Jalore Overview

Formerly known as Jabalipura, Jalore is a district in the south-western part of Rajasthan. The administrative headquarters of Jalore is based in Jalore city, which is popular as the Granite City of Rajasthan.

Towards the north-west, the district is bounded by Barmer District and to the north-east by Pali District. On the south-eastern side, the district shares its boundary with Sirohi District, and on the south-western side with Banaskantha District of Gujarat.

Spread over an area of 10,640 sq km, the district is divided into five sub-units, namely Ahore, Jalore, Bhinmal, Raniwara and Sanchore. To the south of Jalore city lies the Sukri River, the tributary of Luni River and the main river of the district.

The history of the district dates backs to the 8th century, when the region was ruled by the Pratihar King, Vatsa Raja. Later, towards the end of the 12th century, the region fell into the hands of the Parmars, who built the famous Jalore Fort.

Post 1164, the region came under the administrative control of Kumarpal, who belonged to the Solanki branch of the Chalukya clan. Soon, Kirti Pal, Nadol king Arhan’s youngest son, spread the Chauhan tradition in Jalore. After Kirti Pal, the Jalore throne was ascended by Samar Singh and after him by Uday Singh.

The entire lineage of Chauhans ruling the region, were known by the name of Songara Chauhan, after the mountain Swarngiri, which contained their fort. During the reign of Kanhad Dev Songara, who was the successor of Samanta Simha, Jalore was attacked and destroyed by Alauddin Khilji, the Sultan of Delhi. In the 16th century, the land of Jalore went into the hands of the Mughal Empire and remained part of it until 1947.

Since time immemorial, Jalore has been renowned as the centre of literature and culture in Rajasthan. Shaiva and Jaina religions are predominant in the district, which also influences the culture of the region. Dhol dance, Dandiya, Shakur dance and Matki dance are popular folk dances and are performed during the festivals. Major festivals celebrated in the region are Gangaur, Teej, Akshaya Tritiya, Diwali and Holi.

The main attractions of the district are Jalore Fort, Sundha Mata Temple and Jain temples of Adinath, Mahavira, Parsvanath and Santinath. Besides sightseeing places, granite slabs and mojaris also attract tourists to the district.

Jodhpur Airport, which is served by flights from Delhi, Jaipur, Udaipur and Mumbai, is the nearest airport. Situated on the Raniwara-Samdari rail route, Jalore Railway Station is the main railhead serving the district of Jalore.

Located near National Highway 15, Jalore Bus Station is the main bus terminal of the district. Regular buses from Udaipur, Sirohi, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer serve the bus station. The best time to visit Jalore is from October through February, when the weather in the district is moderate.
