Admire the artistry and architecture of Jain Temples, a collection of holy sites located within the walls of the city's fort. Built between the 12th and 15th centuries CE, the temples feature elegantly carved edifices, whose intricate sandstone exteriors establish patterns that lead inside to the main prayer rooms. The whole temple complex offers the chance to learn more about the Jain community that has created so many of the notable buildings and institutions within the World Heritage-listed city.
