sculpted walls, Jain Temples of Jaisalmer Fort
wall sculpture on Jain Temples | Jaisalmer Fort | Jan 2012
Rajasthan has quite a few of the Jain temples, the most famous of them found in Dilwara (Mount Abu). This photograph is from a section of a wall of the Jain temple inside the Fort Complex at Jaisalmer. Pretty amazing when you consider that these date back to between 12th and 15th century. These sculptures and exquisite carvings are a reflection of India’s glorious past, rich in history and art and civilization. Like most of the architecture in Jaisalmer, these temples are carved of yellow sandstones. I chose black and white instead, to focus on the intricate carvings and rich details here !
