  • Superb Jain temple of Ranakpur, the destination of pilgrimages from all parts of India. The visit, which is carried out strictly barefoot, allows one to admire the rich ornamentation of the temple dedicated to Adinath. Drawing complex and gigantic proportions baffles and bewitches. The play of light and shadow created by 1444 sculpted pillars supporting it, during different times of the day, wields a magical charm. The three-story building in marble is placed on a high platform and presents an unusual plant to quadrangle. Bald appearance of the exterior does not prepare the visitor to the incredible explosion of architectural and artistic complexity of the Interior. Upon entering, the vastness of the structure, architectural balance and symmetry will envelop you completely. Transparency acquired by marble is amazing, the grace of the poses of Supreme dancers and the delicacy of the reasons in Kalpavalli, good luck medallions decorated with Creepers, memorable, as the sheer size of the imagination of architects who created this place.

  • Blown away by beauty, and architecture. Truly unbelievable for the time period when it was constructed. Quiet and tranquil and so very unexpected. The Jain Temple does not disappoint. 
  • For a religion so strict on not eating or harming any living creature what did this temple do in its construction? The animals and insects that were destroyed for what? Ok it's beautiful and the carvi...  more »

  • By far the best Jain temple we have seen yet. The monk that explained the temple was very nice and informative. The marble designs are awesome and intricate. This certainly is a must see place. Roads to and from a recent a but challenging. My two little kids enjoyed the place too. Especially when the monk did "ohm" under one of the domes. The plethora of monkeys outside were an additional plus.
  • The uniqueness of the temple is that it is known to be built on hundreds of pillars with beautiful sculptures engraved at every corners possible in the temple. The temple is known to be so famous that even the tourists or god believers are charged extra if they are carrying mobile phones with camera. Against this policy of the temple, we all agreed to deposit our mobiles & camera, so we couldn’t click any pictures. But, we were spellbound by the beauty & architecture of the temple. Amongst all pillars or columns, one pillar was intentionally built at some inclination with the vertical plane. It was informed to us that this particular pillar was intentionally built so as to make everyone believe that it is made by humans & without any help from any sort of machinery equipments
  • Amazing place! Really beautiful curvings, entiant temple and nature... The tickets will cost 200 rs for foreigners and 15 rs for infian people. Also if you want to take a pictures on your mobile, you dhould pay 100 rs. Foreigners also get free audio guide! Must to visit!
  • Adeshwar bhagavan , best architectuur place 500 yrs old , is dine great and Rooms available with good food, evening dinner time before sunset. 150 Rent per room for Jains
  • The Temple is beautifully built. There are 3 more small temple besides the main temple. The Jain Food House has a 'Thali' all-you-can-eat system which offers excellent Jain style food at a very cheap price. The one bad thing about this place is lack of transport facilities from here. Govt. buses come rarily and there is no auto or taxi services. The best way to visit it is using a personal vehicle but the way cuts through hills and valleys so only a very trained driver should be driving.
