The Adinath Temple in Ranakpur Jain Mandir complex is can be said India's best Jain mandir in terms of the size and wonderful detailing stone carvings, better than Dilwara temple of Mt. Abu in my opinion..

Ranakpur Jain temple or Chaturmukha Dharana Vihara is a Jain temple at Ranakpur is dedicated to Tirthankara Rishabhanatha.[1] The temple is located in a village of Ranakpur near Sadri town in the Pali district of Rajasthan.

Darna Shah, a local Jain businessperson, started construction of the temple in the 15th century following a divine vision. The temple honors Adinath, the first Tirthankar of the present half-cycle (avasarpiṇī) according to Jain cosmology.

The construction is well documented in a 1436 CE copper-plate record, inscriptions in the temple and a Sanskrit text Soma-Saubhagya Kavya. Inspired by a dream of a celestial vehicle, Dharna Shah,a Porwal from Ghanerao, commenced its construction in 1389, under the patronage of Rana Kumbha, then ruler of Mewar. The architect who oversaw the project was named Deepaka. There is an inscription on a pillar near the main shrine stating that in 1439 Deepaka, an architect, constructed the temple at the direction of Dharanka, a devoted Jain. When the ground floor was completed, Acharya Soma Sundar Suri of Tapa Gaccha supervised the ceremonies, which are described in Soma-Saubhagya Kavya. The construction continued until 1458 CE. However, according to the audio guide provided to visitors to the site, construction lasted fifty years (and involved 2785 workers). Another source reports that construction continued until 1496, fifty years from 1446. The town of Ranakpur and the temple are named after the provincial ruler monarch, Rana Kumbha who supported the construction of the temple

This was an excellent piece of artistry on marble. This ancient Jain Temple has no entrance fee but visitors wanting to carry mobiles/cameras need to pay Rs 100 but it is worth it. There is a locker provision at Rs 10 only which we found very useful. We had to remove footwear at the entrance however it was a pleasure walking bare feet on the marble flooring. Very serine and calm inside, the audio guide is a must to understand the sculptures and motifs.

Complex, intricate, unfortunately very crowded. Monks try and anoint you and coerce a donation. Should not be missed.

This wonderful temple has become a tourist Mecca resulting in a queue for everything and little opportunity to enjoy this unique and wonderful temple
Perhaps better out of season?
