Very nice Jain Temple

Glad to see Ranakpur Temple of Jain religion. It is very old & very silent place. Please wear whole body covered clothes. Don't wear sleeveless & short clothes. If you wear such clothes you have to buy clothes on rent from temple itself & then you will be allowed into temple.

Neat dressing is needed to visit

Camera is not allowed in the temple, you should be properly dressed and at night lighting of divas is incredible watch.

A monument worth visiting

Jain Temples everywhere are made very artistic but the Ranakpur Jain Temple is fantastic and excellent in terms of the carvings and sculptures, it seemed that the craftsmen had put his complete skills into the design of the temple. For Camera you need to pay fees and then you can take photographs. Many Foreigners were there who were appreciating the sculptures and taking photos of the Temple. The View of the whole temple surrounded by the Mountains is so Photographic that one cannot resist the urge of capturing the ethnic beauty in a Camera.

Magnificent structure with beautiful scenery

It is a must visit place if you are visiting Rajasthan. Do eat the 'Jain Thali' (lunch). It is very cheap and tasty. Photography is allowed here and the place is worth capturing.
