Ranakpur: Le temple d'Adinath (Jaina-Tempel)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Le temple d'Adinath ou Chaumukh se dissimule dans un vallon de la chaîne des Arawalli.

La religion Jainiste ne permet pas de nuire aux êtres vivants, même les plus petits : le port d'un voile sur la bouche permet, par exemple, d'éviter d'avaler un insecte. Le Jain pratique la non-violence, le jeûne et la mortification et aspire à la perfection en renonçant au matériel
