Rural Home & Camp Stay(Proposed)

  1. 1. TAIN (टाँई) Picture of Tain Fort BRIEF HISTORY: In 1730 Jhunjhunu was seized by the great Rajput warrior Sardul Singh (ruled 1730-42) after the death of the ruling Nawab Rohella khan.Rohella khan and his predecessors, the kayamkhani nawabs were governors of Jhunjhunu and Fatehpur and owed allegiance to the Mughal Emperors at Delhi. Sardul Singh was a diwan (minister) in Rohella khan’s court and as such getting the reins of Jhunjhunu was easy. Jhunjhunu lorded by Maharao Sardul Singh was the richest and most happening thikana (estate) of the painted region of Shekhawati. After Sardul’s death the estate was divided equally amongst his five surviving sons-Zorawar singh, Kishen singh, Akhey singh, Nawal Singh and Keshri Singh. Jhunjhunu thus came to be known as the panch pana-the five estates.Akhey died without leaving a heir.Zorawar inherited Tain, Gangiyasar and Malsisar;
  2. 2. Kishen got Khetri and Alsisar; Nawal founded Nawalgarh and Mandawa and Keshri Bissau and Dundlod.The Thakurs of every village in the region covered by Panchpana were all descended from one or the other of these men. ‘Tain’, now a village connected to the main road by a metalled road, this was a flourishing town in the early part of the nineteenth century. It was founded by Thakur Salem Singh (Grandson of Maharao Sardul Singh) around 1745 and was an estate (Jagir) of 12 villages. The construction of the fort began in 1761 and the fort was completed in 1769, a square structure with four corner bastions. This town was one of the several that fell within Shyam Singh of Bissau’s orbit and was notorious for dacoities and banditry. With the result that Shekhawati Brigade commanded by British Major Forster sliced the fort in 1837 where upon Bissau family took away the great gates for their own fort. Only two bastions remained with gate in a poor state of repairs. Near the fort is a kothi {Mansion} built by shri Moti Singh Karnawat (Musahib of Tain Thikana) in 1846 which is beautifully painted with frescoes. Two bandits who became something of folk heroes known as BULJI-BHURJI were eventually hunted down in the territory of this village and shot by Bikaner forces around 1930. Equally famous are the ancient monastery of Monk Shri KESARNATHJI (Nath Sect) and the old temples & various samadhis of saints inside the premises. As legend has it, there is a tunnel right up to Deedwana (Marwar) through which monks used to pick up salt. There are traces of few jal trees from which as legend has it there used to be rain of sugar granules.
