Banswara Travel Guide
It is known as the “City of Hundred Islands” due to a large number of islands in the Mahi River that flow through Banswara. The name “Banswara” can be attributed to a huge proliferation of Bamboo (Bans) forests in the area.

Nestled beautifully amongst the Aravallis, Banswara, a picturesque city in southern Rajasthan widely represents the tribal culture of the state. It is known as the “City of Hundred Islands” due to a large number of islands in the Mahi River that flow through Banswara. The name “Banswara” can be attributed to a huge proliferation of Bamboo (Bans) forests in the area.

Banswara travel guide is incomplete without a mention of its history. The princely state of Banswara was ruled by the Maharavals. It is believed that a Bhil ruler named Bansia ruled the place and named it as Banswara. Later, after defeating the incumbent ruler, Jagmal Singh became the Maharaval of the princely state.

Situated on a ridge 990 ft above sea level, the district is surrounded by Madhya Pradesh in the east, Chittaurgarh in the north-east, Udaipur in the north, Durgapur in the west and Gujarat in the south-west. One can easily reach Banswara from Udaipur (157 Kms), Indore (215 Kms) and Ahmedabad (285 Kms).
