Midway between Delhi and Jaipur lies Alwar, known for its palace, museum, historical remains and big and small game in the neighbouring forests. It is 161 km. (100 miles) by road and about the same distance by rail from Delhi.
Alwar was the capital of the former princely state of the same name founded in 1771 by Maharaja Pratap Singh of the Kachhawa clan of Rajputs.
The town is dominated by a fort situated on a big conical hill and is backed by a range of hills. A steep ascent leads to the fort behind which stands the chhatri of Maharaja Pratap Singh.
The City Palace, separated from the base of the hill by Sagar, a picturesque tank, consists of a group of building in different styles. The museum lodged in a portion of this palace has a collection of manuscripts and paintings. Of the 7,000 manuscripts in Hindi, Sanskrit  and Persian, the most outstanding are the 24 m. (80 feet) long illustrated scroll of the Bhagwat and an illuminated copy of the Quran in Arabic with Persian translation in red letters. There is also a matchless copy of Sheikh Sadiís Gulistan, decorated with miniature paintings, which cost about Rs. 1,25,000 and took fifteen years to execute. It was prepared in the time of Maharao Vinay Singh who built the Vinay Vilas Palace. The painting gallery
has a valuable collection of Mughul and Rajasthani paintings.

The Armoury has old swords, sabres, and other weapons. The swords of Akbar, Jahangir, Shah Jahan, Dara-Shikoh, Nadir Shah and Aurangzeb, in addition to those bearing the seals of Persian rulers, can be seen here. Some of these have hilts of gold studded with jewels.

The cenotaph of Maharao Bakhtawar Singh lies to the south of Sagar. Raised upon the centre of a platform, its plinth is of red sandstone while the cenotaph itself is of marble.

Thirteen kilometres (8 miles) south-west of the city is Siliserh, a splendid lake in picturesque surroundings. Adorned with chhatris and fringed by a dense forest, the lake covers an area of 10 sq. km. (4 sq. miles) and was formed by the construction of a masonry dam. The lovely palace on the lake has been thrown open to tourists and a quiet holiday can be spent here amidst sylvan surroundings.

Around Alwar, there are many places of historical interest. Some of these are pre-Mughul mosques and tombs at Rejara. Near the old palace at Siraska is a scenic spot named after Raja Bhartrihari, a celebrated Hindu king, who performed a severe penance there. Rajorgarh is a large fortified town covered with ruins of ancient structures. Of these, the tenth-century temple of Nilkantha Mahadeva is notable. Laswari, marks the battlefield where the forces of Daulat Rao Scindia were defeated by Lord Lake in 1803. Rajgarh. Talao, Dapkan and Bhangarh are some other sites of historical and archaeological interest.
