Discover one of the most important Jain temples in the world, and one of the most beautiful religious buildings in all of India. Explore the delights of Ranakpur on this day trip from Udaipur.
After being picked up from your hotel in Udaipur, you'll begin your excursion, heading north to the Rajasthani village of Ranakpur.
Throughout your journey, enjoy panoramic views of the countryside and tiny towns of northern India as you pass by in your comfortable air-conditioned vehicle. After a little over two hours, you'll arrive in rural Ranakpur, widely known for its spectacular temples.
Learn about the most important details of the iconic Ranakpur Jain Temple thanks to the fascinating explanations of your expert local English-speaking guide. The beautiful sanctuary, dedicated to the Tirthankara, or spiritual teacher Rishabhanatha, is one of the most sacred places in the world for Jains.
Despite having been built in the 15th century, the building remains completely intact, as in Jainism it is forbidden to keep damaged sculptures inside temples. The magnificent holy site is constructed of exquisitely carved pale-coloured marble and supported by 1444 pillars, no two of which are the same.
Having explored all the corners of the beautiful Jain Temple, you'll set off back to Udaipur, where you'll be returned to your hotel.
