Kumbhariya:
(30 km from Danta) the Kumbhariya group of Jain temples dates back to the Solanki period (11th - 13th century). The five temples are dedicated to: Mahavira, Shantinath, Parshvanath, Neminath and Sambhavanath. The temples have a main shrine in the centre of a rectangular courtyard, formed by the series of shrines with 'shikharas', dedicated to Jain 'Tirthankaras'. http://www.palanpuronline.com/Portal/IMAGES/Kumbhariya2.jpg

On each side there is a porch with a balcony, reached by a flight of steps. The quality of workmanship on the marble is excellent and reminds one of the Dilwara Jain temples at Mt. Abu.
