Dilwara Jain Temples
A centre of Jain pilgrimage, The Dilwara Temples built during the period of 11th - 13th century are an amazing fusion of simple elegance and architectural brilliance. These marble temples, comprising five in number, are surrounded by mango trees and wooded hills, which further lend a charming ambience to the temples. The five temples are Vimal Vasahi Temple, Luna Vasahi Temple, Pithalhar Temple, Khartat Vasahi Temple and Mahaveer Swami Temple. The amount of ornamental detail spread over these structures in the minutely carved decoration of ceilings, doorways, pillars, panels and niches is simply marvelous.
Nakki Lake derives its name from the legend that the gods formed the lakebed by digging it with their nails (nakh), hence the name. Situated in the centre of the city, the lake is surrounded by a beautiful crop of hills and bizarre rock formations. Some of these rock formations have been given names such as the Toad Rock, Nun Rock, Nandi Rock because of their resemblances to these figures. In the past, several kings of Rajasthan used to build their summer palaces around Nakki Lake. Tourists can still see the former summer palace of Maharaja of Jaipur that is perched right above the hill and provides scenic views of the water.
