Udai Mandir

Udai Mandir, Jodhpur

Built on a raised platform on the outskirts of Jodhpur, Udai Mandir is amongst the finest examples of architectural brilliance. The temple stands on 102 pillars at a raised platform. Admiration for the structure starts rising from the entrance gate itself, as it is completely carved out of sandstone. The use of sandstone for decoration from the entrance gate, goes high to the upper part of the temple.

On entering inside, beautiful wall paintings of Nath Yogis performing different yoga asanas, made up of gold is most likely to catch the interests of an art and architecture lover. On shifting the focus from these wonderful paintings, one can spot the main hall of the temple, which is known as the ‘Garba Griha’. The upper portion of it has been kept covered with cloth, while its surroundings are occupied by pots of gold. There also lies a massive door, which is entirely made up of sandalwood.

Exteriors of Udai Mandir boast of gold polishing, which in the current form has still not lost its original sheen. Flaunting such detailing, Udai Mandir has managed to prove itself as one of the top tourist attractions in Jodhpur, every passing year.
