Jaisalmer Fort – Jain Temple, part 1

Inside Jaisalmer Fort is a complex of Jain temples. I saw and entered only one.  There isn’t much reliable information that I could find regarding either the name or when it was built.

In hindsight, this was the most spectacular of all the temples I visited.

Raj, my guide, mentioned that it took 30 years for this temple to be built. Considering all the exquisite carvings in the interior, that seems like an amazingly short amount of time in which to produce these results.
