India | Rajasthan | Jhalawar


Jhalrapatan, dubbed as the ‘City of bells', is a small town located 6 km from Jhalawar, Rajasthan. The entire township exists within a wall, built to safeguard the trade caravans as Patan was the junction of caravan routes. Situated on the banks of the holy river Chandrabhaga, the town was founded by Parmara Chandra Sen, grandson of Maharaja Vikramaditya.

Major attraction here is a magnificent 100 ft high Surya Temple (Padam Nath Temple), which dates back to the 10th century. The annual Chandrabhaga Fair, held here in the month of Kartika (October-November), is a major draw. Other points of attractions include the 11th century Shantinath Jain temple and Shri Dwarkadheesh temple (built by Jhala Zalim Singh) are among the other important temples of the city.
