India is everything and more we hoped it would be!!!

Day 5 in our adventures across this magical and majestic country saw us go from Jodhpur to Udaipur - with a stop in Ranakpur in between.

The Chaumukha temple in Ranakpur is regarded as the most beautiful of all the Jain temples in India. And we are sooo glad we were able to see it!

What a stunning complex!

Built in 1439, it was truly impressive to walk around the 29 halls and see all of the hand-carved creations. So beautiful!

After that, we had lunch at lovely Maharani Bagh Orchard, a 19th century retreat set in a mango grove, owned by a maharani of Jodhpur.

And, finally, we made our way to Udipur, where we took a tour and had dinner in the legendary Lake Palace. Built in the 1700s, it used to be the home of royalty. It has since been used in the 007 film Octopussy and Brad & Angelina even stayed there a few years ago.

We can't stress how enamored we are with this whole experience! And the people of India are truly so lovely. So warm. So happy!

So many smiles!

Despite any hardships, the people of India are not hardened!
