Dholpur Tourism - A Golden Bridge Between Mughal And Deccan

Travel to Dholapur situated almost midway between Agra and Gwalior, Dholpur is an easy destination for a single day freak out amidst the rustic greens of Rajasthan. The old historic pad of Dholpur, was originally named as Dhawalpuri, after Dhawal Deo, a Tomara Rajput chieftain, who established the city in the 11th century. This trivial town was, ironically, a witness to a very turbulent history. Its strategic location on the main route linking Kabul and Delhi to Deccan, and its close proximity to major capitals like Gwalior and Agra, attracted attention of many rulers, in and around the state. It was near here that Dara Shikoh, eldest and most beloved son of Mughal Emperor Shahjahan, was defeated by his younger brother, Aurangzeb. After around 50 years, history repeated itself when Aurangazeb's sons fought a pitched battle for royal succession.

Not far from Van Vihar is the Ram Sagar wildlife sanctuary (8 km), so named because of the picturesque lake which is said to be inhabited by crocodiles and a variety of species of fishes and vicious snakes. Next on your itinerary should be the Talab Shahi (40 km) as the road from the Van Vihar Sanctuary leads straight to this place.
