Sirohi district is in the shape of an irregular triangle.
A large part of the district is a vast semi desert. Plain, marked
by isolated hills and chains of hillocks forming the eastern fringes
of the Thar Desert. The north-eastern, south-western trending Aravali
ranges bound it on the east. Abu Sirohi range divides the district
in to two parts.
Detached hills of the Aravali range are situated in the south -
east of the central portion of this district. Mount Abu is situated
at about 1219 meters above sea level and is built on an irregular
plateau, which is surrounded by several projecting peaks and ridges.
Another important plateau is Oriya in Abu Road block, which is at
a distance of about eight kms from Mount Abu station and it is 152
meters higher than Mount Abu, and lies below the main peak of 'Guru
Sikhar’, which is 1722 meters above the mean sea level and
is the highest point between the Himalayas and Nilgiris. East of
the Abu hills, across the valley of Banas, is the tract known as
Bhakar, which consists of successive ranges of steep and rugged
hills of no great height.
Jawai is the largest and longest of the rivers of north - east,
which eventually join Luni. It rises in the Aravali hills and after
flowing through various villages' forms the boundary between Pali
and Sirohi districts. Western Banas is the most important river
of the district draining almost all the area east of Abu - Sirohi
range in Pindwara and Abu Road blocks. No natural lake exists in
