  • The workmanship is amazing, to think all of this was done by hand. We went on a day when it wasn't crowded so had a lovely peaceful feeling along with all the beautiful stone work.  more »

  • Splendid. This Jain temple is perfect example of mixing of cultures. Believed to have been made by Jain traders this is a masterpiece of art and architecture. Camera is allowed after payment and it's worth it. Audio tour is also available. The interiors of temple would delight you . The beautiful toranas(gateways) , highly decorated halls. There are group of interconnected temples. The carving of Jain tirthankaras is also magnificent. The place is located within walls of Jaisalmer fort and must visit if you want to treat your eyes with masterpiece.
  • After visiting Ranakpur it's just an average place. Quick to be visited dont know if entrance is mandatory because dont know if its really worth it or not. Still its beautiful
  • The entry people were very rude 😤. They said the temples are now privately owned and not a government facility so they could do what they wanted. Because of this I didn't go in. It's a shame to have people like this working in such spots.
  • Nice temple.best architecture.ticket is 30rs.for mobile 60rs.otherwise submit mobiles to counter.u can shoot/photo here.come by walk from fort and then go to Patwaro ki haweli by walk.u will see desert galliyan
  • Mind blowing architecture of the temple.
