One of the most ancient Rajasthani kingdoms, Alwar is a refreshing little town as compared to its more crowded and popular counterparts like Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur. In earlier times, Alwar was spelled Ulwar, which placed it last in alphabetically ordered lists in British India. One of the kings of Alwar then decided to change the spelling to Alwar, which then placed it on the top of the list. If you want to explore the rich culture of Rajasthan, then you will be delighted to find that Alwar has soaked up a lot of the culture and heritage of the state and has a lot to offer where authenticity is concerned.
