Balachaur is the Birth place of Choudhary Rahmat Ali (founder of word Pakistan) and was barrister at law in England.
In 16th century a Kachwaha Rajput named Raj Dev along with his family came here. He was related with the family of the King of Jaipur. He started meditating here and named this place after the name of his son Balraj as Balachaur. Raj dev died in 1596. People made his tomb here and worshiped him as Baba Balraj. A committee named as "Balraj Mandir Committee" was created in 1949 and its President was Zaildar Balwant Singh. Present President is Rana Purshotam Singh.
In 1539 Sher-Shah-Suri before attacking Himayun took the blessing of Raj Dev.
