Where to stay in Ranakpur

Just a few hotels lie in Ranakpur proper, since most visitors opt to take day trips to the impressive Jain temples. What you will find here tends towards the luxury side of things, with modern takes on traditional Rajasthani architecture, fine-dining restaurants, and well-maintained grounds. Jodhpur to the north, and Udaipur to the south offer a greater variety of accommodations, with rail options from the former and bus services from the latter getting you to Ranakpur.

  • Beautiful Jain Temple in India. Everything is made out of marble, and it is astonishing to see. But there are rules in place. As this is a religious site, dress conservatively, or you will be forced to wear rented pyjama pants, which I do not think are cleaned regularly. Also, menstruating women are not supposed to enter the temple, but they don't check for that. But please be respectful, and quiet, when exploring this beautiful site in India
  • I'm a bit biased about this temple because the architect comes a neighbouring village, but it is certainly one of the most beautiful temples in India. It is also clean and well-maintained. The last time we visited, we discovered that some of the priests had picked up French just by talking to the tourists. By the way, the temple refectory serves the best jain meals (closes before sunset).
  • One of the most beautiful temple in India. Awesome view Great location Beautiful artwork Lush green Good food Good rooms
  • This is a breathtaking exquisite astounding magnificently built temple.....you tend to run out of every possible adjective in attempting to describe this place. This is place tells you a beautiful story of the past through each carving.....one has to spend a lot of time in absorbing what this place has to offer.
  • with no doubt one of the highlights of India. Totally recommend visiting Ranakpur just for this amazing temple, the best in the country with the one in Delhi from my point of view. The entrance aint expensive, but they will charge you for all audio-guides and for the cameras (they gonna check if you have your phone with you so what i recommend is hiding it in between the tickets or the map ;)). I consider it quite stupid charging you for no-flash pictures, they can just charge you more for the tickets we are gonna pay it anyways. The place is just sublime, the level of detail is outstanding.
