Languages of Rajasthan

People speak different languages in Rajasthan. Although Hindi is the main language of the state, you will find people speaking in different dialects. The four main dialects spoken in the state are Marwari, Jaipuri, Malvi and Mewati.

Marwari is one of the popular dialects spoken in Rajasthan. In the western part of the state, most of the people speak Marwari. People in and around Jodhpur, Pali, Udaipur and Ajmer communicate in Marwari.

Jaipuri, also known as Dhundhari is the second most popular dialect and is spoken in the east and south-east regions of the state. Dhundhari is spoken in Jaipur, Ajmer, Kota, Tonk and Jhalawar.

Malvi is yet another dialect spoken in the southeast region of the state and in Chittorgarh, Udaipur and Bilwara you will find people communicating in Mewati, which is another popular dialect.

People also speak other dialects such as Shekhawati, Bagri, Harauti, Wagri and Kishangarhi. Sansiboli, Goaria, Loarki, Dhatki, Thali, Gade Romany, Lohar, Gujari and Nimadi are the other less known dialects spoken in Rajasthan.

Apart from these dialects, English is widely spoken in the state. Since Rajasthan is a popular tourist state in western India, you will find guides conversing in different foreign languages such as French, German, Japanese and Chinese.
