About karauli

the town of Karauli was founded in 1348 by another Yaduvanshi Rajput, Maharaja Arjun Dev Yadav. The town was strategically located to ensure natural defense. To the north and east of the town are ravines while a huge wall was built on all other sides, to protect it from charging armies.

Around 23km from Karauli is the massively popular temple of Kaila Devi.There were countrywide wars in India during Mughal period after Mahabharat. One strategy was to get to know the status and powers of the enemy in advance, to keep the invaders off their territory and to keep them engaged and to know and understand their plans, a squad of specially trained warriors was used to be sent which was known as “Karawul” or “Karaul” in Persian.
