Dungarpur Travel:

Dungarpur is situated in the foothills of the Aravalis in the western Indian state of Rajasthan and is famous for its temples and palaces. The district of Dungarpur extends from latitude 23°50' in the north to longitude 73°50' in the east. There is a good road network that connects Dungarpur to other cities in Rajasthan.

Two magnificent rivers-the Mahi and the som flow through the area. While the former separates the district from Banswara, the former separates the district and Udaipur. Dungarpur was founded in 1282 A.D. by Rawal Veer Singh, when he took over this part of the state from the Bhill Chieftain Dungaria. The area is rich in teak, mahua, mango and Khajur trees.

Dungarpur is famous for its unique style of architecture as seen in its palaces and noble residences. These royal residences are adorned by "Jharokhas: built in stone in a unique style typical of the areas developed during the region and silversmiths are renowned for lacquer painted toys and picture framing.
History of Dungarpur

The district is named after the capital of the former princely state of Dungarpur. Dungar means a hill or a mountain and pur means a town, thus Dungarpur means a 'hill-town'.

Rawal Veer Singh Dev took over this part of the state from the Bhil Chieftain Dungaria and laid the foundation of the city as well as of the Old Palace on October 14, 1282 AD.

Dungarpur is famous for its unique style of architecture. The palaces of the Dungarpur princes and the residences of the noblemen are adorned by a new style of jharokhas, which was developed during Maha Rawal Shiv Singh's reign (AD 1730-1785). The gold and silversmiths of Dungarpur and Banswara are well known for their lacquer painted toys and picture framing.
