Introducing Ranakpur
Ranakpur is a small township that lies some 63 kilometres from Udaipur city. The place was named after Rana Kumbha who offered his land for the construction of a great Jain temple. The place is famous throughout the state for a number of splendid Jain temples, built during the medieval times. It is one of the five main pilgrimage sites for the Jains.

Jain Temples at Ranakpur
Ranakpur is famous for several religious shrines of Jains located here. The Jain Temples are the key attractions and every year thousands of tourists reach the place, to pay homage. The basement over which these temples stand, occupies about 48,000 square feet of area. Apart from the main shrine there are three other subsidiary ones. The place features as many as 24 halls with some 1,444 columns - four hundred where the shrines stand. The main temple is dedicated to Adinath and is called Chaumukh. The halls are topped with domes. One interesting fact about the columns is that none of them match perfectly. There is an assembly hall with two large bells weighing about hundred kilograms.
