The Ahar Udaipur Heritage Walk tells the story of the days gone by that continue to influence our living. Ahar is one of the largest rural Bronze Age sites of Ahar-Banas Culture of South Rajasthan. It is represented by various stone structures, hearths, copper and bronze objects.
The walk will begin at the Ahar Mound, recollecting the history of the great culture dating back to the Bronze Age of the Indus Valley Civilisation. It will then proceed to the Royal Cenotaphs (Mahasatya Ji), one of the largest cenotaph complexes located among the other Medieval Rajput cenotaphs covering an area of 3.02 hectare. The walk will continue through various walk spots, including Gangaudbhav Kund, which means the place of origin of the holy river Ganga; Bhaktimati Meera Temple, a 10th century temple famous for its elevated plinth with intricate carvings and continuous panel of sculptures; Ahar Jain Temple; and a temple of Shantinatha. Given that this Heritage Walk is an initiative to further protect and promote crafts and folk art of Ahar, it will conclude with a visit to the traditional musical instrument shops where traditional tie-and-die craftsmen inhabit and keep the past alive through their music.
This guided tour is free.
