Group of fascinating Jain temples that dates back to 11th and 13th century, the Kumbhariya group of Jain temples displays amazing structural designs. These temples are dedicated to the five theerthankkaras of the jain religion namely Mahavira, Parshvanath, Neminath Shantinath and Sambhavanath. Legend has it that Mata Ambaji had asked Seth Vimal Shah to erect Jain temples and after its construction he overlooked the holy intervention of the goddess. Being furious about this act of defiance, goddess destroyed the entire temple except the five temples that exist today.

The main shrine is constructed in the center of a rectangular courtyard. Beautiful shiksaras, balconies with porches are the characteristic features of the temples. Excellent craftsmanship and artistic caliber marks the temple structure and in style it replicates the dilwara temples of Mount Abu. These temples serve as a standing testimony to the architectural elegance of the medieval period and are considered as the precious remnants of the Jain culture and art of a bygone era.
