The valley of Aravali range near Udaipur is spectacularly beautiful after the monsoon and the winter season followed by it makes it a wonderful destination to walk around at our own pace and not only explore the serene beauty of nature but also appreciate and enjoy the rich heritage of our beautiful country. It also offers very diversified flora and fauna.
The Aravali Range literally meaning ‘line of peaks’ is a range of mountains in western India running approximately 692 km in a northeastern direction across Indian states of Gujarat,Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi.
The Aravali ranges are the oldest fold mountains in India. The northern end of the range continues as isolated hills and rocky ridges into Haryana state, ending in Delhi. The famous Delhi Ridge is the last leg of the Aravali Range, which traverses through South Delhi and terminates into Central Delhi where Raisina hill is its last extension. It is one of the world’s oldest mountain ranges. It dates back to a pre-Indian sub continental collision with the mainland Eurasian Plate.
Ranakpur is widely known for its marble Jain temple and it is said to be the most spectacular of the Jain temples. There is also a small Sun temple which is managed by the Udaipur royal family trust.
Local legend has it that Dharma Shah, a local Jain businessperson, started construction of the temple in the 15th century following a divine vision. The temple honors Adinath, the first Tirthankar and founder of the Jain religion. The town of Ranakpur and the temple are named after the provincial ruler monarch, Rana Kumbha who supported the construction of the temple
