Ranakpur is a tiny little town in the state of Rajasthan, but its glory is no less than the historical reign of Mewar itself. Ranakpur was one of the most prominent places for the people of that time and continues to be so till present. It was under the kingdom of Rana Kumbha who was a very brave, kind and religious. It was during his reign that Jainism got popularity and he became one of the most prominent figures by providing aids and resources to build Jain Temples in Ranakpur. The masterpiece of 15th century, Ranakpur Jain Temple, which stands till date, was built with his support.
Ranakpur Adinath Jain temple, which is also known as Chaturmukha Jain Temple, is one of the most magnificent monuments in the country. It is entirely made up of the white marble and is famous for its intricate carvings that adorn the walls, pillars and ceilings. The most amazing fact is that each piece of carving is unique and among 1444 pillars no two have same design. Another interesting fact is that it has four entrances which have been built in similarity to each other; these represent the four directions Jainism has spread out.
