Bhangarh Palace Alwar- Rajasthan
Bhangarh Palace Alwar- Rajasthan

One of the oldest kingdoms of Rajasthan, Alwar is said to derive its original name Salwapur courtsey a tribe by the name of Salwa. Salwapur was later modified to Salwar which finally metamorphed into Alwar. From the days when it was a part of the Matsya kingdom to present, Alwar has commanded a distinct importance for itself. The pages of history are replete with stories that tell the tales of erstwhile power fighting out with each other to gain control of the region.

Today, Alwar has preserved its old world charm and combined it with more contemporary taste of the tourists. A palace complex with a museum, a fort, lakes, cenotaphs and an immensely famous wildlife sanctuary in close vicinity makes Alwar a hotspot for tourists. Away from the rushing life of a big city, Alwar takes tourists back into a time when things drifted at a leisurely pace. So apart from unmetred auto rickshaws and cycle rickshaws, there are tongas to take tourists round the city.

The location amidst Aravalli ranges add to the mystic charm of the city. The rhythmic notes of nature when the trees sway in the direction of wind and when the birds chirp in the morning infuse a delightful sense of relaxation.

In brief, Alwar has everything that a visitor can ask for - historical and cultural heritage combined with a freshning natural beauty.
