Nagaur is a desert town located in the Jodhpur division of the state of Rajasthan. Formerly known as Ahichhatrapur, Nagaur was always a hotly contested seat of power between the sultans of Delhi, Gujrat and Marwar. But with the rise of the Mughal Empire, the power equation changed and soon Nagaur came under the Mughals and became a Sarkar (division) under the Ajmer Subah province. But after some time, the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan bestowed the chief ship of Nagaur upon Amar Singh Rathore who belonged to the royal family of Marwar but was estranged from it.
