Mewar and Marwar- Differences you must know!

“Mhaaro Rang Rangeelo Rajasthan” is truly blessed with vivacious cultures, royal heritages, holy traditions, communities living in harmony and enchanting nature. It is also, literally and in every sense, the “Land of Kings.” This time we are here to tell you the difference between two major regions of Rajasthan that are the Mewar Province and the Marwar Province. Mewar and Marwar are pretty much similar on the basic level, but when scrutinized, they have some contrasting features. Let’s find out more about the

‘two regions with a sole soul.’

P.C.- trip savvy

“Territories of the “Land of Kings”

Mewar, the south-central region of the state of Rajasthan includes:

➤ Bhilwara,

➤ Rajsamand,

➤ Chittorgarh,


➤Tehsil Pirawa of Jhalawar District,

➤Neemuch and Mandsaur districts of Madhya Pradesh

➤and some parts of Gujarat.


Marwar region includes:

➤ Barmer

➤ Sirohi



➤ Jodhpur


➤and parts of Sikar.


“What’s in a name they say, but then everything has a name”

The word “Mewar” is loosely extracted from the word ‘Medapata’ which is the ancient name of the region. ‘Meda’ refers to the Meda Tribe who used to reside in the region (now called Badnor) and ‘pata’ refers to the administrative unit.

The word “Marwar” comes from the word ‘Maru,’  a Sanskrit word, which means desert and from a Rajasthani slang‘wad’ which means a particular area. Marwar is basically known as ‘The Region of Desert’.  

“The richest histories in the country”

History of both Mewar and Marwar is quite rich and somewhat similar as both were founded by Rajputs. On one hand, where Mewar has a history of wars, defeats, successions, and establishments, Marwar’s history is complex with no direct successions and Mughals and Rajputs ruling now and then.

After the establishment of both Mewar and Marwar, the timeline of monarchy witnessed a number of kings and Britishers as well.

Here we have a timeline of reigns of the famous monarchs of Mewar:


Known for

Reign-   period

Bappa Rawal founder of Mewar 734-753
Maharana Kumbha ➤his reign is considered as the “golden period of Mewar”

➤Was the only Hindu king of his time in India

Maharana Udai Singh ➤Murdered his own father, Rana Kumbha and turned out to be an abominated king.

➤Was struck by lightning just before his daughter’s marriage and died on the spot.

Maharana Udai Singh II ➤Founder of Udaipur, the city of lakes 1537-1572
Maharana Pratap ➤Only ruler to not give up in front of Mughals.

➤Fought the famous “Battle of Haldighati” against Akbar, the then Mughal ruler

Maharana Jagat Singh ➤57th ruler of Mewar

➤The famous Jagmandir Palace and Jagdish temple in Udaipur was built during his reign.

Maharana Swaroop Singh ➤Britishers started settling in India during his reign and he supported Britishers in every way possible. 1842-1861
Maharana Sajjan Singh ➤He did everything in his power for Udaipur and its environment

➤Udaipur became the second city in the country to have a municipality, after Bombay, under his rule

➤He built a beautiful monsoon palace in Udaipur, that is Sajjangarh Fort, to complement the beauty of Udaipur in the backdrop.

Maharana Bhupal Singh ➤Founded many colleges and schools, especially for girls and also worked towards the betterment of lakes and environment of Udaipur 1930-1955
Maharana Bhagwat Singh ➤Last ruler of Mewar

➤Sold off most of his properties like Fateh Prakash, Jagmandir and other architectures on the banks of Lake Pichola so that all of them are well maintained

➤Even though the financial situation of the Royalties was depleting, he worked towards the betterment of Mewar.



Marwar was established by the Gurjara Pratihara, a Rajput clan. They first settled their kingdom in the 6th century in Marwar with the capital at Mandore which is 9 km from Jodhpur.

Here we have the timeline mentioning famous rulers of Marwar:


Known For

Reign Period

Rao Sheoji ➤first ruler to rule over Marwar from Rathore dynasty 1226-1273
Rao Ranmal ➤Was helped by Sisodias of Mewar to rule over Marwar

➤Was assassinated on the orders of Rana Kumbha of Mewar.

Rao Jodha ➤Founder of Jodhpur 1438-1489
Maharaja Jaswant Singh ➤Fought the Battle of Dharmatpur against Aurangzeb 1638-1678
Maharaja Ajit Singh ➤Became ruler of Marwar after 25 years of war against Aurangzeb. 1679-1724
Maharaja Bakhat Singh ➤Fought the Battle of Gangwana against Mughals and Kachhawa 1751-1752
Maharaja Sir Hanwant Singh ➤Last ruler of Marwar before independence 9 June 1947-15 August 1947


During the famine of 1899-1900, Marwar suffered terribly and seeing the terrible fate Marwar underwent, Maharaja of Jodhpur decided to join the dominion of Pakistan but  Lord Mountbatten warned him that majority of his subjects were Hindus and joining Pakistani dominion may create problems for him and the kingdom. In 1950, Rajputana ultimately became the state of Rajasthan.

Maharana Pratap

Proud communities of Mewar and Marwar

Rajputs are a well-known warrior clan of Rajasthan. Their trenchant identity is usually described as “proud Rajput tribes of Rajputana”. Their lineage is traced from the Fire family, the Sun Family and the Moon Family.

The Sun Family includes:

➤ Sisodias of Chittaur and Udaipur

➤Rathores of Jodhpur and Bikaner and

➤Kachawas of Amber and Jaipur.

While the Moon Family includes the Bhattis of Jaisalmer.

The trading communities include Khandelwal, Agrawal, Maheshwari, Jains, and Gahoi of Marwar. Birlas, Bajajs, Goenkas Singhanias are some top business groups in India, who are famous Marwaris from Rajasthan.

The artisan’s communities like Sonar, Lohars, Bhils etc. are majorly found in Mewar.

“Reflection of valor- Mewari, and Marwari”

Mewari should not be confused with Marwari as both the languages are different. People who have been into both the regions can easily identify the boldness of Mewari and the Sweetness of Marwadi.

Mewari is inspired by Devanagari script while maximum words of Marwari are adopted from Sanskrit language and is traditionally associated with Mahajani language.

Mewari- 5 million speakers coming from Bhilwara, Chittorgarh, Udaipur, and Rajsamand districts of the state of Rajasthan.

Marwari-  20 million speakers (most-spoken)


“Aah, the food”

Dal Bati Churma is the signature dish that opts for both the kitchens of Mewar and Marwar. Although,  very few people know that Mewar ’s cuisine includes both vegetarian and non-veg food.

Whereas, Marwari cuisine generally follows vegetarian food. Some authentic dishes like

➤Laal Maas and Khad Khargosh

are non-vegetarian delights and are relished by the people of Mewar.

Whereas, the people of Marwar enjoys vegetarian delights such as:

➤Bajre ki roti

➤Pyaaz Kachori

➤Bharwa Besan Mirch

➤Panchmel Daal

and many more fabulous recipes.

Apart from this, the richness in Mewari authentic Thali can be seen with the use of dried spices (Masalas) and dry fruits like cashews and almonds. Whereas the palette of Marwari food is a little dry reflecting the regional conditions.

Marwari Thali focuses more on ingredients like gram flour (Besan) and vegetables like Ker Sangri, Gavarfali, and more.

But, in both the culinary concepts, the common things are cooking techniques, Spicy flavor and the use of ghee.

 Food Festival in Udaipur

“The Great and Glorious Festivals” 

Besides the culture and region, festivals can also let anyone recognize the distinctive feature of both the heritage. Whether it’s Diwali, Holi or Bhaidooj, all the festivals are significant in  Rajasthan. Mewar festival, primarily known as ‘Gangaur,’ is celebrated with lots of enthusiasm amongst women of the region.

And, considering the parts of Marwar, the festival which is widely celebrated by women of the region is “Teej.” which is celebrated in the monsoon season and determined by the cycle of the moon.

Despite these differences, a thing worth remembering is that both the regions and their cultures are blended so well that people always say, and forever say, that not Mewar or Marwar but Rajasthan is Enchanting!

महाराणा काल में गणगौर की सवारी का दृश्य | How Gangaur was celebrated in ancient times

हमारे देश में त्यौहार, समय अनुसार मनाये जाते हैं। उदयपुर के लोग राजाओं-महाराजाओं के काल से ही उत्सव-जलसे बड़े धूम-धाम से मनाते आए हैं। उन्ही त्योहारों में से एक है, गणगौर। गणगौर का त्यौहार चैत्र महीने के शुक्ल पक्ष की तीज पर आता है। आज हम आपको लेकर चल रहे हैं इतिहास के पन्नो में। क्या आपने कभी सोचा है कि महाराणा काल में गणगौर जैसा त्यौहार, जो कि आज भी इतना रंगीन और खुशनुमा है, उस वक़्त कैसे मनाया जाता था? इतिहास का विस्तृत पेश करती हुई गाथा वीर विनोद से आभार सहित कुछ अंश इस जश्न के, हम आपसे प्रस्तुत कर रहे हैं।

18 शताब्दी अर्थात महाराणा सज्जन सिंह जी  के काल में गणगौर के इस त्यौहार का विस्तृत वर्णन कुछ इस प्रकार किया गया है- “नवीन वर्ष आरम्भ होते ही सभी ज्योतिष-गण उत्तम वस्त्र और आभूषणों से सुसज्जित होकर, महाराणा की सेवा में उपस्थित होते है तथा शुभकामनाओं के साथ महाराणा को नवीन पंचाग भेंट करते है। गणगौर इसके अगले दिन मनाया जाता है। गणगौर के दिन सभी स्त्रियाँ सुन्दर वस्त्र और आभूषण पहनकर बाग़-बावड़ियों में जाती है। महाराणा के आदेश पर राज्य भर में जश्न होता है। ये जश्न किसी धूम-धाम से कम नहीं होता।

दिन के ठीक तीन बजे पहला नगाड़ा बजता है, उसके बाद दूसरा और फिर तीसरे नगाड़े पर महाराणा घोड़े पर विराजमान होते हैं। एकलिंगगढ़ पर 21 तोपों की सलामी दी जाती है। बड़ी पोल से त्रिपोलिया घाट तक दोनों तरफ़ लकड़ी के बड़े खूंटे लगा दिए जाते है और उन पर रस्सियाँ बाँध दी जाती है। इन खूटों के आसपास पुलिस के जवान पहरा देते हैं। इन पर बाँधी गयी रस्सी के भीतर राजकीय अधिकारियों के अलावा अन्य व्यक्ति नहीं आ सकता है। जब महाराणा की सवारी महल से रवाना होती है तब सवारी के बाद सबसे आगे मेवाड़ के राजकीय निशान से चिन्हित हाथी चलते हैं, उनके पीछे के हाथियों पर सरदार, पासवान और अन्य अधिकारी होते है।

सवारी में जंगी घुड़सवारों के साथ साथ अँग्रेज़ अफ़सर भी शरीक होते है। विदेशी बाजा बजता हुआ निकलता है और उसके पीछे निकलते है सोने चाँदी के हौदे जो ख़ास हाथी पर कसे हुए होते है। इसके साथ ही राज्य के बड़े-बड़े प्रतिष्ठित लोग, उमराव, सरदार और चारण घोड़ों पर आते है। इस कारवाँ के पीछे जरी व सोने-चाँदी से सुसज्जित घोड़े रहते है।”

महाराणा की सवारी का दृश्य कुछ इस प्रकार होता है

“मधुर, सुरीला बाजा बजता रहता है, उसके पीछे महाराणा अच्छी पोशाक, ‘अमर शाही’, ‘आरसी शाही’ और ‘स्वरूप शाही’ पगड़ियों में से एक किस्म की पगड़ी, जामा और नाना प्रकार के हीरे मोतियों के आभूषणों को धारण किये और कमर बंध व ढाल लगाए हुए घोड़े पर विद्यमान रहते है।

महाराणा के पीछे दूसरे सरदार, जागीरदार, पासवान व जंगी सैनिक रहते है और सबसे पीछे हाथी चलते है। सवारी के दोनों तरफ छड़ीदारो की बुलंद आवाज़ और आगे वीरता के दोहो का गायन करने वाले ढोलियो की आवाजें सवारी के आनंद को दोगुना कर देती है। इसी ठाठ बाट के साथ महाराणा धीरे-धीरे त्रिपोलिया घाट पर पहुंचते हैं और वह घोड़े से उतर कर नाव पर सवार होते हैं। इनमें से एक नाव के ऊँचे गोखड़े पर लगभग दो फुट ऊंचा सिंहासन रहता है, उस पर चार खम्बों वाली लकड़ी की एक छतरी होती है। सिंहासन और छतरी ज़र्दोजी और ज़री से सुशोभित होती है।  सिंहासन के चारो तरफ, नीचे के तख्तो पर शानदार पोशाकों व गहनों से सज्जित सरदार, चारण व पासवान अपने दर्जे के मुताबिक बैठते है और कितने ही अन्य लोग आसपास खड़े रहते है। महाराणा के पद के नीचे के सभ्यगण उसी के समीप जुड़ी हुई नाव में सवार होते है। नाव की सवारी धीरे-धीरे दक्षिण की तरफ बढ़ती है और बड़ी पाल तक जाने के बाद फिर लौट कर त्रिपोलिया घाट पर आती है। दक्षिण के तरफ बढ़ते हुए आतिशबाज़ी चलाने का हुक्म दिया जाता है, तालाब के किनारों तथा कश्तियो पर से तरह-तरह की रंग-बिरंगी आतिशबाज़िया होती है। ये सब देखने में बहुत आनंद आता है।

इस अवसर पर बहुत से लोग सवारी को देखने दूर-दूर से आते है, क्योंकि उदयपुर के गणगौर के जलसे की दूसरे  राजपुतानों में बड़ी तारीफ़ होती है। तालाब के किनारे देखने वाले लोगो की बड़ी भीड़ रहती है, इतनी की भीतर घुसना भी बहुत कठिन हो जाता है। इसके बाद महल से गणगौर माता की सवारी निकलती है, जिस के साथ नाना प्रकार की सुन्दर पोशाकों और सोने-चाँदी के गहनों से सुसज्जित दासियो के झुंड साथ चलते है। एक स्त्री के सिर पर लगभग 3 फुट ऊंची, सोने चाँदी के गहनों से शोभायमान, लकड़ी की बनी हुई गणगौर माता की मूर्ति रखी होती है। सवारी के आगे और पीछे, सवारी के लाज़मी हाथी घोड़ों पर पंडित व ज्योतिष लोग विद्यमान रहते हैं।

त्रिपोलिया घाट पर सवारी के पहुंचते ही महाराणा अपने सिंहासन से खड़े होकर गणगौर माता को प्रणाम करते है, फिर गणगौर माता को फर्श युक्त वेदिका पर रखकर, पंडित व ज्योतिषी लोग पूजन करके महाराणा साहिब को पुनः देते है। इसके बाद दासियाँ गणगौर माता के दोनों तरफ बराबर खड़े हो कर, प्रणाम के तौर पर झुकती हुई, “लहुरे” (एक तरह का गाना) गाती है। यह जलसा देखने लायक होता है। यहाँ राज्य में लकड़ी की बनी गणगौर की बड़ी मूर्ति के अलावा मिट्टी की बनी हुई गणगौर और दूसरे भगवानों की छोटी मूर्तियां भी देखी जा सकती है। बाकी शहर में दूसरे भगवान और गणगौर की मूर्तियां साथ ही निकाली जाती है।

राजपूताना की कुल रियासतों में इस त्यौहार को एक बड़े उत्सव के तौर पर मनाया जाता है। इस देश में ऐसी कहावत है कि दशहरा राजपूतों के लिए और गणगौर स्त्रियों के लिए बड़ा त्यौहार है। यहाँ महादेव को ईसर (ईश्वर) और पार्वती को गणगौर कहते हैं। फिर गणगौर माता को जिस तरह जुलुस के साथ लाते हैं, उसी तरह फिर से महल में पहुंचाया जाता है। इसके बाद उसी फर्श पर दसियों द्वारा घूमर नृत्य और गाना-बजाना होता है। स्थानीय निवासी लोग भी नावों में सवार होकर इस जलसे को देखने के लिए आते हैं। आखिर में महाराणा रूप घाट पर नाव से उतर कर तामजान में सवार हो महल में पधार जाते है जहां कीमती गलीचे- मखमल का फर्श, ज़रदोज़ी के शामियाने व सोने चाँदी से बने हुए सिंहासन व कुर्सियां इनका इंतजार कर रही होती है और इस तरह यह जलसा पूरे 4 या उससे भी ज़्यादा दिन के लिए इसी तरह चलता रहता है”

उपरोक्त दृश्य की परिकल्पना मात्र ही आनंदमय लगती है। उस ज़माने की बात ही कुछ और थी। उम्मीद है आपको ये सब पढ़कर अच्छा लगा होगा। हम आगे भी कुछ ऐसे त्योहारों के बारे में आपको बताएँगे। कैसी लगी आपको हमारी ये पेशकश, हमें कमेंट्स में लिखकर ज़रूर बताएं। तब तक के लिए खम्मा घणी।

Forum Purple Run’19:

We Udaipurites shop and always have a tremendous time at the Forum Celebration Mall. Now, it’s our turn to make our mark present in Udaipur’s history as well, history to create awareness about this common yet unknown disease: Alzheimer’s. It’s time to make it real BIG by participating in Forum Purple Run’19. Everyone can be part of such a noble cause.

It is India’s first-ever run organized by renowned Forum Group, for creating awareness about Alzheimer’s disease. The main aim is to create awareness, sensitivity, and dignity towards this disease.

Now let us understand what Alzheimer’s is:

It is a syndrome which is associated with the decline of brain functioning specifically amongst the people aged 50 or above. It majorly affects the memory storing capacity, thinking, logical skills and other mental abilities.

The exact cause of this disease is not yet known, still, several factors are thought to increase your risk of developing this disease.

These include:

  • Growing old,
  • Hereditary conditions,
  • Depressions, and many more.

Various Stages of Alzheimer’s disease:

•Stage 1: Normal Outward Behavior

When your loved one is in this early phase, he won’t have any symptoms that’ll show that they have got Alzheimer’s. But as they move into the further stages, you will see major changes in their thinking and reasoning.

•Stage 2: Very Mild Changes

You still might not notice major changes, but they might be picking up on small differences. This could include forgetting a word or misplacing objects.

•Stage 3: Mild Decline

At this point that you may start to notice changes in the patient’s thinking.

•Stage 4: Moderate Decline

During this time, the problems in their thinking and reasoning that you noticed in the stage get more obvious. They might forget important details about themselves.

Though Alzheimer’s has no cure as such, treatments for symptoms are still available and research to find a cure continues. Current Alzheimer’s treatments cannot stop this disease from progressing, but they can temporarily slow the worsening of the symptoms and improve quality of life. Today, there is a worldwide effort under experiment to find better ways to treat the disease, delay the disease’s onset, and prevent it from developing further.
