Welcome to Jhalawar

Jhalawar was once the capital of a small princely state created in 1838 by Zalim Singh, the charismatic regent of Kota. Singh signed a treaty with the British on behalf of the young Kota prince, and in return received Jhalawar for his descendants to rule in their own right – his fort and palace still dominate the centre of Jhalawar.

The town is situated at the centre of an opium-producing region, evidence of which you’ll see during winter, when the fields are carpeted with picturesque pink and white poppies.
