Princely History

Kishangarh State was founded by the Jodhpur prince Kishan Singh in 1609.Kishangarh was the capital of the eponymous princely state during the British Raj, which was located in the Rajputana Agency. It had an area of 2210 km˛. In 1840, Prithvi Singh, became the 15th Maharaja of Kishangarh, and reigned till his death in 1879, after which he was succeeded by his son, Sardul Singh.

Maharaja Madan Singh ascended the throne in 1900 at the age of sixteen, at the time when the state was reeling from the impact of a overwhelming drought. The administration under him and his diwan was widely deemed worthy of approval; irrigation from tanks and wells was expanded and factories for ginning and pressing cotton were started. A social reform movement for discouraging excessive expenditure on marriages made remarkable impact during his reign.

The present maharaja is Brijraj Singhji. The town of Kishangarh has a beautiful palace-hotel known as Phool Mahal and a massive Fort. The city also has a large lake known as the Gond Talav.
