Kanore – The Mewari Land of Paan, Knives and Lotus

History of Kanore

Kanore was established by Rawat Ajja Singh Ji who was the first Thakur of Kanore. Rawat Ajja Singh Ji was the son of Maharana Lakha Singh Ji (1382 – 1421).

There are many theories behind the name of town ‘Kanore’. The first one is that there was a lady monk known as ‘Kani Meeni’, who used to pray there to achieve salvation. During this phase of hers, she achieved divine powers. The town was named as ‘Kanore’ after this holy lady. The second theory is that the town had a large number of devotees of Krishna. Thus, after the name of Krishna, the town was named as Kanore.

Rawat Yogendra Singh Ji | Current Rawat Saheb of Kanore

But according to Rawat Yogeshwar Singh Ji, who is the 20th Rawat Saheb of Kanore since 2011, ‘When Maharana Ajja Singh Ji came to Kanore, there was a Bheel lady who owned a hut at the place. To establish the town, Maharana told her to remove her hut. The lady agreed but only on one condition. The condition was that the town would be named after her and from then on, the town became famous from the name Kanore.’

 

What is Kanore famous for?

Kanore is located at a distance of about 75 km from Udaipur in the southern region of Rajasthan. Since it is at the border of tribal caste majority area, in the earlier times, it was a very less educated region. Then a saint known as Acharya Shri Jawaharcharya inspired Mewad Malviya Pt Udai Jain to build a university here and he did exactly so with the name ‘Jawahar Vidhyapeeth’ and this evolved the education in the entire South Rajasthan. Jawahar Vidyapeeth became the educational center for Southern Rajasthan. This entire episode gave rise to a new name of Kanore which is ‘Shiksha Nagari’.

Few Lines have been written in the appraisal of Kanore by ancient poets during the monarchical era:

Pan Parkha wala Nipje,

Chaku he Bejod,

Kamal Khile, Khokha Vane,

Ya Sursat ri Kanore

The above poem about Kanore boasts about the agriculture of betel leaves (Paan) in Kanore. It is said that no one was able to farm betel leaves even around 1 km near Kanore and it was only cultivated in Kanore in ancient times. The Paan of Kanore was so famous that people from America came all the way to the town just to taste the paan here. Yogeshwar Singh Ji says that Mohanlal Sukhadiya, Former Chief Minister of Rajasthan, used to come here regularly especially to have the paan of Kanore.

Kanore is also famous for its knives and the lotus ponds which can be spotted at every 2 km there.

Kanore Palace

Kanore Palace, situated in the middle of Kanore, belongs to the royal family of the Kanore. The construction of the Palace was begun by Maharawat Sarangdev II in 1711 AD. It is said that the artisans who made the City Palace of Udaipur were the same who made the Kanore palace of Kanore. This is the reason why Kanore Palace is a replica of the City Palace. Although, the size of the City Palace is a bit larger. Just like the City Palace of Udaipur, parts of Kanore Palace were also made by different rulers during their respective reign.

The architecture of the Palace reflects the Rajputana style. It has three major portions which are –
