princely state if 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 south-eastern region of Rajasthan at
the edge of the Malwa plateau, Jhalawar has rocky but water-laden
verdant 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 colorful during winters.
The area around Bhawani Mandi is known for contributing a major
share to the production of citrus in the country.
