The incredible C15th Jain temple at Janakpur is one of India's most significant religious buildings. Built of beautifully carved marble over 1,400 pillars (the precise number is claimed to be uncountable) support the building. Fortunately photography is allowed inside the temple with the exception of deities in sacred areas, a rule that is strictly enforced.
