Dausa - A Tranquil Sojourn To Ancient Town

Your Dausa travel will begin from NH 11. Dausa, a rural city is a cool place to hang around for a day while staying at Jaipur. Just at 54 km east of the Pink City, Dausa is an ancient town of archeological significance. It once had the pleasure of being the first capital of the quomdam Kacchawaha clan of Dhundhar. This happened in 1037 AD, when Rajput king, Duleh Rai, annexed the land from the tribe of Susawat Minas and made Dausa his capital city. Now it is a silent spectator of the bygone glory with an old fort in one side and small havelis dotted all over the terrain. Recently archaeologists visited Dausa and discovered some interesting antiquities, which are believed to belong to the late medieval period. You too should pay a vist to the famous rural destination of Dausa that has historical attractions.

Where The History Speaks For Itself

Being a site of substantial archeological importance, it is not bizarre to find many archaic temples dotting the green terrains of Dausa. Enjoy a holiday in Dausa wherein tourists can drive upto the Nilkanth Mahadev Temple, sitted on the summit of a squat hill and trimmed with picturesque surroundings. This temple is the major attraction of Dausa. An interesting thing about the shrine is that only the top of the Shiv Lingam is visible above the ground, and it is believed that the endless part has gone down to the underworld. One can also visit Mataji ka Mandir, housing some fine examples of stone sculpture, dating back to12th century AD. It is one of those holy sites where spirituality augments with the serene ambiance, pulsating with the euphony of bells that can be heard from quite a miles away. If on a holiday trip to Dausa, don't forget to visit the Dargah of Hazrat Khwaja Jamaluddin Shah Baba, in particular if you want a few miracles in your life. Wait for Mondays when the lethargic famous village city of Dausa springs up to life because of a special market, set up nearby. Leather merchants from nearby districts cluster here to sell some exquisite articles made of camel leather.

The Rural Dogma of Dausa

Drive a few kilometers to reach the historical Pratap Vatika in Vair. The erstwhile example of Rajput dominance is now completely in ruins, but still it is a place of fun if you are with someone special. Wander inside the Pratap Mahal, a magnificent mansion with arched roofs and carved pillars, synchronised with appreciating Rajput architecture. Within the complex is a small temple - Mohanji ka Mandir - made of red sandstone, with Mohan (Krishna) as the presiding deity. The beautifully painted arches and shadowed pillars of the temple, though damaged, add to the romantic ambiance greatly. One can spend the holiday evenings exploring the corners of this small town. Visit the countryside and see the circular hamlets, walls of which are covered with plaster of clay, cowdung and hay, and floors are a experiment of pounded lime, limestone pebbles and water. Listen to the folk women of these virgin corners, for whom Dausa is the only cosmos, they know. Jewels glinting on their foreheads, trims of gold ribbon only adding to the decor, and colorful glass bangles jangle not just on wrists, but all the way upto the arms above the elbow.
