Pali has been an important part of Rajasthan from centuries and a hub for merchant activities. Carved out of the erstwhile state of Jodhpur, Pali flaunts its rich heritage and culture in the form of beautiful Jain temples and other elaborate monuments. Resembling an irregular triangle, this district shares a common border with eight districts in Rajasthan namely, Nagaur and Jodhpur in the North, Barmer in the West, Rajmasand and Udaipur to the Southeast, Ajmer to the Northeast and Sirohi and Jalore in the South and Southwest respectively.
