Located 67 km North of the now popular destination wedding city of Udaipur, is the small town of Rajsamand. It got the name from the eponymous Rajsamand lake which is the second largest man-made lake in the world. Apart from the renowned historical edifices of Kumbhalgarh and Haldighati, the place also holds religious importance for different sects.
This is where the temple of Shrinathji stands, who was the chief deity of the Vaishnav community. Dwarakadhish temple believed to have a miraculous idol is also located in Rajsamand. The famous temple of Lord Vishnu with four hands (Charbhuja) is also situated here. Many temples dedicated to Lord Shiva can also be found here.
Rajsamand is most famous for its marble craft, and it is the single largest marble producing unit and district in the country. The district also holds the rare and laudable distinction of having a male-female ratio of 1:1.
