Jain Temple entrance

1-DSC05179

Jain Temple within the Jailsalmer Fort which is better known as Sonar Kella.

Three exquisitely sculptured Jain temples dedicated  to  Rishabhdevji, Sambhavanathji and the Ashthapadi temple are located within the fort. Their ornamentation, done in the style of the Dilwara temples at Mt. Abu, is marvelous. The emerald icon of Mahavira here is an unparalleled gem.
