Long Distance Code:
The district is wild and rugged, situated at the foothills of Aravali. The terrain though fairly open in the south and east is interspersed with stony slopes covered with low jungle of cactus, and salar (Bosewellia servatta, gun producing tree.) Shrubs and other trees requiring no water or moisture are a common sight here. Towards the north and the east the country is rugged and wild, but towards the south west border the harsh features gradually turn softer.
The district is named after the capital of the former princely state of Dungarpur. Dungar means a hill or a mountain and pur means town. Thus Dungarpur means a hill town. Rawal Veer Singh Dev took over this part of the state from the Bhill chieftain Dungaria and laid the foundation of the city as well as the old palace on 14th October, 1282 A.D.
Dungarpur is famous for its particular style of architecture. The palaces of the Dungarpur princes and the residence of the noble ones are adorned by stone Jharokas and a new style of Jharokas which was developed by Maharawal Shiv Singh reign (1730 -1785 A.D.) The goldsmiths of Dungarpur are well known for their lacquer painted toys and picture frames.
