With its ruins embedded deep into the southern region of Rajasthan, Sirohi stands as one of the smallest districts in Rajasthan. Covering an area of merely 5139 sq. km. of area, it has been often been referred to as the third smallest district in Rajasthan.
The foundations for the town of Sirohi were laid back in 1405 when Rao Sobhaji laid its roots on the eastern slope of Siranwa Hill and named it as Shivpuri. Shivpuri, however, couldn’t stand against the challenges posed by time and was soon reduced to ruins. Rao Sobhaji’s son founded a fortress on the eastern slope of the same hill. This fortress became the capital of the city and acquired its present day status as Sirohi.
Having direct origins to the princely era of Rajputs, Sirohi has been highly influenced by their rich culture and heritage. This is usually witnessed in the form of numerous temples and shrines present in the Dev Nagari colony such as the Varman Sun Temple, Chandravati Temple, Jiraval Temple, etc. However, the widespread presence of temples in this region isn’t the only aspects for tourism in the area. Various other attractions include the Sirohi Fort, Nakki Lake, Skyfall Point, Achalgarh Fort, and the Mount Abu Wildlife Sanctuary.
