In the historical period, Jhujunnu was an ancient city, but later it developed an area around the kingdom. It is one of the largest regions in Rajasthan. The history of Jhunjhunu is full of stories about the bravery and sacrifice of Rajputs. The defensive wars in the area continued in Jhunjhunu: part of the Shekhawati region. Siddharth of the Johan dynasty is believed to have ruled Jhujhunu in 1045 and was a famous local king.  Muhammad Khan and his son Samat Khan defeated Qiao Khan and captured Jhunjhunu.

Facts & Culture

It is one of the most prosperous regions in Rajasthan with most of the area semi-desert. The Aravali Mountains surround the southeastern part of the region. On the outskirts of Singhana and Khetri, there are huge and generous copper mines. The lush green valleys and beautiful natural landscape attract tourists. Lohargal is a sacred place of pilgrimage, nestled in the embrace of these mountains. There is an anecdote that Pandwas, the hero of Mahabharata, saved themselves by bathing in Surya Kund along with their weapons. Every year, a large number of people come here for a holy bath on the occasion of Bhadrapad Amavasya. The area is located in the heart of the famous Shekawati province. Teej, gangaur, dusserah, diwali and Holy are Pan Rajasthan festivals celebrated by Jhunjhunu. Two unique festivals in Jhunjhunu include the Rani Sati Fair and the Sekhawati Festival. The first is a religious festival and the second is a secular festival organized by the state government. 

Rani Sati Expo is held twice a year, once at Magh Krishna Navami and then at Bhado Amabashya. On the other hand, the Shekhawati Festival usually takes place on February 10 and 11. This festival allows visitors to get a glimpse of rural life in Rajasthan. Camel and jeep rides, farm visits, cultural programs, fireworks, etc. are the symbols of this festival. However, in order to learn more about the Sekhawati heritage, these festivals are also held in Nawalgarh, Sikar and Churu.
