History of Rajasthan

The Gurjars, Bishnois, Rajpurohit, Yadavs, Meenas, Bhils, Rajputs, Charans, Jats, and other tribes put their utmost effort in the foundation of the state of Rajasthan. All of them face many problems in protecting their customs and the land. Many of them lost their life in this. Presently Rajasthan comprises mostly Rajputana, which includes the former 19 princely states, the British area of Ajmer-Merwara and two chiefships. Some of the main Rajput states of Rajasthan are Alwar, Jaipur, Bikaner, Udaipur and Jodhpur.

Jat princely states were Dholpur and Bharatpur while Tonk was princely state under Muslim Rulers. Rajput clans came and held their control over different areas of Rajasthan in the 6th century CE. Rajputs flight and protect Rajasthan from the Islamic attacks for more than 500 years. Over the years, the Mughals began to have internal conflicts which largely distracted them at times. Mughal Empire decline in the 18th century, with their decline Rajputana came under lordship of the Marathas.

The Marathas, who were Hindus from the state of Maharashtra, ruled Rajputana in the 18th century. The Maratha Empire, which had replaced the Mughal Empire was replaced in the year 1818 by the British Empire. After their defeat, the Rajput clans finished treaties with the British in the beginning of the 19th century, accepting British control and lordship over their outside matters in return for internal sovereignty.

From the past time, Rajasthan is very rich in cultural heritage and has beautiful architectural wonders, which is clearly seen in various palaces and forts (Havelis and Mahals) which are decorated with Jain and Islamic architectural patterns. The development of the wall paintings in Rajasthan is connected with the history of the Marwaris who played an important part in the economic growth of the state. Many wealthy clans throughout Indian history have relations to Marwar. These include the famous Bajaj, Mittal and Birla families.
