  Chaumukha temple
by duke0123

There are a lot of temples in India but the Ranakpur complex where you can see four Jain temples is worth a visit. The main temple, the Chaumukha temple, is the most beautiful one.

This marble temple is one of the biggest and most important temples in India. This three storey high temple is also called the Four Faced Temple because of the four-faced image of Adinath in the central sanctuary.

Of course a visit to this temple is very interesting but the high point can be a meal at the dharamsala which is also on this complex. In the dining hall you can have a delicious thali. The only condition is you have to eat the food with your right hand, but that makes it more interesting.

Directions: Ranakpur is located in the valley of the Aravalli Range and it is 60 km north of Udaipur.
