Short History

The Rajas of Nimrana belong to the Sankat sub-clan and Kharak family of the Chauhan clan. The estate was formerly independent, but in 1803, it, along with the Kishengarh pargana, was given to the Raja of Alwar. In 1861, the then Raja rebelled against Alwar but was immediately subdued. The matter was resolved in 1868, with the Raja exercising Civil and Criminal jurisdiction within his estate, subject to any conditions that the British Government might lay down. The Raja was also required to pay an annual tribute to Alwar of 12.5% of the total land revenue of the entire estate. The estate is located in the northwest of Alwar.
