I didn't know what to expect since my had done the research to decide to stop here, but the temple was stunning. Beautiful, intricately carved white marble columns and domes as far as you can see.

It was the first Jain temple we visited. The carvings of the temple are amazing. There are 1444 pillars in the temple and none of them are similar.

It was a disappointing to see that temple administration is demanding enty fee from guests of other origion except Indians in name of AUDIO GUIDE CHARGES. Is a tourist refuse to take AUDIO GUIDE than he or she is not allowded to enter the temple.

Prior to seeing the Taj Mahal ( I know, pretty mainstream) the most impressive thing I saw in india and up there with anything I've seen in my life. Yep Small entry fee. You might need to join a tour or take a taxi between Udaipur, Jodphur or Jaipur, it's worth it. We had a car.

The temple at Ranakpur is extremely peaceful and quiet. The atmosphere is soothing and relaxing, and the premises are very well maintained.

Unbelievable carvings. One of the best temples to visit in India. The entire region was green and cool after coming from western Rajasthan.
