Alwar is a quaint town with a population of just over 200,000. Located 145 km from Jaipur and 170 km from Delhi, it lies in the hills of the Aravalli range and is surrounded by lakes, forests and palaces. An important Rajput state, Alwar played a vital part in the history of Rajasthan. It came under Muslim rule in the 13th century and in the 18th Century, the Rajput ruler, Maharaja Pratap Singh, wrested it back from the invaders and founded the then state of Alwar.
Vinay Vilas Mahal
History

The city of Alwar forms an ancient Rajput state. It was formerly known as Mewat. It was closest to imperial Delhi. In the 12th and 13 th centuries the inhabitants of Alwar formed a group and raded Delhi. It was ultimately Sultan Bulban who suppressed them, bringing the area under the Muslims rule. Between 1775 and 1782 under the leadership of the Naruka thakur (noble) Pratap Singh. His descendants were great patrons of the arts , commissioning the transcription of numerous sacred and scholarly texts and encouraging painters and artisans to visit the Alwar court. In 1803, the British awarded the Alwar thakur with the title of maharaja as thanks for their support in a battle against the Marathas. This friendly alliance was short-lived, however, with the maharaja of Alwar strongly resenting British interference in governance when a British Resident was installed in the city. Following Independence, Alwar was merged with the other princely states of Bharatpur, Karauli and Dholpur, forming the United State of Matsya, a name which reflected the fact that those states all comprised the ancient Matsya kingdom. In 1949, Matsya was merged with the state of Rajasthan.

Climate
