History says that this town was established by Madho Singh, younger brother of King Akbar’s General Man Singh, in 1631. But the city seems to have been abandoned in a hurry some centuries later. The locals say that “due to some curse the whole town was vacated overnight. It was also said that if the town was ever rediscovered, the township would not be found, but only temples would show up.”
