Sikar is a city located midway between Agra and Bikaner in the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan state in India. It is the administrative headquarters of Sikar District. Sikar is a historical city and contains many old Havelis which are a huge tourist attraction. It is 114 km away from Jaipur, 320 km from Jodhpur 215 km from Bikaner and 280 km from Delhi.sikar is known as SIKAR Education HubHistorySikar is as much part of Shekhawati as Jhunjhunu. It was the largest Thikana (Estate) of the Jaipur State, earlier known as Nehrawati. Sikar was the capital town of the Thikana Sikar. It is surrounded by high walls with seven gates ("Pols"). These are Bawari Gate, Fatehpuri Gate, Nani Gate, Surajpole Gate, Dujod Gate Old, Dujod Gate New and Chandpole Gate. Sikar was once known as ‘Beer Bhan Ka ’.Rao Raja Ram Pratap Singh ascended the throne after Laxman Singh built the marble palace. The golden painting on its walls is very attractive. The successive rulers of Sikar have been Rao Raja Bhairon Singh, Rao Raja Sir Madhav Singh Bahadur (1866/1922), who was granted the title of Bahadur in 1886, and Madhav Singh, who enjoys the credit of making the huge Victoria Diamond Jubilee Hall & Madhav Niwas Kothi, excellent examples of his love for architecture and paintings. He was always anxious for the welfare of the public. During the terrible famine in 1899 (Samvat 1956), he started many famine relief works for the poor and hungry people. This is evident from ‘Madhav Sagar Pond’, built in 1899, at a cost of Rs.56000: it clearly speaks the fame of his ruler. It was in the times of Madhav Singh that Sikar saw the first light of electricity. The roads were also constructed in his time. The old monuments, forts, palaces, boundary walls and temples were repaired in his time. He was very strong and courageous. He had very cordial relations with the British Government. The survey of Railway from Jaipur to Sikar was accomplished in this period. After Madhav Singh the throne of Sikar was ascended by Kalyan Singh.
