About Alwar in Rajasthan

The gateway to Rajasthan, Alwar is one of the oldest Cities of Rajasthan treasuring a reservoir of culture and heritage that lend to its historical importance.

Within its periphery lies the royal booty of the era, dating back to the time of Mahabharata, when in 1500 BC, Alwar was a part of the Matsya territories of Viratnagar.

The city is said to be formed by the Kachh family of Amber. The pages of history narrate a relation between the Britishers and the Rajputs who were constantly fighting to win over Alwar and its strategic geographic and historic importance. The city came back to peace in the 18th century under the Rajput ruler Pratap Singh, who was a huge patron of art and culture. Under his rule, Alwar became a major cultural centre of western India.
