Jhunjhunu district is a district of the Indian state Rajasthan in western India. The town Jhunjhunu is the district headquarters. Jhunjhunu is the only district in India which has contributed maximum number of soldiers in Indian Army. As an average every house has one or more soldier serving in Indian Army.HistoryJhunjhunu district is part of Shekhawati Region. Jhunjhunu was founded and ruled by the Kaimkhani Nawabs till 1730. Nawab Rooh Ullah Khan was the last Nawab of Jhunjhunu. The Nawabs ruled over Jhunjhunu for 280 years. Rooh Ullah Khan had imposed great faith in Shardul Singh and he acted as his Diwan. Shardul Singh was a bold and efficient administrator but he deceived to Nawab. He occupied Jhunjhunu after the death of Rohilla Khan in 1730 A.D.It was by dint of his subtle political demeanour that Maharao Shardul Singh occupied Jhunjhunu & ruled over it for 12 years. After his death the estate was divided equally among his five sons. Their descendants continued to rule over it till Indian Independence in 1947. Shardul Singh's religious belief was instrumental in him having built many temples such as Kalyan Ji Mandir & Gopinath Ji Ka mandir at Jhunjhunu. To commemorate Maharao Shardul Singh, his sons made a monumental dome at Parasrampura ordorned with fresco paintings.District LocationThe district falls within Shekhawati region, and is bounded on the northeast and east by Haryana state, on the southeast, south, and southwest by Sikar District, and on the northwest and north by Churu District.
