Immediately after Kumbhalgarh, we rushed to Ranakpur temple which is about 65kms from Kumbhalgarh having zigzag ride through the mountains with the narrow roads. Ranakpur temples are best known for its carving and designs mostly seen in most of the Jain temples like Delwara in Mt.Abu. It's a good place for design and carving enthusiasts.
3. Ranakpur Jain temple - The Jain temple is 100 kms away from Udaipur and can be covered in one day. The temple has more than 144 towers carved intricately each having a unique design.Places to eat1. 1559AD - Beautiful ambience & delectable food
In morning after darshan we left for Ranakpur Jain Tirth. Its around 35 kms from falna. The speciality of this temple is that its made of 1,444 pillars and when u stand between any 4 pillars we can see all the idols of god(left right front and back). We hired a guide who explained us the history and it took around 2-3 hours to explore whole temple. After that we went Kumbhalgarh Fort which is around 33 kms from Ranakpur.
1 Famous place to visit is Ranakpur jain temple. We had a bike ride till there, the dark, scary roads were the real fun.
We had our lunch on the highway and then headed for Ranakpur.
Ranakpur - Ranakpur is widely known for its magnificent marble Jain temple devoted to Lord Adinath and is a must see. Ranakpur is between Jodhpur and Udaipur, in a valley on the western side of the Aravalli Range. Easily accessed by road, Ranakpur is around 90km north of Udaipur. White marble has been used for the construction of this grand temple. The temple, with its distinctive domes, rises majestically from the slope of a hill. Over 1444 marble pillars, carved in exquisite detail, support the temple, and no two columns are the same. There is one beautiful carving made out of a single marble rock where there are 1008 heads of snakes and numerous tails over the head of Lord ParsvaNatha. One cannot find the end of the tails. The image faces all four cardinal directions. The temple is designed as chaumukha with four faces. The construction of the temple and quadrupled image symbolize the Jain Tirthankara's conquest of the four cardinal directions and hence the cosmos.
