HISTORY & HERITAGE
Contrary to popular belief, the art of marble carving was known to Indians and widely prevalent even before the rise of the Mughals in the country. Most of the temples in India especially in the North have lot of carved marble patterns either partially or entirely on walls and ceilings. The frames of doors and windows in the temples used to be carved out of marbles with floral patterns or with other motifs and elaborate designs. Some of the finest marble carvings can be seen carved aesthetically in the Dilwara Jain temples in Mount Abu which is situated in Rajasthan. This art has since grown to a great extent and become an integral part of the cultural heritage of India.
