  2. 2. MAHAL KHAS PALACE "If Rajasthan is the Jewel in the Crown of India, the Bharatpur of this state is its Hidden Jewel" Once the seat of power of the Rajasthan Jats, Bharatpur was once surrounded by an 11-Km long wall (now demolished) which acted as the first line of defense. The Jats maintained a high degree of autonomy, because of their prowess in battle. You can very well feel their velour after a visit to Lohagarh or the Iron Fort, which dominates the skyline of this beautiful town.

  4. 4. GLORIOUS HISTORY OF BHARATPUR FROM 1635 TO 1949 Bharatpur – The “Eastern Gateway to Rajasthan”, and Lohagarh Fort were built by Maharaja Suraj Mal in 1733 A.D. The Lohagarh Fort, true to its name stood solidly in the face of many British attacks, frosted them to ends. It faced the British onslaught four times and after a long siege they had to withdraw. It is very different from the other forts in the state, there is no flamboyance associated to fort but it generates an aura of strength and magnificence. The fort is surrounded with moat which was previously filled with water to ward off the enemy attacks. The main entrance of this grand fort is the “Ashtadhatu Gate”. Ashtadhatu means eight metals. This north facing imposing gateway with huge rounded bastions and paintings of war elephants carry a unique history. Originally it belonged to the Chittorgarh which was taken to Delhi by Alauddin Khilji. The victorious Jats tore it down from the walls of imperial Delhi during their attack in 1764 and brought it back with them to Bharatpur .
