Travelling from Udaipur in the morning, we reached Ranakpur temples just a little before noon. Our cabbie advised us to have the lunch at the Bhojanalaya before we proceeded to the Temples. A simple mess run by a Trust, it serves full Gujarati vegetarian meals for a nominal Rs 50. They serve with so much love and devotion, it nourishes... More

The main temple is full of great sculpture and we had a volunteer guide who took us around (to whom we gave a small token of our appreciation). Short trousers and skirts and... More

This is one of the two finest marble temples of Rajasthan. If you are planning a trip to Southern Rajasthan you must include this temple in itinerary. Although you will have to take a detour to visit this place but it is not far away from Kumbhalgarh. There is a restriction of timing and dress. Mobiles are not allowed but... More

We stopped at the Jain temple at Ranakpur en route from Jodpur to Udaiur and was blown away by it's beauty. From the outside it's interesting but the interior is a gem. The interior carvings are astonishing aNd the space I found very moving. A highlight of my visit to Rajasthan.

The Jain Temple is a wonderful experience if you are prepared. Long sleeves and bare feet (which burned as we approached the entrance. It is a stunning building, a huge display of remarkable marble sculpture, like a wedding cake decoration gone mad. The temple is closely monitored by staff security, nevertheless a serene place set amidst rugged hills. If you... More
