Dhanop is a little village near Bhilwara with only the Sheetla Mata Temple to boast of. But it makes for an interesting visit as it’s the most colourful temple around. The walls and pillars are bright red while the roof is sparkling white. The floor is of marble, and a checkered one at that. In the complex is a neem (Azadirachta indica) tree which looks more like a Christmas tree. This is because of the hundreds of colourful pieces of cloth which devotees have tied around its branches in the belief that it will fulfill their wishes. Anyway, the main idol of the goddess Sheetla (a form of Durga) is of black stone with patches of sindoor (vermilion) on it. Same is the case with the stone walls in the inner sanctum.

Mandalgarh
Bijolia
Distance : 85km from Bhilwara

The town situated in the South East of Bhilwara. It is close to the borders of the District Bundi. The ancient name of Bijoliya was 'VINDHYAVALI'. It is walled with two gates (North and South) and picturesquely situated on a plateau called the UPARMAL. Objects of historical interests are three Saivite temples , probably of the tenth century . A reservoir called the Mandakini Baori with steps, five Jain temples dedicated to PARASWNATH .The remains of a palace and two rock inscriptions deserve mention. The Jain temples, situated about 1.5 Km. of the south east were built by Mahajan Lala in the time of the Chauhan Raja Someshwar of Ajmer in 1170 AD. One of them is considered scared containing a complete small model of a temple inside . The rock inscriptions are both dated 1170 AD. The fortified town of Bijolia is unknown except for its temples which are by the hundreds, both ruined and standing. It was the hub of religious activity from the 11th century till the 13th century, and over a hundred temples were built here, out of which only three remain. During the 16th century the area was ruled by a Parmar chief and was a small fiefdom of Mewar. From inscriptions found in and around its ruined temples, it comes to light that Bijolia was greatly influenced by Ajmer and was a bastion of the Chauhana power in the southwest. During late 12th century AD Bijolia came to be ruled by Someshwar, a Chauhana ruler who built a temple. However, he was killed in battle against Kuntipal, the ruler of Gujarat, in 1170AD.

The Temple Attractions

The Chauhanas were religious and encouraged any form of worship, especially of Shiva and Kali. These three standing edifices are fine examples of how Rajput temple architecture evolved from small shrines to large temples.

Undeshwar Temple

The main temple is that of Undeshwar, a sanctuary covered with a spiraling and furrowed pagoda, intricately carved with religious motifs. The exterior of this temple, like the other two, is also subject to rich engravings as are walls, pillars and ceilings within the temple. The Undeshwara temple is an extrordinary one in the sense that it is one of the very few temples in India whose lower sanctum is partially underwater. Out of this little receptacle portrudes a Shiva linga (symbolic phallus) making the temple the only one of its kind. This sanctum is the Rewati kund, built by the Rohilla chief Rahil, and legend has it that whoever bathes in the tank will be endowed with numerous offsprings
Mandakini Kund

In the complex is a water tank called the Mandakini kund formed from the ancient stream Mandakini, which ran amongst the temples. There are two more temples, one here of whom is dedicated to Ganesha, the god with an elephant head and the body of a man. The Ganesha temple is a unique one, for its central shikhar (dome) is surrounded by four chatris (pavilions) on each corner of the roof, a feature seen mostly in Rajput palaces and forts. A statue of Ganesha guards the entrance to the temple.
Jain Temples
Also in Bijolia are the ruins of a fort, within whose walls is Nau Chowki, a palace, of which nothing much remains. Five Jain temples dedicated to the 23rd Jain fordmaker Paraswanath are spectacular architectural examples of 11th century Jain architecture. Flaunting imposing engravings on their walls and pillars, two of these religious sanctuaries have lenghty inscriptions on them. One of them, the Shankh Puran, is 15 feet long and 5 feet wide, and contains 52 lines in Sanskrit, the ancient language. The design of these temples and the manner in which they are positioned is indicative of the Digambar sect of Jainism.

Bijolia is a city of ruined temples, and inscriptions found amongst them declare that it was not only Time which turned destroyer. Certain inscriptions mention the arrivals of Muhammad Ghori and much later Aurangzeb and attribute some of the demolitions to them.
Hajaresvara Mahadeva Temple
On the eastern side of the town near the city wall, there are three beautiful temples. Prominent amongst them is Hajaresvara Mahadeva temple. It has a high linga surrounded by hundreds of small lingas and hence called Hajaresvara or Sahastralinga. The temples of Mahakala and Baijanath are also well known.
MandalGarh
Distance : 52km from Bhilwara

The place ,situated at a distance of 52 Kms. towards South-East of Bhilwara. It is sub division,tehsil and panchayat samiti of same name.The place is of historical importance because it was the scene of many a fierce battle during the medieval times, according to the muslim historians.
The place was taken twice by Mahmud Khilji of Malwa in the middle of the fifteenth century , and subsequently appears to have belonged alternately to the Ranas of Mewar and the Mughal Emperors. In or about 1650 A.D. Shah Jahan granted it in Jagir to Raja Roop Singh of KishanGarh, who partially built a palace here , but Rana Raj Singh retook it in 1660.A.D. Twenty years later captured the palace and in 1700 A.D. made it over to Jhujar Singh Chief of Pisangan (now in Ajmer district ) from whom it was recovered by Rana Amar Singh in 1706A.D., and it since then remained in the uninterrupted possession of his successors.
To the North-West is a fort about half a mile in length with a low rampart wall and bastions encircling the crest of the hill on which it stands .The fort is said to have been constructed by a chief of the Balnote Clan of Rajputs ( a branch of Solankis). There is an old temple Jaleshwar by name (1619 v.s.) The fort also houses a temple dedicated to Shiva.
Mandalgarh Fort
A detour between Menal and Bijolia takes you to Mandalgarh, which is the third fort of Mewar built by Rana Kumbha. Located at a distance of 52 km in Mandalgarh, from Bhilwara, this is a fort which is 1 km long and at a height of 1850 feet above sea level. Naturally this fort was much secured. At this place there are number of temple of God & Goddesses to visit.
Menal Watter Fall
Around Bundi are deep gorges surrounded by forests, and within these lie the ruins of a 12th century palace. The name Menal is derived from Maha Nal (great gorge), and that is what Menal really is. It is located on the Bhilwara-Kota road, 80 kms away from Bhilwara. It has beautiful waterfall, where water fall to a depth of 150 feet in a v-shaped valley with great force.

Prithviraj Chauhana, who also ruled Delhi for a while, had set his heart on Menal, and it became his favourite mountain retreat when the scorching Rajasthan summer would set in. For this he built a palace on the banks of the Menal river which runs over granite slabs before finally plunging into a gorge over 122 meters deep. The entrance to the mansion is via a two storeyed gateway carved with images of the gods Ganesha and Bhairava. The square courtyard beyond the entrance houses a huge Shiva temple of stone, built in the ancient Hindu style with a carved pagoda and pillars. The walls of the temple are carved with motifs of Hindu dieties and various other themes, interspersed with images of elephants. of special mention are the images of Shiva and Parvati which form the chief subject of the engravings. Shiva and Parvati are depicted in various postures and surrounded by dancers, musicians, lesser gods and animals. Halfway up the pagoda is a large stone lion, perhaps depicting victory. A number of smaller ruined temples lie around the Shiva temple.
Mahanaleshvara Temple ,Menal
The 11th century Mahanaleshvara temple is a perfect example of the western Indian style of stone temple architecture. The entrance is embellished with a seated stone lion, and there are number of guardian deities carved on portruding panels in the walls. The inner sanctum is dominated by projecting balconies while the roof is a pyramidical array of ribbed and finely carved stone.

During the rainy season, sound of the waterfall can be heard from a long distance. The best time to visit this place is July to October, when Menali River flows & meets at Triveni with Banas & Badech.

These cattle fairs are a regular feature in almost all districts of Rajasthan. This is not surprising because the Rajasthani rural economy, to a large extent, revolves around cattle even though the majority of Hindus are vegetarians. These fairs are primarily meant for the trade in domestic animals but that does not stop anybody from adding a little color to the occasion. The fairs often take on a carnival nature with stalls of items of daily use, toys and a lot more.
