One of Rajasthan tourism’s best kept secret, Dungarpur is a delight to visit. This offbeat destination in Rajasthan is ideal for history lovers, who have ample opportunities to have a glance at the exceptional architecture and royal residences that the state is so proud of. According to the historical records, Dungarpur was brought down on the Rajasthan map by Rawal Veer Singh in 1358 A.D., who was also the eldest son of the ruler of Mewar - Karan Singh. There are a number of historical tourist attractions in Dungarpur like Udai Bilas Palace, Juna Mahal, and Badal Mahal. Most of these architectural wonders are embellished with the 'jharokhas' (windows) and built in one signature style that was brought into the picture during the time of Maharawal Shiv Singh (1730-1785 AD). Architecturally, the city is a treasure trove that is located in the south most corner of Rajasthan.
