To be honest we are bit bored of Jain temples - yes they are nice, lots of intricate white marble carving and it was on the way. But they are very similar and you have to take your shoes off - after the rat temple we have a special pair of socks we call our "Rat Poo Socks". We have washed them and they are clean but there is definitely virtual rat poo on them.

OK then about Ranakpur. Built in 1439, 29 halls supported by 1444 pillars. Apparantly no two pillars are alike. We did not test this out.

It took 3 hours to get to Ranakpur from Jodhpur. We have noticed something strange. The trucks have moustaches. Still solid.
