Ranakpur is on the way from Jodhpur to Udaipur. The temple was built symmetrically with 4 entrances. Inside there are hundreds of pillars all carved in marble. This temple is a must when you travel in Rajasthan. There are audio sets in different languages but it was not organized well in the temple. Make sure to have long pants and... More

Nestled in the foothills of the Aravalis and in vicinity of a thickly forested area, this is an amazing temple that deserves a visit by tourists coming to the Udaipur and Jodhpur areas. The drive to Ranakpur from Udaipur takes one through small hamlets and a thickly forested area and one has to descend a hill to get to the... More

The temple of Ranakpur though hard to access from Udaipur is a great visit. For those who believe in their gods and religion there is enough motivation, for those who don't the intricate Jain temple design and architecture must do... And they don't disappoint. It is beautifully done and has remarkable details. Must visit. Few tips: cameras are not allowed... More

I fell in love with this temple, such a calming place. I felt that I could've stayed here forever, it was a soothing contrast to the sensory overload that India is!

Situated in the village of Ranakpur, 90 km from Udaipur, the complex of Jain temples is certainly one of the most extraordinary attractions of the entire Rajasthan. Jainism is a religion started in the sixth century (BC) who preaches the absolute nonviolence among all living beings and believes in reincarnation. For them, the passage from one life to the next...

Beautiful sculpture and architecture. An insight into Jain worship. No liquids including water allowed inside so in the warmer months it can be a bit uncomfortable. The audio tour made it more interesting and gave everything a bit more meaning. Although cameras are allowed there is no photography permitted of the main altar or main place of worship.

This is one of the nicest temple I visited in India. In my view, the interior of the temple far surpasses the Taj Mahal.

Chaumukha Mandir (four-faced temple) was dedicated to Adinath, the first Jain Tirthankar («who knows a ford»). Inside the temple there are many of his image in the posture of Buddha. The temple was built in the XV century, made of milky white marble. This incredible piece of art, a complex of 29 rooms, 80 domes and 1,444 columns, each of... More
