History

Earlier, Karauli, along with Alwar, was part of the Matsya kingdom, according to the legend of Mahabharata. The modern princely state Karauli was founded in about 995 by Raja Bijai Pal, who was a Jadon Rajput ruler, who is claimed to be 88th in descent from the Hindu god Krishna.[2] The Jadu Rajputs are descendants of Lord Krishna, founded in 900 CE by Raja Brahm Pal. The town itself dates from 1348, and is located in a geographical setting naturally defended by ravines on the north and east, and is further protected by a great wall.[3] His Highness the Maharaja maintains a military force of 281 cavalry, 1640 infantry, and 56 guns, and is entitled to a salute of 17 guns (as of 1892). The Britishers later occupied it, and they ruled up to 1947. The Maharaja's palace is a handsome block of buildings, some of them dating to the mid-18th century.[3] Karauli State was founded by Maharaja Arjun Dev Pal in 1346 CE.
