Saturday Snapshot ~ Ranakpur Jain Temple

For Saturday Snapshot, I am sharing few pictures of Ranakpur Jain Temple. A few days back I was going through my old pictures folder and thought to share a few pictures here. I had been to Ranakpur, Rajasthan during our 2010 India Trip. Ranakpur is famous for its Jain temple. It is exquisitely carved and is a destination for many tourists and pilgrims.

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books. It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.

 There are around 1444 pillars in the temple and not two of them are same!

 This design is carved in a single piece of rock.
Isn't it exquisite!

Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!
