Bhandarej
About Bhandarej

Bhandarej is a pretty village, which is located about 62 km from Jaipur in the Dausa district of Rajasthan. Within Bhandarej, there are several ancient monuments and temples from the pre-medieval period, which shows that the history of this village traces back to the 11th century. Previously ruled by Badgujjars, Dausa and Bhandarej were taken over by the Kachhawaha princes, under the control of Dula Rai. The kingdom of Dhundar was thus established, and the Bhandarej Fort was founded around it. Other Bhandarej chieftains like Rao Dalel Singh, his son Kunwar Laxman Singh and grandson Bhanwar Raj Singh lost their lives in a battle, and are remembered since then for their bravery. By the medieval period, Bhandarej was known countrywide for its unique sculptures, lattice work, and terracotta vessels.

The village is also a haven for adventure seekers with activities like camel rides, horse rides and jeep safaris. Bhandarej is also famous as an excellent gateway to wildlife sanctuaries of Bharatpur, Sariska and Ranthambore National Park.The best time to visit Bhandarej is from October through March.

The population of Bhandarej is 43120, a vast majority of which converse in Rajasthani, Hindi or English. The village has gained popularity in the country for the five-storey step well, Bara Baoli, which was built by the Kumbhani Rajputs in 1732 AD.

By the medieval period, Bhandarej was known countrywide for its unique sculptures, lattice work, and terracotta vessels. In the present time, tourists visiting the village can explore only the remnants of the ancient structures that have been excavated by the archaeologists. Characteristic of a rich tribal heritage, this village is often explored by tourists for the fine carpets and pottery that are made here.
