When was Nawalgarh establishedNawalgarh was founded by Thakur Nawal Singh Ji Bahadur (Shekhawat) in 1737 AD. According to the experts of Shekhawati's written unwritten history, Shekhawati Rajputs dominated the Shekhawati region from the fifteenth century (1443) to the middle of the eighteenth century i.e. 1750. Then their empire was as far as Sikarwati and Jhunjhunwati. The area dominated by the Shekhawat Rajputs is called Shekhawati, but due to the uniformity in language, dialect, living, food, dress language and sociocultural methods, Churu district also came to be considered a part of Shekhawati.
History of Nawalgarh in EnglishIn the role of historian Surjan Singh Shekhawat's book 'Brief History of Nawalgarh', it is written that Rajput Rao Shekha ruled here from 1433 to 1488. In the same book, it is written that Thakur Todarmal, the king of Udaipurwati (Shekhawati), instead of appointing one of his sons as his successor, implemented Bhai Bunt. As a result, the partition was so rapid that even a village was divided into four to five shekhawats. The same mistake was repeated in Jhunjhunu State. This practice made the Shekhawats from the king to Bhaumiya (owner of a land).
The then king of Jhunjhunu was Shardul Singh, divided into the lands of five sons - Zorawar Singh, Kishan Singh, Akha Singh, Naval Singh and Keshar Singh. Nawalgarh of Nawal Singh is a model of the same Bhai Bunt system. Nawal Singh was the king of Nawalgarh and Mandawa provinces.
