The evening prayers carried out in candle light with two 108 kg bells being played in synchronization is a unique experience for the mind and the body. Many people are surprised to know that the Ranakpur Jain Temple is an environmentally conscious institution and houses a sewage treatment plant.

Dedicated to Lord Adinath
A prominent pilgrimage, the temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna whose central idol has been carved out of a single block of marble. It is said that Goswami Dev fled from Mathura to escape Aurangzeb with this idol to Udaipur. However, his chariot got stuck in Nathdwara (48kms away). He took it as divine will and decided to consecrate it on the spot.
The temple town of Nathdwara also offers some great street food in the narrow alleys leading upto the shrine. In addition, Nathdwara is also the home of the Pichhwai paintings.
Plan your visit to Nathdwara keeping in mind the 6 darshan times scattered throughout the day. Devotees throng to this deity during most festivals such as Holi, Deepawali etc. but the maximum influx is during Janamashtami.
