HISTORY OF CITY

 HISTORY OF HADDOTI   

 
                             Gods have been very kind to the land of Hadoti. They have blessed it with life giving water of Chambal river and lots of bright sunshine. Many of the tributaries of Chambal run through deep gorges and high rise mud walls gurgling falls and pebbled ruffles. Their turquoise blue water provides sustenance to jade green forests and bountiful crops. The region of Hadoti derives its name from Hada rulers, who trace their ancestry to Chahuman Rajput clan. The great civilizations were born in the lap of river valleys and likewise the Chambal river valley and its many tributaries were cradle of an early civilization, which has left its indelible marks in the form of cave shelters and cave paintings, which are supposedly as old as 25000 years. We find a rare continuity in the history of the region, as a number of excavated mounds have yielded copper, iron and terracotta artifacts, stone jewellery, terracotta beads, red earthenware, seal and coins, belonging to very early history of the mankind.

 

 

  KOTA CITY

 

               History Of Kota: The history of the city dates back to the 12th century A.D. when the Hada Chieftain, Rao Deva, conquered the territory and founded Bundi and Hadoti. Later, in the early 17th century AD during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir, the ruler of Bundi -Rao Ratan Singh, gave the smaller principality of Kota to his son, Madho Singh. Since then Kota became a hallmark of the Rajput gallantry and culture.

The south eastern region of Rajasthan known as Hadoti comprises of Bundi, Baran, Jhalawar and Kota is a treasure of history dating back to several centuries. Prehistoriccaves,paintings,formidable forts and the mighty chambal river hurtling from the Vindhyas are dotted in the region. When Jait Singh of Bundi defeated the Bhil Chieftain Koteya in a battle, he raised the first battlement or the 'Garh'(fort) over his severead head. The Independant state of kota became a reality in 1631 when Rao Madho Singh, the second son of Rao Ratan of Bundi was made the ruler, by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Soon Kota outgrew its parent state to become bigger in area, richer in revenue and more powerful. Maharao Bhim Singh played a pivotal role in Kota's history, having held a 'Mansab' of five thousand and being the first in his dynasty to have the title of Maharao.

Situtated on the banks of the Chambal River,at an important juncture of the trade route between Delhi and Gujrat, Kota is Rjasthan's Fifth Largest City. This Bustling,sprawling city is also called the industrial capital of the state. The tentacles of the modern world have the city in its grip with the Chambal Valley Project giving it a major position on the state's industrial map. Chemicals,fertilizers, synthetic fibres, tyrecord and sophisticated instruments, industry's mainstay, have helped in pushing this ancient city into the forefront of modernisation. Yet memories of its ancient links linger strongly. Present Day Kota owes its foundations to a Kotya Bhil warrior who 800 years ago built a small fortification at akelgarh and put up a protective mud-wall around it all the way to Retwali. In 1580, Rao Madho Singh strenghtened both the fortification and the wall. In time to come, Kota acquired the Hallmark of rajput power as well as culture.

There are wooded hills and valleys that provide shelter to a large variety of wildlife of Rajesthan. One can visit Sitabari - a beautiful picnic spot dotted with old temples of Sita and Laxman beside seven water tanks. Sitabari is also venue for a tribal fair held in the months of May/June in Baran city of Rajesthan

 

HBundi Fortistory Of Bundi:

Bundi is a town with a small-town character despite its 100.000 inhabitants. The town is surrounded by hills and inside the town-wall there are very few cars which makes the place more relaxed. Of cause you'll find cycles, auto-rickshaws, motorcycles and cows, it's India! People are very nice and friendly and when you hear "Hello" it usually means just hello, not that everybody is trying to sell something like in many other places.

History of Jhalawar Rajasthan

The city of Jhalawar was founded by Jhala Zalim Singh (First), who was the then Dewan of Kota state (1791 A.D.). He established this township, then known as Chaoni Umedpura, as a cantonment. The township was surrounded with dense green forests and wild animals. Jhala Zalim Singh often came here for hunting and he liked the place so much that he wanted to develop it as a township. The objective to develop this place as a military cantonment was due to the fact that Maratha invaders passed through this central place from Malwa towards Kota to capture Hadoti states.

HISTORY of Jhalawar, Jhala Zalim Singh

Legendary Jhala Zalim Singh recognized the importance of this place and started to develop it as a military cantonment and township, so that he could use this place to attack and stop Maratha invaders before they can reach to Kota state. Chaoni Umedpura got developed as a cantonment and township around 1803-04 A.D. Colonel Todd, who visited the region in December, 1821 described this area as the cantonment established by Jhala Zalim Singh plus a well-established township with large houses, havelis, and surrounding walls. In 1838 A.D., English rulers seperated Jhalawar state from Kota state and gave it to Jhala Madan Singh, the grandson of Jhala Zalim Singh. He developed his administration services to develop the state of Jhalawar. He resided in Jhalara Patan for a long time and started to build The Garh Palace (1840 - 1845 A.D.). He was the first ruler of Jhalawar state and made his great contribution in the history of Jhalawar. Jhala Madan Singh ruled Jhalawar from 1838 to 1845. After his death, Jhala Prithvi Singh became the ruler of Jhalawar, and ruled for around 30 years. Rana Bhawani Singh Ji, who ruled Jhalawar state from 1899 to 1929 A.D., did remarkable work in the development of Jhalawar state. His active involvement was in the fields of social activities, public works (construction), education, administration, etc. During his time, a number of genius personalities of Jhalawar gave their active hand in these activities.
