In Indian mythology, Bhilwara is mentioned in Mahabharata, and it is said that Arjuna fought here when he went to Dwarika with all the Gopis during the Mahabharata period. The cultural history of Bhilwara can be traced back to the Nagar Brahmins mentioned in Skanda Purana. In ancient times, Bhilwara was part of the rulers of Guhil and Chouhan in the state. According to descriptions from ancient times, the city of Bhilwara is believed to have been discovered sometime in the 11th century, while a "Bhil" tribe built a shrine for Lord Shiva in the "Jataun ka Mandir" area. During the Mughal dynasty, Bhilwara was part of the Mewar Kingdom of the Shahpura Principality. The state of Mewar also established a Mint (Taksal) in Bhilwara, where coins called "BHILAI" were minted, from which the name of the area is derived. The state of Mewar and Shahpura Riyasat was merged into "Syunkt Rajasthan", and the district of Bhilwara was established in 1949.
