Jain temples are few and far between and Ranakpur is noted by some people as being the most beautiful.

The temple is beautiful from the outside but the four of us were amazed by the beauty on the inside. The entire temple is carved from white marble and over 1,444 pillars hold up the ceiling. All of the carvings were intricate in detail, portraying people, elephants, flowers, and geometrical patterns.
