      You’re so right. People did amazing things, in line with their times and resources.
      We were in Rome just a few months earlier. Roman architecture and grandeur is mind blowing, even though they were built in BC! One of these days, I’ll write about our experiences in Rome.

    Such a detailed post, Jyoti.
    I have visited these temples and I’m yet to come across a similar temple. The workmanship is amazing. There are 3 things I liked in these temples. 1. Toran- quite elaborate. 2. use of fossil stone 3. Images of Sri Parasnath Ji in Salegram stone.
    Do you know Jaisalmer was a big centre of Jain idols? People used to buy Teerthankar’s idol from this town.

      Thanks Arv! I did not know that it was a center for making and buying Thirthankar statues! I can totally see why. Their quality of carvings and stone work is most certainly outstanding.
      You’re totally right about the things that stand out. Certainly the number and workmanship of the Toran is exquisite.
      We heard that there are many more temples around Jaisalmer and maybe take more time to visit them next time.
