About Jhalawar

Jhalawar, once called Brijnagar is known for its rich natural wealth of vibrant flora and fauna. However, unlike other cities of Rajasthan, Jhalawar has a rocky but water-laden verdant landscape. Red poppy fields and orange laden orchards are strewn across Jhalawar, lending it a colourful look. They also contribute a major share to the production of citrus in the country.

The princely state of the Jhalas, Jhalawar was created in 1838 AD after being separated form Kota by the British. Remarkable contributions from various ruler including Zalim Singh I made it a culturally rich state. Lying in the south eastern region of Rajasthan at he edge of the Malwa plateau, Jhalawar has rocky but water-laden verdant landscape, unlike much of Rajasthan.
