500 Years old temples
Aug 2021
I might be biased being a Jain myself, but they are a must visit temple. They are nearly 500 years old temples and house of nearly 1000 year old manuscripts.

Tip - Ask the Pujari to show you the hidden treasures of the temple.

Nice temples but...
Aug 2021 • Couples
Nice temples at first sight but unworthy if you have previously visited Ranakpur Jain Temples...moreover people ask you to pay for everything...to watch out your shoes, to take any photo...a man even asked me to pay for a photo of a statue which in Jainism are supposed to be holy and unavailable for any picture...and the entrance is 200 r per person... go and spend them elsewhere. ..

Well worth visiting - the amount of work and detail is incredible!
Jul 2021
Simply incredible - the amount of work and detail in the temples is mind-blowing. This is a place worth travelling quite a distance to see. A Jain guide can also help you understand a little what you are seeing and is recommended.

Mar 2021
The Jain Temples in Jaisalmer Fort :-

These temples are famous for their Dilwara style carving with architecture & sculptures that were predominant in the medieval era. The temples are built out of yellow sandstone and have intricate engravings on them. These temples have archaeological and religious significance attached to them. A huge chain of corridors connecting all the seven temples with numerous captions and stone sculptures is one of the key features of this religious place.

"Lodurva Jain Temple in Lodurva :-

This is around 10- 11 km from main Jaisalmer city
At the entrance, there is a beautiful Toran and the temple looked through this looks as if it has been garlanded

Lodurva temple, dedicated to 23rd Jain Teerthankara Parshvnath. It is also an example of the cosmopolitan nature of the place as the temple structure has clear Chinese influence. This region was a part of the Silk route and an entry point into India. No wonder that the traders and travellers brought in their influences into the life and art of the city.
The structure appears to be very recent but there are signs of old stone pieces being used as you can see signs of vandalism on the anthropomorphic figurines. It is a typical eight corners temple architecture. But gives an impression of being a pagoda style because of its slanting walls. In an amalgamated style, the walls carry the intricate Jali or lattice work in stone while the Shikhara or the superstructure is a typical Nagar style. There is one Shikhara that has a tiered structure.
A Kalpataru tree is enclosed in a stone structure with only its frozen blacktop visible from the outside. This is supposed to be the wish-fulfilling tree

Feb 2021 • Family
Situated in Lodurva ,15 kms from JAISALMER. Temples are ultimate in beautiful architecture and fills you with divine senses. History date backs to 800 to 1200 years with nice explanation by monks residing there. There is a snake hole from where Nag comes to have milk . You will also find locals selling Habur stone -the curd making stone outside this temple.

Gorgeous temples
Feb 2021 • Couples
Each stone in the temple is worth looking at.
At an age where every work was done by hands, such an intricate work is really a piece of art.
An humble bow to the hard work of workers who made such a mammoth piece of art into reality.
