A.D.1611 : Kishangarh – where every inch of land was conquered by a brave lineage of kings; who after many a glorious battle and heroic sacrifices, established their kingdom.
A.D.1649 : Roopangarh – they made it their Capital. For a hundred years, it became a town of unparralled grace a Roopanagar which literally means a ‘city of beauty’. Roopangarh Fort became the hub of activity. Within its nine turreted fortification were made foundries, armouries,granaries, secret passages, jails and step-wells. Adjacent to the ‘charbhuja’ (4 towered fortification) nestled the palaces, delicated and fragile. The beauty of living was transcribed to a refined architecture in the form of large audience halls, incredibly high ceilings, wide doors and casements as if the inhabitants drank nothing but the exhilarating breeze.
