Visited on way from Udaipur to Kumbhalgarh. The carving on the marble is breathtakingly beautiful. Amazing design with not a single piece of steel used in the construction and beautifully carved pillars in pristine marble supporting the whole structure. Traveller tips: Non Jains (people who do not follow Jain religion) can only enter between noon to 1730 hrs. Foreign Nationals... More

If you are traveling between Udaipur and Jodhpur then definitely swing past this amazing 14th century temple. Inside are 1,444 carved pillars, all different, but contributing to an awesome space of high domes and symmetrical vestibules. The carvings are intricate and signify the 5 tenants of the Jain religion (non violence, truth, non-stealing, celibacy & non-attachment), with the carvings outside... More

If you are travelling by car between Udaipur and Ajmer or Pushkar in Rajasthan, India using any of the packaged tour program, make sure you take a diversion to Ranakpur to visit this marvelous architectural masterpiece. We did exactly that and was worth the extra drive which was slow, bumpy and cumbersome in bad village roads. You forget all these... More

We visited the temple whilst being driven from Narlai to Udapiur, well worth the visit and combined this with the Kumbhalgarh Fort. Be warned thought that whilst both these sites look close together on the map they are both in the hills ups series of incredibly windy roads and so it really does take a full day to drive the...

This is one of the most jaw-dropping, spectacular and humbling places we have ever visited. Being immersed in this incredible jewel is an experience one cannot forget, surrounded by the most magnificent and beautiful, intricately detailed marble carvings. The mind boggles at the time, effort, skill and dedication it took to create this wonder. We traveled to Udaipur specifically to... More

The temple seems quite out of the way. It felt like we were driving forever and nothing anywhere in site. It was most certainly worth it. The stonework is incredible. The many many columns all look slightly different yet all of them perfect in their own way. The audio guide (included in your ticket) was informative both about the place... More

If you are in Udaipur or My Abu, you should not miss visiting this Temple.... It's worth taking the pain... Photography is allowed against a ticket.... You should obey the rules of this religious please.... The architecture and stone carvings inside is stunning and will make anyone spellbound/speechless....

This Jain temple is situated close to Udaipur and is a must visit. The roads are not too great from either Udaipur or from Jodhpur. The temple is a marvel made of marble. The color of the marble changes every hour. The carvings and sculpture on all the walls are magnificent. The four sides of the sanctum are similar. The... More

In the middle of nowhere, while driving from Pali to Kumbhalgarh or Udaipur, you will come across this huge Marble structure which is a Jain temple of Ranakpur. What an amazing place. Most Jain temples have beautiful architecture (Dilwara in Mt. Abu etc.) but this one is much much better. You can spend hours here appreciating the architecture, construction, size,... More
