Kumbhariya (Known Ancient As Arasaha Or Arasankara ), Now A Non-Descript Hamlet, Situated About A Mile And A Half To The Southeast Of The Famous Holy Tirtha-Town Ambaji (Banaskantha District, Gujarat, India) And About 35 Kms Southeast Of Mt. Abu Was An Important Jaina Site In High Medieval Times. Home To Five Exquisite Jaina Temples And A Sivaita Fane, These Marble Buildings Sacred To The Faithful, Were Built During Thesolanki Period Between The 11Th And Late-13Th Centuries A.D. This Work Also Demonstrates That The Spectacular Interiors Of The Four Jaina Temples At Kumnhariya Are More Ancient Than Those In The Delvada Temples And The Variety And Richness If The Columns And The Celling Equal Or Are On Par With The Delvada Temples On Mt. Abu
