Also you missed the simple but tasty food at Ranakpur Temple. At Rs. 50 or 60 person for unlimited thali, food cannot be better than that.

Thanks,
Thanks Jignesh for the clarification.

We were late to have got lunch there

We did not go to Ambaji Temple since we have to cross into Gujarat and we will have to pay the tax for the bus, which is quite substantial.
