On the outskirts of the sandy city of Jaisalmer, lies the ancient city of Lodurva which is renowned as a prominent Jain pilgrim center all across the country. Once the capital of Bhatti Rajputs, the city is now left with the ruins of Jain temples, which are counted amongst the popular tourist attractions in Rajasthan.
Dedicated to the twenty third Tirthankar Parsvnath, the Lodurav Jain temple is an absolute splendor of bright yellow sandstones. Though in ruins, one can easily find the pictures of Lord Parsvnath carved all along the walls of the temple.
Right at the entrance, one can find beautiful arches that dominate the whole front portion of the Jain temple. Clearly, a typical example of the Dilwara style of temple architecture, the Lodurva temple is a true reminder of the city’s former glory.
