. It is around 55 km north of Bharatpur

Legend has it that Lord Krishna had spent his early life here and therefore it is considered sacred by Hindus. Kaman was formerly known as Brahampore, which was later changed by Kamsa, uncle of Krishna. Kaman is also considered to be the short-form of Kadambawana, since a large number of Kadhamba Trees are found here. Kaman also holds the remains of ancient temples and mosques.
