Ranakpur Travel Guide

A quaint town in Rajasthan, Ranakpur is a popular pilgrimage site for the Jain community. Nestled away in a secluded valley in the Aravalli mountain range, Ranakpur is situated at a distance of 90 kms from Udaipur. The town is popular for its Jain temples which are known for their grandeur and superb masonry. The Ranakpur temples represent the rich spiritual, cultural and architectural heritage of India. So come and explore these architectural delights yourself and be mesmerised by their charm.

Interestingly, Ranakpur is popular for the grand and exquisite Jain Temple dedicated to the first of the 24 Tirthankars, Rushubdev.

Another interesting fact about the temples in Ranakpur is that during the day owing to the play of light on the columns of the temples, the columns keep changing their colour from golden to pale blue after every hour.
