Historical Places

In Rajasthan’s South West Jalore is situated where Jal tree was founded in huge quantity.This was the sacred groove of sage Jabali. From defence point of view it was invincible.Historians believe that in vedic ages among the nine sons of Manu his fourth son established his kingdom here that came to be known as Anart. According to Dhundumara Ayodhya’s Ikshvashu king Kuvlasav defeated the local residents and brought under his control.There after Druh &Yadavas ruled here that remained till battle of Mahabharat.

Jalore is referred as a prosperous town mentioned in Kuvalyasava written in 8th Century.There were many temples and forts here.Then it was ruled by Prathiar king Vatsaraj. After Prathiars, parmar ruled here and remained till 12 th century It is said that towards the end of 10th century Malwa’s parmar ruler Mung captured Jalore and by 1117 A.D.visal parmar ruled here.The ancestors of visal were Dharavarsh, Vijjal Aparajit, Devraj Chandan and Vakpatiraj etc.

After Visal in 1664 A.D. Chalukya king Naresh Kumar Pal was enshrined.But there was animosity between Chalukyas’ of Gujarat and chouhan of Ajmer.That’s why chouhan King Vigraharaj IV while expanding his kingdom drawn Chalukyas out and Jalore became a part of chouhan kingdom.

In Jalore District Poet Magh’s birth place Bhinmal was also an important place of studies while Sundha Mata is naturally and religious unique place. Sevda’s Shiv temple is famous for its historical importance. District’s historical, religious and pilgrim temple are following-

Jalore Fort:

Pride & Prestige of Jalore is its fort that sings its own story of valor & strength.This fort is a property of State Government’s archeological department and a protected building since 1956.To go to Jalore fort one has to go through zig-zag roads of mid of town.

 

It is situated in south of Jalore 1200 feet over the mountains.A zig zag way leads to the fort upon the mountain where on each step the height goes on increasing.The first gate comes while climbing upward called Suraj Pole. Arch of this gate is of immense beauty. Here there are made small rooms where the security guards used to stay.To refrain from artillery firing a huge wall surrounds the gate from front.

This wall is around 25 feet high and 15 feet in width.After it walking for another half a mile second gate known as Dhruv Pole comes.This obstacle was also peculiar from defense point of view.Without winning this post , entry into the fort was negligible.

 

Third gate is called Chand Pole which is more grand, strong and beautiful from others.From here onwards the rampart that runs along the way on both sides is divided into many parts and conceals within it rounded surface of mountain and then expands.The place between third & fourth gates, Fourth gate is called Sire Pole. One part of the rampart before reaching there takes a left turn upwards and touches the highest part of the mountain and the second rampart moves towards right sick and while encircling mountain peals around it meets the first boundary.

The length of the fort is ¾ Km. and breadth is half a Kilo Meter.Presently there is palace of king Mansingh, two water reservoirs, one Shiv Temple, temple of goddesses Jogmaya, station of Viram Dev, three Jain temples shrine of Mallik Shah and One Mosque.

 

Among temples the temple of Parshavnath is the grandest of all.The idols sculpted on the walls in the back side of temple attracts visiters the most.

Moving from the four faced Jain Temple to the palace of Mansingh , one pillar of Parmar dynasty stands reserved on a small platform. Probably this is the only memorial of Parmars.The human height red stone’s pillar instantly speaks out the beauty of its artistic sculpting. Before many decades this pillar was found while cleaning a water reservoir that was situated here.

 

While entering the palace of Man Singh one big square meeting hall comes, whose right side is a hall.In this hall there is one broken and one big artillery machine is placed. Some artilleries could be found here and there in fort’s compound.Just down of Mansingh Palace towards general way are casements on height are good example of rock out. Two storyed queen palace is also there is this Palace.In its courtyard is one underground reservoir that is now not open for general public. In palace are found big storage houses that were used for storing foodgrains, Ghee etc. Behind the palace is the read to Shiv Temple . There is located one big ShivLing of white marble.From the backside of the temple the way leads towards water reservoir where there is a temple of goddesses Chamunda built. In this temple is found a inscription on which it is mentioned that war encircled king KanherDev was given magical sword by goddesses Bhagwati here.

 

The post of Viram Dev is situated on the highest of the mountain’s South East.From here scenes could be seen afar.The flag of Jalore was being flown here.A newly built mosque is nearby this post presently.During Independence struggle freedom fighters like Ganeshlal Vyas,Mathuradas Mathur,Fatehraj Joshi and Tulsidas Rathi were imprisoned here by Britishers.

Presently for any tourist a nominal Rs.2.00 and from students Rs.1.00 is charged as fee for visiting it. The way from panchayat samiti office towards Badi Pole leads straight towards it from Tilak Dwar also the straight way leads towards Topkhana.

In this school there is beautiful work on stone carved.On both flanks small temples are built where no idols are present now. Just in front of entrance gate is main structure built on whose strong pillars the roof is surviving.

 

Every pillars attracts visitors for hours of its tiny stone carvings. It is an example of the beauty of middle ages art.The engravings of flowers, chains, elephant, bells, vines and geometry. In the main premise one room is built 10 feet above earth in the right corner, stairs are built to lead there. This might probably be the seat of headmaster or teacher to teach students in large number.

There are 276 pillars in this building and speaks of its prosperity.While entering from the main gate on the left side is temple that might had Shivling in past.Now a days there are many idols left broken.In it Vishnu,Shiv Parvati, Ganesha and Varaha idols are peculiar.In the right side of school is flank, beautified by raw art.It is felt that its construction was continuous but because of some reasons it was left over.

Afterwards due to economic disruptions king Rana salji Dewal became a dacoit his army kept dacoiting in Marwar province.Hence Jodhpur ’s king Jaswant Singh attacked Lohiyana in 1883 A .D. and ravaged it and destroyed fort also.By his name town named Jaswantpura was settled.To rest during winter he built one rest house in mountains.This building is now left uncared, today also it is the private property of descendants of royal family of Jodhpur .

Fort of Kot Kasta:

65 Km . away from headquater Jalore and 20 Km from Sub Division Bhinmal this place kot kasta was once two villages named Kot & Kastha now known as unified Kot Kasta.In 1804 A .D. Mansingh ascended throne of Jodhpur and made Ayas Devnath his Guru.During Mansingh’s time influence of Yogis of nath community increased a lot.He also gave many Jagirs of Naths.Yogi Bheemnath was also given jagir near village Kasta. He was famous by the name Bheemnathji Maharaj on a hereby mountain one small fort was made surrounded it with defensive wall.

In building this wall mountain was also used as wall. Outside this fort’s boundary wall one big wall was also made, to enter those two big and two small gates were made.In this way nearby Kasta a village named Kot settled here.Village inside fort’s boundary wall was called Kot and outside it Kasta and jointly come to be known as Kot Kasta.

Nearly 200 years old this Naths fort consists of there storeyed palace rampart, tower and huge entry gate and many other construction could be found.From the twilight of sum fort could be seen from quiet a distance.Though small in size it is though beautiful and strong.In defensive walls there are place lift for firing artillery and gunfire.Being situated on mountain top artillery might have been huge success.In the valley of mountain there is flat ground and on the other side there being route of rainy river named Kapal Ganga it is not possible to attack it instantly.

On both sides of village’s walls its huge gates can be seen still today.Out of them condition of one is comparatively good this gate was used as main entry point to the village.By entering it and taking raw road towards mountain one could reach the huge gate of fort’s limit.

A stone could be seen half buried in the earth while moving ahead on the left side have on it a horse engraved with an umbrella on its back.From moving here onwards the stairs of the gate comes.Right side stairs leads directly towards main gate.On both sides of gate huge platforms are built.It is not easy to decipher one of the stone inscriptions struck on right rostrum.

Quila or Fort of Bhadrajun:

54 Km. away from district headquarter Bhadrajun is settled on Jalore-Jodhpur road.It gets it name from Subhadra and his husband Mahabhart’s brave hero Arjun.Subhadra-Arjun in time lag disrupted to Bhadrajun.It is said that where on the permission of Lord Shri Krishna Arjun lifted Subhadra from Dwarika stayed here on the way.There marriage had also taken place here only.One Brahmin of nearby village conducted their marriage.Arjun gave his conch shell(Shankh) and Subhadra gave her ear ring as gift to Brahmin.That’s why the name this village is sankhvali Near Bhadrajun a small temple of Devi Subhadra is situated known by the name ‘Dhumda Mata’.

 

Bhadrajun is 93 Km . away from Jodhpur and during Riyasat time it’s landlord was one among first class 10 landlords of Jodhpur state.These 10 landlord were high in rank, position and respect from all other landlords.There were total 1891 landlords in Jodhpur 290 were called Tajimi landlords.Out of these 290 first 10 were known as ‘Riyasat’ and they were of Rathore Dan.The people of their place called them ‘Raja’ That’s why Bhadrajun’s landlord was also called ‘Raja’.The Jagir of Bhadrajun was given by Jodhpur ’s king Sur Sing to Mukund das Rathore in 1652 Vikram Samvat (1596 A.D.).

These people are Jodha Rathores descendants of Rao Maldev IInd son Ratan Ji.This Ratan Ji’s stone inscription could be seen today also near Neelkanth village’s famous temple of lord Shiva.27 villages were under this jagir with an annual income of 31,850 Rs. In whole of marwar leaving royal family wives only 290 Tajimi landlord’s wives were allowed to ear gold bracket on legs.

In the court of Maharaja of Jodhpur right side was occupied by champawat & Kupawat Rajputs and Jodha,Motiya and Udawat sat on the left side of Maharaja. Landlords of Pokhram, Auhua and Aasop sat on the right side of Maharaja.Who so ever came first took the highest seat early comes amount Reiya’s,Raipur’s,Roa’s, Neemraj’s and Khervaj landlords took seat on the left side. Whenever the above mentioned landlords were absent Thakur of Alliniyavas and took seat first on the left & then right side as necessary.

Rao Jodha started the tradition of sitting right or left in his court.On his right side he gave place to his brothers and to sons on the left.For this reason landlords who were descendants of brothers of Rao Jodha were seated right and landlords of Jodha’s sons descendants to the left.That’s why ‘Raja’ of Bhadrajun sat on right side of Maharaja.Afterwards Raja Suraj Singh changed ranks according to Mughal rulers and introduced Tajim system for landlords.Pokhran had 100 villages and Raipur 37 villages only these two had more villages than Bhadrajun.But though having less villages than Bhadrajun Jagirs of Aadop,Reiya,Neemraj and Raos had more annual income.

The fort of Bhadrajun was under its landlord which was built on mountain top.It is small but strong mountain fort.Present descendants of Bhadrajaun’s Landlord Raja Gopal Singh also remained speaker of Rajasthan Assembly in 1977.Still whenever former Raja Gopal Singh enters fort drumbed are propelled giving his information of coming.This palace could still be visited and watch its Riyasat times prosperily.Some foreigners visits this fort and becomes guest of Raja Gopal Singh Ji.

Thirteenth Century inscription is still present in the temple premise mentioning repair of temple.The roof top is absent now and the whole temple seems destroyed from above.It seems that the green trees of religion, faith & culture had been cut into pieces.

Jagnath Mahadev is one of the two temples built by Rudal Devi, situated 20 Km away by road and 35 Km . by newly built paver road from Jalore.It was found underneath a mound some years before when one new temple was already built some distance away. This temple is called Juna Mandir(Old Temple).The ancient temple is the one possibly constructed by Rudal Devi. During Khilji’s & Pathan’s rulers this temple probably went uncared about and got buried under sand.

New Shiva temple was established nearby.>It is also possible that this temple was destroyed by attackers.Whatever might be the reason broken stone inscription in temple complex testifies to the fact that it was built here by Rudal Devi.
