Discover Delwara, Rajasthan
The colourful village of Delwara is nicknamed the ‘Town of The Gods’ as it has an incredibly high density of temples. There are almost 2 to 3 temples in every street! Delwara was once home to over 1,000 temples, of which 400 were Jain Mandir Temples.
Temples aside, the Indra Kund stepwell with beautiful carvings and Audhi, an old hunting tower on Kantya Hill with panoramic views, are well worth a visit. If you want a glimpse of authentic small-town Rajasthan life without the throngs of visitors, then Delwara is the place for you.
