Lying 18 km away from Chittorgarh, Nagari is a semi-agrarian city situated on the banks of Kusasthali river. This semi-industrialised area is known for its well-established textile industries, Nagari hills and various temples. Tourists mostly visit here to enjoy activities like mountaineering, expedition and picnics. One of the highest peaks here is the Nagari Nose that lies at an elevation of 855 m. Since it looks a lot like a human nose it has been named so. In ancient times, it was called Majhimika or Madhyamika and was majorly developed during the Mauryan and the Gupta periods. The excavations and a large number of coins found here indicate dominant Hindu and Buddhist influences. The coins of the Sibi tribes have also been found here. The place passed into the hands of various rulers such as the Western Kshatrapa, Hunas, Malavas. The ancient Shiva temple, Hathiyon ka Bara, and Ubhdivat or the Prakash stambh are some of the other prominent sites to visit in the area.
