Author:Bharadwaj, S.
Enumeration:Vol. 12 Issue no. 2; March 1959, p. 32-34
Abstract:Jainism asserted itself in the region of Mount Abu around 1032 CE, interrupted by a phase of Shaivism in the 14th-15th centuries. Among the temples of Mount Abu are 5 shrines of the Dilwara group, and the temples of Vimalasah (1032), Vastupal and Tejpal (1231), Adinatha, Chaumukha (four-faced) shrine of Parsvanatha, and remains of old Hindu temples. The article describes the architecture and sculptures of these shrines. Achalgarh, 4 miles from Abu and the old stronghold of the Paramara kings, has ruins of shrines dedicated to Hindu deities.
