Kankroli, Dwarkadhisji Temple

This Place is situated between Udaipur and Jaipur. The two must place to Visit are Shri Dwarkadhisji Temple and Raisagar beside it. Situated very high above sea level very cool place. People are very friendly. I wanted to visit Rose garden but due to my shortage of time couldn't visit there. Winter will be the suggested time to visit over there. The hotels are also very much within budget.

Rajsamand Overview

Rajsamand is a small town in the state of Rajasthan. This city has been named after Rajsamand Lake, which is an artificial lake formed by Rana Raj Singh of Mewar in the 17th century. It is a very important place located at about 60 km from Udaipur and is the administrative centre of Rajsamand District, which is located in the watershed of the Banas River and its tributaries.

Sprawling across an area of 4,768 km², Rajsamand district is bound by the Aravalli Range in the north-western side, close to Pali district. To the north of Rajsamand is the Ajmer district, Bhilwara lies towards the north-east and east, Chittorgarh district is in the south-east, while Udaipur is on the south. Ari, Gomati, Chandra and Bhoga are some of the main rivers flowing in the Rajsamand district.

This region has a unique culture with festivals and fairs like Rana Raj Singh Festival, Gangaur Fair, etc. which are celebrated with traditional dances and songs. The traditional dances performed here are Goomar, Gair and Rasila, performed mainly in temples. In these dances, the performers wear bright clothes and traditional jewellery, made of silver and gold.

The people who perform all these cultural dances belong to certain tribal or traditional communities who have been performing these from several years. These dance skills are generally passed on from generation to generation as a part of their way to earn a living. The traditional singers here are mostly women who sing devotional songs all night during religious events and festivals.

Although Rajasthan has an agro-based economy, the regions of Rajsamand are rich in natural mineral resources. It is due to these mineral resources, Rajsamand is one of the top exporters of marble, granite and other rare stones to all over India. Dariba and Jawar mines are considered the principal sources of zinc, silver and manganese.

The two most popular locations in Rajsamand are the Pristine Rajsamand Lake and Kankroli. Kankroli was a pilgrimage centre for the Vaishnavas and it even has temples dedicated to one of the seven forms of Lord Krishna, named as Dwarkadish. Maharana Raj Singh built the temple here in the year 1676 and in the same year, the statues brought from Mathura were established.

The Rajsamand Lake is considered as a royal lake that is located in the region of Mewar and represents the ancient designs and architecture in the form of arches and pavilions. The climatic conditions of Rajsamand are mostly dry and hot. The best time to visit Rajsamand are the months of October and March.

There is so much to see in Rajsamand.
