Sun Temple of Ranakpur { Surya Narayan Temple , Shree Ek-lingi Ji Trust} is a famous Sun Temple. This 13th century temple was rebuilt in 15th century after destruction. Sun temple is built in Nagara style with a delicate ornamented work.

Built from low-grade marble, which has weathered beautifully over the centuries, the exterior of the temple is intricately carved with Surya or the Sun God seated on a chariot drawn by horses. The temple faces east, and has a sanctum topped by a Shikhara in the Nagara style, and an octagonal Mandapa preceding the sanctum. The mandapa has some of the most exquisitely carved pillars and sculpted Toranas

During the drive up to the temple the mountain scenery is worthwhile. Lots of monkeys in the trees. The temple itself is stunning architecture. Foreign visitors pay 200 rupees each and 100 rupees for camera. The audio guide comes as part of this fee and is helpful. No leather to be worn and you must cover up. No short sleeves although to the elbow is fine. After viewing the temple we went to eat at the canteen which is 75 rupees each. The food was extra spicey, which was fine for me, but a little strong for husband! You are seated at tables which are all in a row and the food is brought to you. It is traditional local food and a simple but lovely experience, if our driver had not taken us we would not have known it was there.
Worthwhile visit.

Its an excellent and very important temple in the history of India. Needs more maintenance. It is made of white marble and the location of the temple is excellent with an amphitheatre to seat many people to view the sunset in the mountain behind the temple.
