Ranakpur is situated in a beautiful valley on the western side of the Aravalli Mountain Range on the bank of Maghai River. It is a small township may be considered a village of Desuri Tehsil, Sadri Town of Pali District of Rajsthan, about 90 Km away from Udaipur and 160 Km from Jodhpur. Falna is the nearest Railway Staion just 35 Km away from Ranakpur, which is also famous for its Jain Golden Temple and Roads are very good. This is the most visited destination of Pali due to its Famous Adinath Jain Temple which is quite spectacular, and a Sun Temple managed by the Royal Custodian Of Udaipur and one may find the monkeys in a quite large numbers.

This temple is dedicated to Tirthankar Adinath, the first Thirthankar and founder of Jain Religion. The magnificent Marble temple whose architectural style is Maru-Gurjara a great understanding of Rajasthani craftsmanship, made Ranakpur a great attraction for Jain Pilgrim and foreign visitors. Architecture and carving is almost similar to the ancient Mirpur Jain temple of Mirpur Rajasthan. Ranakpur Temples are acclaimed world-wide for their intricate and superb architectural style.

Ranakpur Jain Temple

Ranakpur is famous for its Jain Temple. Situated 91 km from Udaipur in the state of Rajasthan. Located in a valley on the western side of Aravalli Range. A 2 hours 30 minutes drive from Udaipur will take you to Ranakpur. Constructed in the 15 th Century. The temple, made of marble, is an architectural marvel. It is designed as 'Chau mukha ' - with four faces. The stone carving work of Ranakpur, in my opinion, is more attractive than that of Dilwara. The temple authority run Dharmasala and excellent Canteen where we enjoyed marvelous veg. Lunch. While returning from Ranakpur you may also visit Kumbhalgarh, review of which follows.
