Photograph of the Adinatha Temple in Mount Abu from James Burgess' 'Photographs of Architecture and Scenery in Gujarat and Rajputana' taken by Colin Murray in c.1872. Mount Abu is an important place for Jain pilgrimage renowned for the group of Jain temples at Dilwara dating from the Solanki period. The temples are completely built of marble carved with intricate details and represent some of the most perfect examples of the western Indian style. This is a general view of temples, with Parshvanatha Temple in foreground.
