Set within the Aravalli hills of southern Rajasthan, Narlai is a small village close to both the famous temples at Ranakpur and the magnificent hill fort of Kumbhalgarh. This is an arid, rugged landscape of forested hills and rocky outcrops making it ideal walking country and there is plenty to see and do. Aside from the large complex at Ranakpur, there are numerous other temples close to Narlai. Two of the most interesting are in neighbouring Ghanerao and include the Muchhal Mahavir Temple, known for its intricate carvings, and the Parashuram Mahadev cave temple, an important local pilgrimage site, reached by a steep stepped climb. The countryside around Narlai also supports a range of wildlife including leopard and, although elusive, numbers have risen steadily over the years with sightings of this wonderful animal becoming increasingly common.
