Rajasthan is home to numerous rural destinations, where one can explore manifold indigenous communities’ stark indigenous culture, heritage, and traditions. However, we are here to talk of one such tribal community- popularly known as the Bhil tribe. 

The tribal community residing here shows us another side of the royal Udaipur. Nestled in the verdant environs of the Aravalli Ranges, this hamlet is inhabited by the Bhils. Unexposed to the waves of urbanization, Bhil village still stays true to its old-school roots. 

How? 

The Udaipur Bhils adorn the walls of their huts and temples with imagery of the Gods, flowers, animals, and birds. They call these wall paintings mandno. Bhil mandno is stylized line drawings that they have been creating since 1984. They are staunch believers in their culture and tribal artistry and leave no stone unturned to carry on the legacy of their ancestors. 

Having minimal outreach to the urban world outside, this unspoiled hermit is a world in itself! 

The Aravalli in the Udaipur district cradles countless rivers and creeks and has a rich biodiversity. Since ancient times, the ancestors of the Bhils have been conserving and managing the forests based on their tribal customary laws. 

Speaking of its organic charm, the rustic elegance and tranquillity are an excellent foil to the urban spaces of the city, and a foray into tribal Udaipur can be an exceedingly enchanting experience. 

So, city folks, do yourself this favor!
