About Alwar

History of Alwar

During the British reign in India, Alwar not just a city but also a princely state ruled by the valorous Rajput kings of Rajasthan – historical records testify that a number of Rajput rulers have had their say on Alwar, after Maharaja Alaghraj ascension to the throne in 1000 A.D. The city underwent the same tumult that other parts of India had to face, during the course of the Indian National Movement – it acceded unto the newly formed Indian dominions in 1947 with the declaration of India’s independence. In May 1949, Alwar became a part of a historical experiment in which some princely states of Western India were united with each other – this gave rise to the state of Rajasthan that we know at present.
