Rajasthan Foundation Day History

The existence of Rajasthan dates back to prehistoric times. From time to time, there has been the rule of Chauhan, Mewar, Gehlot dynasty. Mewar, Marwar, Jaipur, Bundi, Kota, Bharatpur and Alwar used to be major princely states. All these princely states accepted the subjugation of British rule. The kings obtained concessions for themselves but there was discontent among the people. After the revolt of 1857, people united under Mahatma Gandhi’s leadership and contributed to the freedom struggle. After Independence, when the princely states started to merge, then the greater princely states like Bikaner, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer combined to form Greater Rajasthan. The state of Rajasthan officially came into existence in 1958. At that time the princely states of Ajmer, Abu Road Taluka and Sunal Tappa also merged into Rajasthan.

Almost all major cities of Rajasthan are related to some specific colour like Pink of Jaipur, White of Udaipur, the Blue colour of Jodhpur and Purple colour of Jhalawar. Almost all the special monuments and places in these places have been painted with special colours. This is the reason why Jaipur is also called Pink City, Udaipur is White City. Another thing about Rajasthan is that it is believed that the Saraswati river was lost under the Thar Desert due to the Aravali mountain range being formed which is the oldest mountain range in India even older than the Himalayas.
