You can find animal & human figures, carved in famous Dilwara style (Dilwara Temple, Mount Abu which were built between 11 & 13 Centuries ). Like all other structures in Jaisalmer, these temples too are made of yellow sand stones. The beautifully carves decorations on the wall brings divine peace to our mind. 1-DSC052011-DSC05192
