District Headquarter

Great place for farming. Good land for cultivation. Whole baran is surrounded by different types of temples and picnic spots. Parvati river is situated nearby baran. Banganga river is present in between the city. Whole city is going to develop in or before 5 years.

A month long Stay in Baran

Baran is one of the unexplored district of state Rajasthan from tourism point of view. It is also one of under developed district for which world bank had planned many things for development of locals and the project District Poverty Initiative Project DPIP). I know it because of my father was deputed here under this project and explored almost every treasure of this district. I also got this opportunity to explore this area, when I was there during my training in, Anta. First I begins with Sitabadi. A place where Maa Sita (wife of Lord Ram) gave birth to love & Kush. A temple is there with Kunds of water which are automatically refilled by natural stream of water located at base of kund. The place surrounded by lush greenery. A must visit place. Next I visited Bhand devera Temple, which is also called as Khajuraho of Rajasthan. A lord Shiva's temple with finely craved postures. Next is the Kunda khoh, which is a unexplored destination near Shahabad. A view from top of a great and deep valley, which becomes a huge waterfall in monsoon season. Next is the Shahabad fort, one of the strongest fort in the Hadoti region. Another fort in Baran is Shergarh fort which is one of the best fort in all over Rajasthan. In my opinion two to three days are enough for visiting all the must visit places of Baran . . Here is the list of Must visit places:. - Sitabadi. - Bhand-devra Temple. - Shahabad Fort. - Kunda Khoh. - Kapildhara. - Kakoni. - Shergarh Fort. - Kanyadah.
