. The
inner sanctum houses an imposing statue of Lord Mahavira himself.
