About this Place
50 kms. on the Bundi-Chittaurgarh road, in Bhilwara district, is the old
fort and city of Bijolia. In ancient times it was known as Vindhyavali.
During the Chauhan period, it became a famous centre for art and
architecture. Several beautiful Shiva temples were constructed by the
Chauhan rulers on this place. Most of the temples have either disappeared
or are in ruins today. On the eastern side of the town near the city wall,
there are three beautiful temples. Prominent amongst them is Hajaresvara
Mahadeva temple. It has a high linga surrounded by hundreds of small
lingas and hence called Hajaresvara or Sahastralinga. The temples of
Mahakala and Baijnath are also well known. The temple of Undeshwar
Mahadeva is also well known. Near by Mandakini Kund is a holy water tank.
Bijolia inscription dating back V.E. 1226 is very important because it
through a new light on the early history of the Chauhan dynasty.
