 Mandawa jhunjhunu jhunjhunu Became The Capital of Shekhawati Region
From then on, jhunjhunu became the capital of an extended Shekhawati. On Sardul's death in 1752, the kingdom was torn equally amongst his five sons. Each Singh son had his own palace built, and ruled more or less autonomously. The 19th century was, of course, the time of the British, and jhunjhunu became an important base. It was in jhunjhunu that the British based their Shekhawati Brigade, a troop raised locally in the 1830s to put a stop to the activities of dacoits in the area. The British commanders lived like kings, like Major Forster who was the virtual ruler for several years and who even built a new sector in town called Forsterganj. The Major was also very popular, for he built both a mosque and a temple for the people.
