about luna vasahi temple

Devoted to Lord Neminath,  Luna Vasahi Temple promises to hold your attention with its architectural brilliance. Built centuries ago in 1230 by Vastupal and Tejpal, the Porwad brothers who were ministers during the reign of King Virdhaval, the temple still stands tall with its religious importance and sheer beauty. The entire temple showcases intricate and delicate marble work which is almost transparent at some places. 

The interiors are equally breathtaking with a main hall featuring a central dome which has a many layered lotus flower hanging from it. Then there is a circular band which consists of 72 images of Tirthankars in a sitting posture. Beneath this carving, there is another circle which has 360 images of Jain Monks. The temple has elephant cells or Hathishala which features 10 exquisite marble elephants which are neatly polished as well as realistically modelled. It is said that it took around 15 years to construct Luna Vashi temple and no wonder, one look at this and you cannot help yourself but admire the architectural splendour that symbolises this temple.
