Jhalawar - The Destination

Jhalawar Fort

Jhalawar, in Rajasthan, is a charming mosaic of interwoven enigmas awaiting answers. It is a rock-strewn, scrub-covered land, occasionally brightened with fields of poppies and citrus-green groves of oranges.

The 19th century saw a lot of development in the town. It was given to the prime minister of the kingdom of Kota, Madan Singh Jhala. An enterprising man, he invited some of the richest families of the region to come and settle here. This turned the ancient garrison into a bustling  town  and  soon  it  became  the  principal market town of the

south-east region. Not only did the economy boom, Jhalawar also became the first Indian town to have a municipality. This was quite an exceptional characteristic in a town that was still in a completely feudal land.

The region is known for opium production and the farms having blossoms of poppy flowers in winters. The state patronized music and drama in the early years and the presence of Bhawani Natyashala, a reputed theater in those times, bears testimony to this fact. Renowned ballet performer Late Uday Shankar hailed from the court of Jhalawar only. Several government offices today occupy the Garh Palace in the center of the town; the frescoes in many chambers are still impressive.

A relaxed town, Jhalawar is worth a day trip from Kota. Ironically though, the region has too many attractions to be covered in a day trip.

History of Jhalawar

The princely state of the Jhalas, Jhalawar was created in 1838 A.D., after being separated from Kota by the British. Remarkable contributions from various rulers including Zalim Singh I made it a culturally rich state. Lying in the southeastern region of Rajasthan at the edge of the Malwa plateau, Jhalawar has a rocky but water-laden fertile landscape, unlike much of Rajasthan. With some exquisite pre-historic cave paintings, massive forts, thickly wooded forests and exotic wildlife variety, Jhalawar boasts of rich historic as well as natural wealth. One can spot countless species of birds as one drives past the lush countryside. Red poppy fields and orange laden orchards make the countryside all the more fascinating and colourful during winters. The area around Bhawani Mandi is known for contributing a major share to the production of citrus in the country.
