Girwa is a tehsil of Udaipur district, Rajasthan, India.[2] The administrative headquarter of the tehsil is located in the City of Udaipur.[2]


Before the formation of the Republic of India, the territory of present-day Girw tehsil was part of the former Udaipur State.[3] With the formation of the United State of Rajasthan (precursor to the state of Rajasthan) in 1948, the new district of Udaipur was constituted which included the territory of present-day Badgaon tehsil.[3]
