Jhalawar, Rajasthan

Been there recently?

Founded in 1791 by Jhala Zalim Singh, who was a minister of a nearby princely state, the place was named after him. It was developed as a township and later became a princely state on its own. The township blossomed into a beautiful city replete with royal palaces, forts, havelis, and gardens. The monuments stand as a legacy of the support given to arts and culture by the then rulers. The place was thick forest with 2 rivers merging nearby when Zalim Singh decided to build a township. The forests are all gone, but the monuments that remain tell a definitive story of the Jhalawar princely state. If you are a tourist with a liking for an offbeat location that is famous for historic and religious places, then Jhalawar is one such place. September to April is a great time to visit Jhalawar. The city is approximately 340 kilometres from Jaipur and about 90 kilometres from Kota. Jhalawar is well connected by rail. Indore is the nearest airport, about 240 kilometres away, whereas Jaipur too has an airport.
