Continuing my series of picture diaries from my Rajasthan vacation
At the Jain Temple at Ranakpur we got our first sight of Jain nuns. They are very distinctive: they cover their mouths and carry around mops to sweep away animal life from their paths so as not to kill it. They believe all living things souls are diving, that there is no one supreme deity. The temple carvings were superb, ornate ceilings, intricate pillars, the works.
