Vimal Vasahi Temple

Mount Abu is famous for its extraordinary collection of Jain temples, which are surrounded by giant mango trees. Built in the 11C, the temple of Vimal Vasahi boasts a breathtaking array of carvings, notably in the dance pavilion. The delicate work is explained by a local tradition: it's said that the sculptors were paid according to the weight of the dust they collected, which encouraged them to produce ever more intricate carvings!
