DUNGARPUR

Dungarpur, famous for the green marble found here, lies snug in the foothills of the Aravalli range and is irrigated by two rivers, Mahi And Som. Dungarpur is renowned for the exceptional architecture of its palaces and royal residences which are adorned with intricately carved 'jharokhas' (windows).  Places worth seeing here are the Udai Bilas Palace, Juna Mahal, Gaib Sagar Lake with the shrine of Shrinathji on its banks, Badal Mahal, Baneshwar Temple and Vijay Rajrajeshwer Temple. Dungarpur’s goldsmiths and silversmiths are skilled artisans famous for their lacquer-painted toys and picture frames.

Baneshwar Fair, a popular tribal festival is held at the Baneshwar Temple of Dungarpur. This festival, held on the full moon day of February or Magh Shukla Purnima, attracts a large number of tourists. On this pious occasion, Bhils travel all the way from Gujarat, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh to take a dip at the confluence of the rivers, Mahi and Som.
