Bharatpur - The Eastern Gateway to Rajasthan. Bharatpur is an important city located in the Indian state of Rajasthan. The city was founded by Maharaja Suraj Mal in the year of 1733. It was once an impregnable well fortified city, carved out of the region formerly known as Mewar. The trio of Bharatpur, Deeg and Dholpur has played an important part in the history of Rajasthan. It is situated at the distance of just 50 km from Agra (the City of Taj Mahal), Uttar Pradesh. And 175 kms from Jaipur, Rajasthan.

They maintained considerable autonomy though they were allied to the Mughals; this was largely due to their prowess in the battle and their marriage alliances with the Rajputs. Their fort in Bharatpur even withstood attacks from the British in 1805 and 1825 but later they signed a treaty of friendship with the East India Company. It merged with the union of India at independence. The interesting aspect of the Bharatpur history is the domination of Jats in the region since 17th century, leader like Churaman and Badan Singh brought the Jats together to mould them into a force to reckon with. Suraj Mal has been the greatest ruler who made them a formidable force and played a very important role in the Indian history during 19th century.
