And one such hidden gem, covered under a blanket of dust, is Jhalawar, or the city of temples! Once known as Brijnagar, Jhalawar today is a place laden with historic forts, beautiful palaces, Hindu and Jain temples and Buddhist rock-cut caves. It has a rocky, water-laden landscape, that makes it a greener city, in comparison to the numerous other cities of the state. And with the onset of winters, the entire area is bathed in shades of gold and orange, with numerous orange orchards blooming. And contrasting the orange tinges are bright pinks and whites of the opium that is still harvested in many field of Jhalawar.
