This picture has been contributed by Dr. Manmohan Singh, Professor of Neurosurgery at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. It shows the dome of the Jain temple, located at Ranakpur, a village in Desuri tehsil near Sadri town in Pali district of Rajasthan in western India. It is located between Jodhpur and Udaipur.

It shows the exquisite architecture of ancient India, which everyone has to see to believe. The temple was constructed in the 15th century. The temple was built in the honour of Adinath, the first Tirthankar of the present half-cycle (avasarpiṇī), according to Jain cosmology. The town of Ranakpur and the temple are named after the monarch, Rana Kumbha, the ruler of Mewar, in whose reign the major portion of the temple was constructed.

The temple has 24 pillared halls and 80 domes with 400 columns supporting them. The brackets that link the upper and lower parts of the domes have sculptures of deities. In the temple, at a height of 45 feet, nymphs, in various dance postures playing the flute, are engraved in the dome. An amazing feature of these columns is that they change their colour from golden to pale blue after every hour during the day. It is due to the intricacy of the structure that the temple took approximately 65 years to complete.

The Ranakpur temple is an architectural marvel that brings forth a spiritual serenity that is really unparalleled and is a treat to the senses. Considered as one of the most spectacular buildings in the world, the Ranakpur temple is truly a jewel that one must visit. The picture was shot with the Canon 6D camera and the 24-105mm f/4 L Lens. Exif data of the picture is ISO 1000, 40mm, and 1/40 sec.
