History

V. S. Agrawala[1] writes that Ashtadhyayi of Panini mentions janapada Sālva (शाल्व) (IV.2.135). It was confined to limited geographical horizon in the central and north eastern Punjab. Shalva may coincide with the territory extending from Alwar to north Bikaner. Salvas were ancient people who migrated from west through Baluchistan and Sindh where they left traces in the form of Śālvakāgiri, the present Hala mountain, and then advancing towards north Sauvira and along the Saraswati and finally settled in north Rajasthan.


According to legend, the Pandavas took shelter in this region during the thirteenth year of their exile.

In the mediaeval period, Alwar was an important military post of the Mughal Empire. During this period Alwar was used as an important base to launch attacks on the fort of Ranthambore. It also served as an important halting station for the Mughal Emperors during their journeys between Agra and Ajmer. During the later Mughal period, it was annexed by Maharaja Suraj Mal, the Jat ruler of Bharatpur. A Kachhwaha Rajput, Pratap Singh of Machheri, captured it from the Jats in 1775 and laid the foundation of a separate state of Alwar.

Prithviraja III's kaka Kanhadadeva was a great warrior. He was known as Kaka Kanha and present Alwar district's northern part, Sambhal and Moradabad were in his Jagir. He constructed a Shiva tenmple at Saraneshwara. Kanha'd damad was killed in war with Kutubuddin and his daughter named Bela became a sati. There is a temple of Bela in Sambhal where a fair is organized every year.[2]
