The royal family of Garhi Sawai Ram initially came in this part of the country from a place called Narwar near Gwalior a big city in central India. In the mid 17th century around 1655 Shri Mukund Das Ji son of RamKumar Ji rose in prominence and constructed a fort on the top of a hill and started ruling from this fort. This fort known as the ‘fort garhi’ today.
