When I was studying Engineering, We were taught about redundancy in every design, that is when a critical component or member of a design fails, another one(s) take(s) the load, and the collapse of the system is avoided. However, how would you feel about designing a building with 1400 + pillars, with no redundancy that is if one pillar collapses, the whole building comes down ( As told by Sadguru in one of his lectures). That is ladies and gentlemen Depa or Depak the chief architect of Ranakpur Jain Temple for you. To me, Ranakpur Jain temple seems to be a meeting place of the eccentric people. Depa, who would choose to build the projects of his choice only, Bhama Shah the Jain Seth, who spent all his wealth to build this temple.
