RANAKPUR - THE SUN TEMPLE

This is yet another sweet poem in white marble lying in the vicinity of Jain temples of Udaipur, reputed world over as the priceless immortal sculptural marvel which neither age has withered nor agnosticism scraped of its exterior or interior splendour. Though surrounded by Jain Mandir - Chaumukh with its 144 pillars of unusual imposing immensity and inexplicable sculptural beauty, trying to eclipse this shrine's indescribable sparkle and ethereal polish, it cannot, nor has not succeeded in its attempt. Could the solar eclipse for ever conceal the ineffable splendour of Surya Bhagawan? If the visitors enter into the innermost part, Surya Bhagawan's unexcelled excellence fills the eyes and lifts the souls to transporting them to Surya mandal to offer obeisance due. Such is the architectural magnificence and sculptural eminence of this shrine. Just as every temple in Rajasthan is a single cellar with spacious hall in its fore and broad courtyards around, this one is possessing all the essential parts and what is more, it is exercising a tantalising effect on the visitors by the play of light and shade, when the Sun Himself illumines it with his smiling rays.

It is worth an indispensable visit and recalls unending series of visits, if memory is in sound condition. It lies in Ranakpur, 98 km off Udaipur, accessible by four wheelers.
