Religions In Rajasthan

Religion has always played a very important role in the lives of Rajasthan people right from medieval times. Numerous religions practiced by Indians can sometimes bewilder the visitor but a general understanding and tolerance has always existed and accounted for the surprised cultural unity that has kept the Rajasthan spirit alive.

What is true for the rest of India is true for Rajasthan as well as. Hinduism is followed by a majority of population, though religions like Islam, Christianity, Sikhism and Jainism etc find due representation here.

Rajasthan also has its share of myths and folklore. Several folk heroes are worshipped and one can see hundreds of simple shrines in every village. Stones are painted and established in tiny temples under trees and near wells. Folk heroes like Pabuji, Gogaji, Baba Ramdeo, Harbhuji and Mehaji are revered. All forms of nature are worshipped and every field has its own local deity.Some of the major temples and important religious centres like Pushkar, Nathdwara, Deshnok, Amer exist in Rajasthan.

Jainism

Mahavir stressed on the practice of non-violence.The Jains have built some of the most exquisite temples in Ranakpur, Mount Abu, Shri Mahavirji, Osian, Jaisalmer, Chittaurgarh and other parts of Rajasthan.
