Nathdwara is an important pilgrim center which is visited regularly by a large number of devotees from all over India, especially from Gujrat and Rajasthan. It is located on Delhi-Ahamdabad National Highway No. 8 and thus has good linkages with important towns of Rajasthan and Gujrat. Due to its religious significance, town is linked directly by long route bus-services. The temple of Shri nath ji was established in the year 1672 and initially town development, was centred around the temple. But due to lack of planned development, the roads are practically lanes.
Nathdwara town is regularly visited by more than 1000 pilgrims daily which provides main source of economy to the people of the town. The town is located on N.H.8 and a large number of through traffic on Delhi-Ahamdabad route passes on it. The town is growing is growing rapidly at a rate of 2.4 percent per year. But the condition in Nathdwara town is not better as the roads are not properly maintained and provided with proper street lighting and other street furnitures.
The town is surrounded by hills alaround and therefore, the land development for housing is not possible at individual level. The Municipal Board, Nathdwara does not have enough financial resources to take up the implementation of comprehensive development schemes for residential purposes. Under the conditions, there is an acute housing shortage in the town. There is also encroachment on available open public lands in the form of Kutchi Basties. There is also lack of organized planned shopping areas in the town. All these problems leave a bad impression on the visitors to this holy town.
