City full of water even though being in Rajasthan

This city is full of water bodies. Even though we associate Rajasthan state to be devoid of water but Banswara has lots of water bodies and is lush and green place. This place also has got industrial activity in shape of textile manufacturing companies situated at the outskirts of the city giving employment to the persons living in this city. The city has got many places to visit like Mahi Dam, Kagdi, Tripura Sundri temple. Now the road from Indore is also very nice which took us only 4 hours by road to reach Banswara from Indore Airport.

Banswara Overview

Sprawling over an area of 5,307 sq km, Banswara is located in the southern part of the state of Rajasthan. Formerly a princely state, founded by Maharawal Jagmal Singh, the destination is situated at an average elevation of 302 metres. It derives its name from the word ‘bans’ or bamboo forests, which are abundant in the area.

The region is surrounded by Udaipur District in the north, Chittorgarh District in the north-east, Madhya Pradesh in the east and south-east, Gujarat in the south-west and Dungarpur District in the west. Owing to the presence of several islands in River Mahi, which passes through the destination, the place is also known as City of Hundred Islands.

This princely state is the eastern part of Vagad region, which was ruled by the Maharavals. According to legend, the Bhil ruler Bansia ruled over the region and named it Banswara. He was defeated and killed by Jagmal Singh, who then became the first Maharaval of the princely state.

Later in 1913, social reformer Govindgiri and Punja along with the Bhils revolted against the ruling government; however they were suppressed. Several Bhils, who were conducting a meeting, were killed at the Mangarh hillock. This event is also referred to as Mini Jallianwala Bagh Massacre and the place is called as Mangarh Dham.

In 1949, when the princely states in the Union of India, Banswara State and Kushalgarh merged in Greater Rajasthan, Banswara was carved out as a separate district. The region is inhabited by tribes like Bhils, Bhil Meenas, Damor, Charpotas and Ninamas and other major castes like Patels, Rajputs, Brahmans, Mahajans. The popular dialect spoken in the region is Wagri, which is a mixture of Gujarati and Mewari.

The nearest airport to reach the region is Udaipur Airport, which serves regular flights from Jodhpur, Jaipur, Mumbai and Delhi. Ratlam, which is located around 85 km from the district, is the nearest railway station. Bus connections from Ratlam, Dungarpur, Dohad and Jaipur are available for reaching Banswara. The best time to visit Banswara is from August to March.

There is so much to see in Banswara.
