Best Time to Visit Alwar

Alwar, nestled in Aravalli ranges, is a tourist destination in Rajasthan and a large number of visitors reach here. As is usual in Rajasthan, Alwar is dominated by its medieval fort that crowns imposingly a sharp, conical rock. Once the capital of the princely State of the same name, Alwar contains a palace separated from the hill by the Sagar tank. A portion of the building has been turned into a museum devoted mainly to manuscripts and paintings. Of the former there are over 7,000, the most notable being an illuminated copy of the Koran in Arabic with Persian translation in red lettering. The picture gallery contains a rare collection of Mughal and Rajasthani paintings. There is also an armory containing the personal weapons of Akbar, Jahangir, Shahjahan and Aurangzeb, with hilts of gold studded with jewels.

Examples of the Alwar School of painting can be seen at the Gunijankhana, the feudal academy of arts. Unlike in the more conventional Rajput paintings, here the pictures of dancing girls do not veil the beauty of limbs and the sensuousness of Rajput women. The marble mausoleum of Bakhtawar Singh, south of the Sagar (a picturesque water tank), is one of the finest examples of Indo-Islamic architecture. Another spot to visit is the Purjan Vihar, a public park on the outskirts of town and its renowned Summer House. At a few minutes’ run lies Siliserh, a lake covering four square miles, adorned with chhatris (domed cenotaphs) and fringed by a dense forest. There is also a dream palace at the water-edge, which has been thrown open to visitors.
