¤ The Fort Attraction

In Madhogarh-Tunga, you have nothing except a fort for sightseeing. But it’s a nice place to stay anyway, because it's quiet and pleasant in here. Built by the Kachhawaha Rajputs (of Amber-Jaipur), the fort is an imposing monument nestling amidst mango orchards. It’s still in great shape, rising from the earth like a solid chunk of strength. The fort has now been converted into a heritage hotel.


¤ A Battle Site

` Madhogarh-Tunga was also the site of a battle between the Kachhawaha Rajputs and the Marathas, both parties being famed for their fighting prowess. Things got really bad during Sawai Prithvi Singh's time (ruled 1778-1803), because he and the Maratha General Mahadji Scindia were always at each other's throats. Once the latter advanced upto Dausa, which was alarmingly close to Jaipur. War was thus inevitable. The Maratha and Jaipur forces met at Tunga where a fierce battle was fought for three days in May 1787. But the Marathas, who were supposedly trained by a French, were no match for the Rajputs and were defeated.
