Bharatpur City

Bharatpur is an ancient city of eastern Rajasthan. Its history dates from the era of the great Indian epic Mahabharata (approximately 1500 BC). But more interestingly, Bharatpur was the only kingdom in Rajasthan that was ruled by the Jats, the peasant stock of Haryana. The Jats rose into prominence in the 17th and 18th centuries and proved to be quite a fighting force. So for the first time in Rajput-ruled Rajasthan, we get a taste of Jat architecture.

The Lohargarh Fort in Bharatpur is a superb example, so are the forts at Kumher and Wiir.
