Chandrabhaga Fair, Jhalawar

SIGHTSEEING

Jhalawar Fort :
Located in the heart of the town, this fort presently houses the Collectorate and other district offices. Of particular interest are the exquisite paintings and mirrors on the walls of Zanana Khas. In order to see these paintings one has to take permission from the offices located here.

Bhawani Natya Shala :
This is the most unusual theatre in India which was constructed in 1921 AD where Parsi plays used to be conducted. Recently, the old building has been renovated and offers an excellent insight into the art of theatre.

Chandrabhaga Fair :
It is held every year at Jhalarapatan 6-km from Jhalawar in the month of Kartik (October-November). The river Chandrabhaga meanders through this place and is considered holy by the people residing in this part of Rajasthan. During the fair, devotees bathe in the holy waters at a place known as Chandravati.

Gagron Fort :
Built over several centuries (8th to 14th century AD), the Gagron Fort stands impressively at Jhalawar. Encircled by the placid waters of the Ahu and Kali Sindh rivers on the three sides, the fort witnessed various great battles. There is an amazing mausoleum of Sufi Saint Mithe Shah just outside the fort which hosts an annual colorful fair held during the month of Moharram.

Government Museum :
Established in 1915 AD, Government Museum is one of the oldest museums of Rajasthan and houses a fine collection of paintings, rare manuscripts, idols and beautiful statues of Lakshminarayan, Vishnu, Krishna, Ardhanarishwar Natraj and Trimurti.
