A beautiful confluence of nature and culture.
It is primarily a religious and cultural destination with Temples being the major attractions. Other than that, there's little to explore.
Ranakpur is a popular destination for Jain pilgrims. It is an ideal destination for history lovers and spiritual seekers. The famous Adinath temple is nothing short of an architectural marvel with an interesting history associated with it.
