The city of Jhalawar has quite an interesting history to boast of. Jhalawar is named after the former rulers of Jhalawar, the Jhala Rajputs. Jhala Zalim Singh I, the then Dewan of Kota state (1791 AD) founded the city of Jhalawar. Surrounded with thick forests and wild animals, his area once served as the hunting grounds of Zalim Singh I. Fascinated by this place, he decided to develop it into a township. There was another reason for developing this place as a military cantonment. The reason was to attack and stop Maratha invaders, passing through here, from moving towards Kota to capture Hadoti states.

Read on this Jhalawar city guide to get more information about this small township:

British got Jhalawar separated from the Kota state in 1838 AD. Thereafter, it was handed over to Jhala Madan Singh, the grandson of Jhala Zalim Singh, who became the first ruler of Jhalawar state. It was Madan Singh only who, while residing in Jhalra Patan, got the construction work of the Garh Palace started. Madan Singh was succeeded by Jhala Prithvi Singh, who ruled the state for around 30 years. However most of the developmental work in the state took place under the rule of Rana Bhawani Singh Ji, who ruled from 1899 to 1929 AD.

The city of Jhalawar in Rajasthan, India is situated in the southeastern region of the state at the edge of the Malwa plateau. The landscape of the township is rocky, but water-laden and fertile. Jhalawar travel and tourism is famous not for its rich history, but also for a rich natural wealth. Pre-historic cave paintings, massive forts, thickly wooded forests and exotic wildlife are some of the major attractions of the city. Then, there is the Jhalawar Fort with some of the most exquisite wall paintings and mirror work. Also worth seeing is the museum with a rich collection on display, along with the Bhawani Natya Shala, a theater dating back to the 1920s.
