Alwar holidays

Alwar is placed between a cluster of small hills of the Aravalli range. Perched on the most prominent of these hills is a massive ancient fort that whispers tales of the rich Delhi. The people of the state did not accept any external interference and resisted foreign invasions. In the 12th and 13th centuries they raided Delhi, but finally Sultan Bulban (1267 – 1287) suppressed them, bringing the area under the Muslims rule. In 1771 Maharaja Pratap Singh, a Kachhawa Rajput belonging to the clan of Jaipur’s rulers, won back Alwar and founded a principality of his own. The city has a rich natural heritage as well as some beautiful lakes and picturesque valleys, thickly wooded in parts. A wide variety of birds and animals can be seen here. Alwar has one of the finest wild life sanctuaries in Rajasthan-Sarika.
