Banswada Tour Guide

Banswada has its name derived from Bans or bamboo trees, which once grew here in profusion. Maharawal Jamal Singh founded the previous state. While the central and western portion of the district is fertile plains, the dotted ranges of the Aravalli form the eastern region. The prehistoric town is surrounded by a stone wall, now in ruins. A palace of a previous ruler of Banswara stands overlooking the town. The teak forests are found on the slopes of the Aravalli hills. Mango, Khajur and Mahua trees are also a part of the vegetation of the district. Banswara has rich wildlife including squirrels, lizards, snakes, chinkara, ronj and four horned antelope. Panthers can be seen rarely. The avian diversity includes the black drongo, grey shirke, green bee-eater, parrot, jungle crow, wood pecker and common myna. Grey jungle fowl and grey partridge are usually marked in the remote parts of the forests. It is a paradise for nature lovers and wildlife lovers. Banswada gives you an ample ooportunity to explore the verdant land and its treasures.
