History of Kalwar Family
The history of the Kilyanot clan (named after Kalyan Singh) is full of valour and courage. Kalyan Singh’s grandson, Sunder Singh was martyred in the battle of Bans Bareli. Down the linage, Kharag Singh (also refered to as Kharagsen) of Kalwar was one of the favourites and most trusted Army Commanders of Mirja Raja Jai Singh, who in turn was the chieftain of the Mughal Army. He was martyred in one of the battles in Southern Provinces. In the linage, Bakhat Singh finds a very special mention in the Battle of Hinglaj ( Afghanistan) in 1720 AD. Man Singh Kalyanot is epitomised and idolised in ‘ Kurum Vijay’ the historical recital of the battle of Manwada – Mandoli, fought between Jaipur and Bharatpur in 1767 AD.
The present Kalwar family heritage status was given a Philip by Thakur Balwant Singh with effect from 1827 AD and presently comprises of Castle Kalwar, also known as Kalwar Garh, Kalwar Bagh, Kalwar Stud, Dera Kalwar, and Buckees Collection.
