Thakur Jalim Singhji of Kuchaman had given Jagir of Jasuri viallage to Jagaramji, the poet born there only. Then Rao Raja Laxman Singh Ji of Sikar had given Jagirs of Maharajpur and Laxmnapura in 1847 and 1858 to the poet after impressing by his great poetry and knowledge of Sanskrit.

Udaipur - City Of Lakes

Udaipur also known as the City of Lakes, is a city, a Municipal Council and the administrative headquarters of the Udaipur district in the state ofRajasthan in western India. It is located 403 kilometres (250 mi) southwest of the state capital, Jaipur. Udaipur was the historic capital of the former kingdom of Mewar in Rajputana Agency. Lake Pichola, Fateh Sagar Lake, Udai Sagar and Swaroop Sagar in this city are considered some of the most beautiful lakes in the state.

Udaipur was founded in 1559 by Maharana Udai Singh II ,the final capital of the erstwhileMewar kingdom.The first capital of Mewar kingdom was Nagda, located on the Banas Rivernortheast of Udaipur. Legend has it that Maharana Udai Singh II came upon a hermit while hunting in the foothills of the Aravalli Range. The hermit blessed the king and asked him to build a palace on the spot and it would be well protected. Udai Singh II established a residence there. In 1568 theMughal emperor Akbar captured Chittor, and Udai Singh moved the capital to the site of his residence, which became the city of Udaipur.[4] As the Mughal empire weakened, the Sisodia ranas, and later maharanas, reasserted their independence and recaptured most of Mewar except the fort of Chittor. Udaipur remained the capital of the state, which became a princely state ofBritish India in 1818. After India's Independence in 1947,king of Udaipur Maharana Bhupal Singh acceded to the Government of India, and Mewar was integrated into India's Rajasthan state.

Sisodias, or the Guhilots (Suryavansh),[clarification needed] have ruled the Mewar region since V.S 191,[clarification needed] were against Mughal dominion, and tried to distance themselves from them.[citation needed] Being a mountainous region and unsuitable for heavily armoured Mughal horses, Udaipur remained unmolested from Mughal influence in spite of much pressure. Maharana Fateh Singh of Udaipur was the only royalty who did not attend the Delhi Durbar for King George V in 1911. This fierce sense of independence earned them the highest gun salute in Rajasthan, 19 against the 17 each of Jaipur, Jodhpur, Bundi, Bikaner, Kota and Karauli. Rosita Forbes, who passed this land during the decline of the British Raj, described it as "like no other place on earth".[citation needed]
