Things to do in Ranakpur

Ranakpur is a captivating village which is located between the cities of Jodhpur and Udaipur. It lies in the Pali district of Rajasthan and is known for the spectacular range of Jain temples that can be found here. Ranakpur is a pilgrim destination which is indispensable in the itinerary of a tourist who is on his pilgrim tour of north India.

This charming village has derived its name after Rana Kumbha. Well-known for some excellently carved 15th century Jain temples in amber stone, Ranakpur is one of the five holiest places of the Jains and flaunts outstanding natural beauty. Dharna Sah, who happened to be a Jain businessman, approached Rana Kumbha when he had the vision of his great temple to request a portion of land for its construction. The magnificent Jain temples were built during the rule of the open-minded and gifted monarch Rana Kumbha during the 15th century. The basement of the complex covers 48,000 sq. feet area and features four additional shrines, twenty four pillared halls and domes supported by more than four hundred columns. There are 1,444 columns and all of them are intricately carved with different appearance. The inventively engraved nymphs playing the flute in various dance positions at an elevation of 45 feet makes for an absorbing sight.
