Sawai Madhopur is the gateway to the world renowned Ranthambore National Park - the famous Tiger Reserve. Ranthambore has been a witness to the rise and fall of many rulers and a series of battle scenes. Sawai Madhopur was founded by Madho Singh II and was known as Madhopur till the time Mughal Emperor, Aurangzeb, impressed by Jai Singh's wit, bestowed him with a surname of Sawai. From then onwards, Madhopur became Sawai Madhopur. The village of Sawai Madhopur with the rolling hills of Aravalis and Vindhayas surrounding it is quite attractive with a pleasant atmosphere. Also, Sawai Madhopur, along with other nearby villages is quiet well known for its Bandhani and lahariya, block printed textiles, silver jewellery, antique furniture, wood, metal handicrafts, carpets as well as its exclusive toys, ethnic ornaments and costumes. Shopping for these items therefore means shopping for a lifelong memory of your visit to Sawai Madhopur.
