📍Ranakpur, India: While in Rajasthan, we visited the #Chaumukha Jain Temple in #Ranakpur, one of the 5 most important temples in #Jainism. It was built in the 15th century, is entirely carved from white marble, and has no complete walls, allowing sunlight to flood its tranquil space.

📍Ranakpur, India | Trailokyadeepak Jain Shwetamber Temple || • built in 14th century AD, this Jain temple is dedicated to the 1st Tirthankar Shri Adinathji ✨ •The Jain religion is one based on 5 great tenets: Ahimsa (non-violence), Satya (truth), Achaurya (non-stealing), Brahmacharya (celibacy/chastity) and Aparigraha (non-attachment/non-possession) 🙌🏼 •I think the world would be better off if it followed a lot of what the Jains follow. 🤔 •They don't believe you should be attached to any place or stay in any one place for too long....bingo! 🙋🏼 •I didn't quite understand why menstruating women weren't allowed to enter the temple. That's a thing I can't get behind. 🙅🏼 •Jains are vegetarians, and additionally don't eat anything that grows underground (onions, garlic,etc.) 💁🏼•Jains believe that every organism on earth has the same right to exist, be it the tiniest microbe to the largest animal 👍🏼 #TrailokyadeepakJainShwetamberTemple #RanakpurTemple #Ranakpur #Rajasthan #India #temple #svikkicantstayput #wanderlust #explore #travel
