History

DANTAGRAM… Our Village!!!

Being at the merging line of Sikar and Nagore district, it has been famous for its architecture and beauty from the ancient times. The “tope” is the grand attraction for the visitors, which is placed between the two forts at the mountain. And, it has the same classiness and pride as the “Jaiwan” tope of Jaigarh at Jaipur. It was used to make the celebrations on any festival by the Royal Family.

About Danta Fort

The residence of the Royal Family-‘Danta Fort’, situated at the foothill of the big mountain, is a live example of the sculpture science. Its primary delight is the “Darbar Hall”. The “Mayurasan” of the King, decorated with beautiful gold and silver artistry, was the clone of the throne of King Vikramaditya. Moreover, the public had been granted the right justice by the King here. But, at present, this fort is transformed into a Heritage Hotel, named “The Quilla Danta”, a well-known charm for the tourists.
Many foreigners have come to visit this beautiful fort and the palace. The historical items are very unique and worthy to watch like the “Tope”, “Swords”, “Battle’s materials”, “Rani Mahal”, etc.
The justice was being granted by the proficient rulers of the Royal Family. There were more than 40 villages under ‘Danta’ estate and the public was happy in the estate ‘Danta’. The last ruler of the family was Shree Thakur Madan Singh Danta who had died recently in the year 2001. He had been the member of the legislative assembly three times.
Danta Gram History

Now…The Village

The rulers of that time-Prem Singh Ji, Ganga Singh Ji and Madan Singh Ji had established our village just like Jaipur.
The Rambagh along with the palaces, inside it, were lovely and constructed in the same style as The Ramnivas Bagh of Jaipur. The major road was 30-35 meters broad and each lane intersected each other at the different crossroads. The main roads were concreted in those days also. The beautiful “Dovecote” or “Kabootarkhana” was made for the pigeons, also made by the Royal Family. It was at the “Chaupar Bazaar” (at the mid) of the village. The bird lovers entertained themselves by watching the pigeons’ play.
Prior to one month of Holi, all the inhabitants were involved into practicing and performing the special dance- “The Gindar Dance”. The great Indian festival-Holi was celebrated in harmony by Hindu and Muslim, both communities with the grand support of The Royal Family. Plus, the Ramleela was arranged at the Ramleela Maidan (at present, Gandhi Chowk) at the Chaupar. The crowd at the footpath enjoyed the Ramleela.
The rulers of that time set up a good example of unity as the contributors in building up the Masjid. Various temples had being constructed by the Royal Family, among which the temple of Uday Gopal Ji and Baba Parmanand were the chief ones.
The Gajanand Dwar, famous as the leading gate of the Dantagram, had the unique and perfect significance of its own. The statue of Ganesh Ji was also decorated on the gate along with the “Rising Sun”, the emblem of the Royal Family. This grand gate was the real guard of our village. The pond in the southern direction of the village was spread in 8 Bigha and the best part was that it was also built by the Rulers of that time. And, the “Jal Mahal”, situated at the center of the pond, is in the crumbling situation at present.
The Teej fair is also organized and it has said that the Teej Sawari had come at the second position, after the Jaipur’s Teej Sawari. The Gangaur fair was organized at the Gangauri Field. Ishar and Gangaur of this place were made up of 8 metals which look alive. Camel race and horse race was being organized at this field. At present, there is a bus stand at the same place. The guest house of the royal family was situated near the field, at present there is a vast hardware market in the village.
There were 3-4 pretty gardens including Rambagh in the village among which Satyanarayan Temple Park and Gangasagar Park were famous. Temples were also used as rest houses. The huge hospices and rest rooms were also situated in the village. A huge number of grazing grounds were there. The elephants and horses were kept in the fort.
The above description is about the happy and peaceable village ‘Danta’ where people felt proud to be the inhabitant of that village. Village Danta had the different identity in India’s map. Thakur Madan Singh ji’s donation of “sone ki mooth ki talwar”, which was made up of gold, for the national security fund during the Indo-China war had listed the name of ‘Danta’ village in pages of history. Along with his name as the recognition, he had also added the village’s name. He, as the ruler of this estate, had supported as the pillar of this village at all the times.
This is the information about the history and the present, at some instances, of the Dantagram village. We have tried to put the light on some facts and figures of the village. Hope you like it!
