MOUNT ABU
The Fount of Indian Culture

TEJPAL TEMPLE

Another superb specimen of sculptural art lying adjacent is called Tejpal Mandir, built in 1231 by two brothers, called Vastupal and Tejpal, the ministers under Raja Vira Dhavala, an illustrious ruler of Gujarat. Though it shares many characteristic features of the Vimal Vashi's temple, it reveals a greater degree of craftsmanship and technical progress. The most remarkable feature of the temple that strikes the eye of the viewers is the marble pendant that adorns the dome of the porch. It is hanging from the ceiling like a cluster of lotuses semi-open, whose cups are so finely wrought that they appear to be almost transparent. In the principal cell is installed the image of Neminath, the 22nd Jain Tirthankar. The courtyard contains 48 cells, each housing a Tirthankar. The elephant Gallery akin to one in Vimal Vasahi temple is embellished with a screen noted for its pierced stone trellises of un-surpassing beauty. This patron deserves unqualified praise for inextinguishable passion for perfection; for, he promised to the carvers rewards in silver and gold equal to the weight of marble filings. And he did.
