Hanumangarh



Hanumangarh, also called Sadulgarh, is an ancient town situated on the right bank of the Ghaggar River in Rajasthan. It is the administrative headquarters of Hanumangarh District. Hanumangarh is 447 km north-west of Jaipur.

Hanumangarh's old name was ‘Bhatner’, when the town was a stronghold of the Bhati Rajputs. The town was christened ‘Hanumangarh’ after its annexation with the princely state of Bikaner.

Places of tourist interest include Bhatner Durg, Kalibanga and Sangaria. The Gogaji fair and Goga Medi are two major events that draw a large number of people from far and near.

Nearest airports are at Chandigarh and Delhi. Hanumangarh Junction Railway Station is on the Suratgarh-Bhatinda line.
