The Famous History of Neemrana


The industrial town of Neemrana is an ancient town, situated on the Delhi-Jaipur Highway, between Behror and Shahajahanpur. This area is also known as Ahirwal region and is the site of a 16th-century hill-fort occupied by Chauhans till 1947. The erstwhile ruling Chauhan family is considered to be of the direct lineage of Prithviraj Chauhan.

Apart from this fort, there is also another fort, Kesroli in Alwar district, that is one of the oldest heritage sites. In Kesroli, you can witness the oldest remains of Buddhist Vihara at Viratnagar where the Pandavas spent the last year of their exile incognito. Known as Pandupole, this place has a reclining statue of Hanuman and the samadhi of the ruler saint Bhartrihari.

What is more famous in Neemrana nowadays is the large industrial belt that has sprung across the town with many multinational companies having set up base here. An excellent destination for a quick weekend getaway, only a drive from the National Capital, Neemrana offers great facilities. Days Hotel at Neemrana offers great stay for those travelling to this town, whether it be for business or pleasure.
