Ranakpur, India

5 Feb

The Jain temple at Ranakpur, located 60 miles north of Udaipur in rural Rajasthan, is one of the most spectacular sights in India. Constructed in 1439, the temple consists of 29 halls and 1444 unique, ornate pillars carved from white marble. Throughout the temple are exquisitely carved idols and statues. The precision and detail of the carvings is mind blowing, as every single square inch of the complex is nothing short of art.
