A Trip to Dausa

I had been to Dausa by road in the month of November 2016. Dausa is a must-visit attraction in the tourism circuit of Rajasthan. The must-visit attractions around Dausa include the Mehandipur Balaji Temple, Bhangarh and Abhaneri Stepwells. The Mehandipur Balaji Temple is located at a distance of 60 kilometers from Jaipor off the Agra Road and is a temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman. Bhangarh is also referred to as a 'ghost city'. It is spread over a total area measuring 7 square kilometers. This great city was destroyed as early as in the 15th century and is now more known unfortunately as a deserted town. Now, the ruins of thjis great city is limited to broken homes and havelis and temples. The better part of this great city is that the ASI is looking after the remains of this once-upon-a-time great city. The Abhaneri stepwells is located at a distance of 95 kilometers from Jaipur on the Jaipur-Agra highway. This historical wonder is home to the Chand Baori Stepwell and the iconic Harshat Mata Temple.

Nothing special as a landscape

Only reason to stay here is that it is nearest to railway station and Mehandipur Balaji shrine. Nothing to enjoy or have fun. Moreover number of hotels to stay if train is late or are less and that too are in pathetic condition. One can only manage a night... Not a tourist attraction.

Dausa Overview

Dausa, which is also known as Dev Nagari, is a town located in the state of Rajasthan, in west India. The region where this town is located is popularly known as Dhundhar. It has an average altitude of about 333 metres. It is at a distance of about 55 km from Jaipur, the state capital, and is close to National Highway 11.

Dausa is spread over a total area of about 3404.78 square km. It is surrounded by Jaipur, Sawai Madhopur, Alwar, Karauli, Tonk and Bharatpur. A part of the North Aravalli Range falls in Dausa. The major rivers flowing in this area include the Banganga and Morel rivers. These rivers have dried out now and 36 dams have been built. The administrative headquarters of the Dausa District is also located at this place.

This region was under the control of the Chauhans during the 10th century. It was a crucial political centre in the Dhundhar region. From 996 to 1006 AD this region was under the control of Raja Sodh Dev, a Kachwaha ruler who came from Gwalior. Dulha Rao, who was his son, also governed the region for about 30 years. The capital of the Kachwahas' was moved to Amber later on.

Dausa is popular for its rich culture and traditions. The unique local flavour of the region is very well preserved even today. Hela-Khayal, which is a form of folk art, is a unique style of singing prevalent in this region. Hela singers through their songs demonstrate the enduring spirit and enthusiasm of people living in this region.

There are numerous places of tourist interest in the town of Dausa such as Khawaraoji, Chand Baori and Bhadravati Palace. There are several popular temples in the place as well including Panch Mahadev, Neelkanth and the Harshad Mata Temple. Gatolav is another place popular among tourists visiting Dausa.

In ancient times, Khawaraoji was the residence of the Bargujar Rulers and at present is transformed into a heritage hotel. Panch Mahadev Temple and the Neelkanth Temple on the other hand are two of the most famous temples in the region which are dedicated to Lord Shiva.

There is so much to see in Dausa.
