It is not on the record as how the name of Bhilwara was ascribed to the which now
forms the district Bhilwara. Tradition has it that it came to be known as Bhilwara
because it was mostly inhabited by Bhils in old days. These Bhils were eventually
driven away towards the hilly tracts and interior places of less importance by the
ancestors of the peasant settlers. Ironically enough ,now very few Bhils live in
this area. Another version recounts that the present Bhilwara city had a mint where
coins known as 'BHILADI' were minted and from this denomination was derived the
name of the district. Over the years it has emerged out as the TEXTILE CITY of Rajasthan.
Now a days ,Bhilwara is better known as the textile city in the country.
