         Kalibanga (Hadappa culture)

   Long before recorded history, many thousands of years ago, there was a city on the banks of a river called Saraswati. Agriculture flourished here, as did commerce and the industries of pottery, iron and beads. And then, the mighty river changed its course and finally dried up due to the immensity of the encroaching desert. The winds of change buried the city under the sands of time and for the next four thousand years or more, it lay entombed below the dunes as millenniums slipped silently by on the hot desert surface. And the ancient city was forever lost to memory.

And then one day in 1962 it was rediscovered as much by accident as by design. After nearly 5000 years it was dug out from the womb of the earth near sand bound village in north Rajasthan called Kalibanga.

HISTORY

The name Kalibanga itself does not say much but to a student of history it is immediately recognized as one of the important sites of the Indus Valley Civilization that flourished around 3000 to 5000 years BC.

Today, we can say that this civilization ranged between Baluchistan in the west to Meerut in the east; from Punjab in the north to the warm seaports of Gujarat in the south. In this vast region of northwest India, there were two principle sites of Harappa and Mohanjodaro that were first excavated in the 1930s by Sir Mortimer Wheeler. Later, other IVC (Indus Valley Civilization) sites came to light as well but nothing could match the sheer size and scope of the evidence unearthed at Harappa and Mohanjodaro. After India gained independence in 1947, these two world famous sites were now across the border in new Pakistan. Indians justifiably felt deprived of their ancient cultural heritage. A renewed effort at locating IVC sites within Indian boundaries was made since the nascent nation was eager to regain some of the lost evidence that proved India to be such an ancient civilization…

Bhatner Fort(Hanumangarh)

     It was ruled by Bhatti Rajputs for a long period and for a short spell was under the Turk Timur the Lame, who wrote in his autobiography Tuzuk-i-Timuri, that he had not seen a stronger and more fortified citadel in the whole of India.

It was in 1527- the fourth ruler of Bikaner Maharaj Jait Singh annexed the fort & it became part of the Bikaner empire.
After passing hands many times between Mughals & kingdom of Bikaner, it was captured in 1805 finally.
