Jhalarapatan, 7km from Jhalawar, is aptly known as 'city of temple bells'. An ancient village built in 1792 by Jhalawar’s founder, Jhala Zalim Singh, the town then was an important trade stop and, therefore, protected by walls. Today it is the city of bells as the evening air reverberates with the peal of bells from scores of temples. Every corner has a shrine, some big, some small and some nondescript, as an idol under a tree. But every shrine is attended to and one must take care in visiting every corner of the city. Jhalarapatan contributes majorly to Jhalawar's alternative name, 'city of temples'.Timings: Sunrise to sunsetEntrance fees: Free
