A true architectural wonder in the desert, Udai Mandir is situated on a raised platform in the sandy city of Jodhpur. Flaunting a front gate of sandstone, the design and layout of the Udai Mandir ooze out architectural brilliance. The structure of this popular attraction in Jodhpur is supported by more than 100 pillars. Once inside the temple, visitors are likely to come across an inner sanctum, which is traditionally known as the Garba Griha. Surrounded by gold pots, the Garba Griha is an eye catcher and is generally kept covered in a piece of cloth. Adding to the beauty of the inner sanctum are its elegant doors which are made up of Sandalwood.
Besides the sanctum, the interiors of Udai Mandir speaks highly of the beautiful wall paintings of around 84 Yogasanas. Gold paintings of Nath Yogis inside the temple complex are also a delight to watch.
