The Ghanerao Castle is situated at village Post Ghanerao, district – Pali. Ranakpur a small village between Jodhpur and Udaipur is popular for its impressive Jain temples made of pure white marble. In addition, a small Sun temple managed by the Udaipur royal family trust also finds a place in this village. Tourist must plan to visit prominent religious spots like the Muchhal Mahavir Temple, Surya Narayan temple and Ranakpur Jain temple.
Standing watch over the small village of Ghanerao is the Ghanerao Rawla (castle). A magnificent showcase of Marble and Red sandstone Rajput Architecture built in 1606 that serves as the home of the royal family who still reside. There is a nostalgic air of past glory and of the royal lifestyle that the Thakurs led. The castle has 17 beautiful rooms, having their own quaint sit outs and verandhas. A recent developing project of the museum is under away, where one can see the old elephant hodas and palkis which were used by the rulers when elephants and horses were the only means of travel.
