RANAKPUR Festival 

Situated about 100 kilometres southeast of Pali and about 9 kilometres south of Sadri town is a cluster of temples - one of the five main holy places of the Jains. Although over 500 years old, these exquisitely designed temples are well-preserved and in almost perfect condition. The type of architecture employed here is Maru-Gurjara. It gives an insight into understanding of structures and refined skills of Rajasthani craftsmen of the bygone era. The main temple, with its distinctive domes, shikhara, turrets and cupolas rises majestically from the slope of a hill. Over 1444 marble pillars, carved in exquisite detail, support it.
