The Jain Temple at Ranakpur is believed to be the most spectacular of all Jain temples in India. The temple is dedicated to Adinatha, the first Tirthankara of Jainism. The temple is built of light-coloured marble and has distinctive domes, shikharas, cupolas and turrets. More than 1444 marble pillars support the temple and exhibit fabulous carvings. All pillars are unique in terms of design and carving. It is believed that it is impossible to count all the pillars.
The most remarkable feature about the temple is that it has a beautiful carving made out of a single rock of marble. The heads of about 108 snakes with innumerable tails have been carved into the stone. The temple has four faces and is a chaumukha. The four faces symbolise the Tirthankara’s conquest of the four directions. The Jain Temple is a must-visit destination among tourist places to visit in Rajasthan.
