The Hugeness of Ranakpur Temple
Ranakpur is a village located in Desuri tehsil near Sadri town in the Pali district of Rajasthan in western India. It is located between Jodhpur and Udaipur, in a valley on the western side of the Aravalli Range.
Light colored marble has been used for the construction of this grand
temple which occupies an area of approximately 60 x 62 meters. The
temple, with its distinctive domes, shikhara, turrets and cupolas
rises majestically from the slope of a hill. Over 1444 marble pillars,
carved in exquisite detail, support the temple. The pillars are all
differently carved and no two pillars are the same. It is also said
that it is impossible to count the pillars. Also all the statues face
one or the other statue. There is one beautiful carving made out of a
single marble rock where there 108 heads of snakes and numerous tails.
One cannot find the end of the tails. The image faces all four
cardinal directions. In the axis of the main entrance, on the western
side, is the largest image.
The temple is designed as chaumukha—with four faces. The construction of the temple and quadrupled image symbolize the Tirthankara's conquest of the four cardinal directions and hence the cosmos.
