Brief history of Sirohi
Sirohi State was a princely state in the Rajputana Agency in India with its capital at Sirohi. Sirohi state was merged with the Rajasthan State on 16 November 1949.
In 1405, Deora king Rao Sobhaji a descendant of the Nadole ruler Samantsi Songara of Chauhan clan founded the town of Shivpuri on the western slope of Siranwa Hill. Shivpuri today lies in ruins. In 1425, his son and successor, Sehastramal (or Sahastramal, Sehastramal), founded a fortress on the eastern slope of the same hill, which became his capital and grew into the present-day town of Sirohi. Ant it was “Aakha Teej” that day.
For valuable services rendered during the Revolt of 1957, Rao Keshri Singh (ruled 1875-1920) and his successors were granted the title Maharao (equivalent to Maharaja) in 1889.
