Karauli

Located about 160 km from Jaipur, the small city of Karauli is an exquisite home to well decorated havelis, peaceful shrines, picturesque views and imprinted chhatris that dot the entire city. This beautiful place in Rajasthan shares its borders with the heart of India, Madhya Pradesh and is surrounded by Dausa, Dholpur and Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan. This city resonates with Mughal architectural flamboyance and is quite famous for its pale red sandstone that surrounds the entire city with strong and sturdy wall. Apart from its royal history, Karauli offers its visitors a rural and tranquil ambience with warm and hospitable behaviour, echoing the true old Rajasthani culture

Built in 11th Century CE and situated on the outskirts of Karauli, at a distance of about 25 km from the city is the temple of Kaila Devi. This beautiful shrine is right on the banks of Kalisal River in the ranging hills of Trikut and is one of the attractions of Kaurali. Covered with rich and dense forests, the Kaila Devi Sanctuary begins right after the Kaila Devi Temple and extends on both the sides of the road to eventually join the Ranthambore National Park. This green reserve is home to some great wildlife species like the chinkaras, nilgai, jackals and leopards. 

Built in the nineteenth century, Shri Mahavir Ji Temple, as the name suggests is a spectacular architectural structure dedicated to the Jain Tirthankars. It is one of the frequently visited and famous pilgrimage destinations for the Jains. The sculpture, design and structure of this building is highly inspired by Jain art and architecture.
