Bhilwara Info

  • State: Rajasthan
  • Famous for/as: Heritage
  • District: Bhilwara
Bhilwara, which is often referred to as the ‘City of Cloth, Culture and Calmness’, is located in the Mewar region in the state of Rajasthan. It is at a distance of about 260 km from Jaipur. Towards the north the district touches the Ajmer district, towards its north-west is the Rajsamand district, towards the south and south-east is the Chittorgarh district and towards its east and east-north is the Bundi & Tonk district.

It is believed that this place was named ‘Bhilwara’ because in ancient times the Bhils lived here. However, the peasants who settled at this place eventually drove them towards the hills and other interior places. At present, there are very few Bhil people living in this area. According to another version, there was a mint at this place where coins were minted. These coins were known as 'Bhiladi'. Hence, this district was named as Bhilwara.

Over time, this place has developed as an industrial town and at present it is known as the Textile City of Rajasthan. At times it is also called the Zoo of Minerals as it has rich deposits of several minerals including mica, soapstone, copper, felspar and quartz, white clay, garnet, beryl and asbestos.

The different fairs and festivals celebrated in this place reveal its rich culture and prosperous tradition. Some of the popular fairs and festivals of Bhilwara include Ganesh Mela, Ramdev Ji Ka Mela, Dhanop Mataji Mela, and Badnor Pashu Mela.

The winter months starting from October to March, is considered as the best time to visit this place. Some of the major tourist attractions in and around Bhilwara include Bijolia, Gangapur, Mandal, Menal Temples, Shahpura and Sheetlamata Temple.

Bijolia is about 85 km from Bhilwara and is popular because of its temples. Between the 11th century and 13th century, this place was the centre of religious activities and hundreds of temples were built. However, very few of them remain today. Some of the popular temples in this place include the Undeshwar Temple, the Mandakini Kund and the Jain Temples.

The Menal temples are at a distance of 76km, while the Sheetlamata temple is at a distance of about 85 km from Bhilwara. Gangapur, which is at a distance of 45 km from the city, is a popular place as it gives an insight to the typical Rajasthani villages.
