Admire the artistry and architecture of Jain Temples, a collection of holy sites located within the walls of the city's fort. Built between the 12th and 15th centuries CE, the temples feature elegantly carved edifices, whose intricate sandstone exteriors establish patterns that lead inside to the main prayer rooms. The whole temple complex offers the chance to learn more about the Jain community that has created so many of the notable buildings and institutions within the World Heritage-listed city. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Jaisalmer trip simple and quick.

  • Apart from the fabulous architecture, within the temples Jain exudes an Holy air of much respect. The silence is basic, clean and immaculate. The priests, or guardians of the temple are accessible, and allow you to take pictures in Exchange for an offering. In Exchange, they give away pure sandalwood incense. An enriching experience!

  • 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.
