Emotion behind it:

Stories of the old Part 3 is Inspired by the beautiful Ranakpur Temple located in Pali district of Rajasthan in western India. Tucked away in the forests of Aravalli hills, comes a place of magnificence in the form of this 15 th century Jain Temple of Ranakpur. Featuring intricate designs akin to a fine piece of embroidered cloth, this temple stands as one of the most brilliant architectural monuments on the Indian subcontinent. Besides, the Ranakpur Temple is also the largest and most significant places of worship for the Jains.

Historic Significance

According to a Sanskrit text by the name Soma-Saubhagya Kavya and a copper-plate inscription discovered within the temple complex, this temple dates back to the early fifteenth century. An architectural marvel in its own right, the Ranakpur Temple came from Dhanna Shah, a Porwal from Ghanerao, under the patronage of Rana Kumbha, the then ruler of Mewar. Legend has it that Dhanna Shah, a prosperous merchant and prominent minister in the court of Rana Kumbha, one night dreamt about a celestial vehicle. The next morning, he woke to a burning determination of building a temple in the shape of a vehicle, to give expression to his vision. Without further ado, he shared his ambition with the king and pleaded for his assistance. Delighted by the concept, the king assented to the request but with a condition that the structure be named after the monarch. It was somewhere around 1394 C.E. that the merchant initiated his search for someone who would aid him in realizing this vision in stone. He finally gathered courage and sought help of an eccentric ascetic, Deepak, who after days of meditation, turned up with a sketch so flawless and divine as if it was drawn by the Gods themselves. After about 50 years of tremendous labor put in by thousands of craftsmen and sculptors, the Ranakpur Temple came into being.

Incredible architecture

The massive temple structure, raised entirely in softly colored marble, stands atop a base of subterranean vaults, sprawling in an area of over 48,000 square feet. Entering into the temple complex, it is difficult for someone to not be mesmerized by the vivacity and scale of its designs. The moment you step into Ranakpur Temple is the very moment you begin unraveling its veritable splendor; rays of light steal through carved pillar-corridor, emanating their warmth into the cups of ornate domes overhead. Encompassed by this temple complex are the Parshavanath Temple, Chaumukha Temple, Surya Temple and the Amba Mata Temple. The Chaumukha Temple is the principal temple that houses the main deity, Lord Adinath, the first Jain Tirthankara.
