Hi JM :)

I admire your skill in taking photos. You have brought out very clearly and distinctly the exquisite carvings. The carvings are absolutely fantastic and I wonder at the craftsmen who did this very admirable job.

This Jain temple, I understand is made of marbles and I thought initially it was made of rock. These Indian craftsment will compare with the best in the world and this amazing construction is as good as any good looking European building.

In fact this temple is one among the 77 monuments selected to compete for the 7 wonders of the world.

The Temple, about 500 years old, is loacated in the beautiful Aravally range of mountains and looks very charming.

I thoroughly enjoyed this post and many thanks for the same.

I also thank you for the lovely comment on my post.

SEASONS GREETINGS!

we'd be honored if you visit pakistan (Indus civilization), and there's a plenty to be photographed as pakistan severely lacks passionate 'native' travelers. people of Pakistan rarely are inclined towards discovering themselves.

humble regards!
