Sikar Overview

Sprawling over an area of 7742.44 sq km, Sikar is a district in the state of Rajasthan. Located in the north-eastern part of the state, it is bounded by Jhunjhunu District in the north, in the north-west by Churu District and on the south-west by Nagaur District. On the south-east, the destination is surrounded by Jaipur District, while on the north-east corner lies Mahendragarh District of Haryana.

The administrative headquarters of the region is Sikar city, which is the second most developed city in the state after Jaipur. Historical evidences point to the fact that Sikar was the biggest Thikana of the state of Jaipur and was under the reign of the Shekhawats. Formerly known as Beer Bhan Ka Bass, Sikar served as the capital town of the Thikana Sikar.

Following the murder of Rao Jaswant Singh, father of Rao Daulat Singh of Kasli Thikana, enmity arose between Rao Daulat Singh and Raja Bahadur Singh Shekhawat, who was the Raja of Khandela. In order to end this enmity, Raja Bahadur Singh Shekhawat gifted this village to Rao Daulat Singh.

Later, in 1687, Rao Daulat Singh laid the foundation of new Thikana Sikar at this village. As time passed, the destination was ruled by the several Rao Rajas. From 1721 to 1748, Sikar was under the reign of Rao Shiv Singh, who was considered the most prominent Raja of the destination. Sikar, after Shiv Singh was ruled by his successors namely, Rao Samrath Singh, Rao Nahar Singh, Rao Chand Singh and Rao Devi Singh.

During their rule, several forts were constructed that still stand erect and are known for their beautiful architecture, among which, Laxmangarh Fort is the most prominent. Apart from this, there are several other places of attraction such as Madho Niwas Kothi, Rani Mahal, Nehru Park and Maroo Park.

In addition, the destination is also famous as the pilgrimage centre of Lord Shri Khatu Shyamji. He is believed to be an avatar of Lord Shri Krishna. According to the Hindu calendar, in the month of Phagun, which generally falls between February and March, a big festival called Khatu Shyamji is organised in the destination.

Khatu Shyamji fair is held between 3rd and 5thMarch, 2012.

Owing to religious importance of this destination, there are many temples in Sikar. Some of the most popular temples of the region include Ganeshwar, Harshnath Temple and Shyamji Temple.

Accessibility to this destination is easy owing to the presence of flights, buses and trains. Tourists travelling by air can board flights to Jaipur International Airport, which is located at a distance of 132 km from Sikar.
