The Jain temples at Dilwa?a in Mount Abu evoke a sense of awe for their sculptural artistry. Unnamed artists who had, for years, created exquisite pieces in ivory, now worked with marble, sculpting ceiling and domes, columns and walls, creating works of unparalleled beauty. They carried forward, and deepened, a rich tradition of temple building in India, with their plethora of images from Indian myths and legends. The most outstanding feature of these temples are the thousand-petalled lotuses that decorate the domes in the ra?gama??apas, signifying a very highly evolved technical and artistic achievement.Some 200 km away from the Mount Abu, in Ranakpur, the Adisvara Temple is an achievement of a different kind. It is renowned for its architectural splendour; a thousand columns that define its wondrous spaces are all unique, as no two are alike.Printed Pages: 221.
