Other user descriptions
The city of Alwar (in Rajasthani: अलवर), known for its idyllic scenery, is the administrative district of the same name, and was in the ancient capital of the princely state of Alwar or Ulwar during British India. The city lies about 160 kilometers south of New Delhi and about 150 kilometers north of the capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur. Alwar is situated at an altitude of about 271 meters and has a population of about 170,000. At first, when the city was formed, was known as Ulwar. But as this name placed in last position in alphabetically ordered lists, the king changed his name to Alwar to occupy the first place. The princely state of Alwar was founded by Pratap Singh, a Rajput lineage Kachwaha in the second half of the eighteenth century. His adopted son, Bakhtawar Singh, aided the British against the Marathas. After the battle of Laswari (1803), Alwar became the first state of Rajputana thus sealing the treaty "offensive and defensive alliance" with the East India Company. A few years later, Singh Baktawar dared to make an armed incursion into neighboring Jaipur, the former state of Kachwaha. Bakhtawar Singh was defeated. He was later banned any political relations with other states without British consent. During the Sepoy Mutiny in 1857, Raoraja Bane Singh sent a force consisting mainly of Muslims and Rajputs, to relieve the British garrison in Agra.
