Raja Jai Singh History
Raja Man Singh
A highly cultured man and a great general was Commander-in-Chief of Akbar's army. He conducted several campaigns for the Moghuls and even led the Moghul army against the prince of Mewar, Rana Pratap, a fellow Rajput .
Raja Jai Singh
I (Mirza Raja)
A powerful ally of Emperor Jehangir, Jai Singh was a great builder. The greater part of the palace at Amber was built by him. During his time the influence of Persian art and letters dominated the court at Amber. Several crafts, such as inlay work in jewels and ivory flourished during his reign.
Raja Jai Singh
During his time Amber proved too small for the growing power of the state. He built the new capital of Jaipur (1712) and being a great diplomat maintained equitable relations with the bigoted Emperor Aurangzeb.
Due to the policy of appeasement, the matrimonial alliances and the solid military support offered by Amber-Jaipur to the Moghuls, this state escaped the sacking and constant warfare which disrupted other Rajput principalities. As a result, the state of Jaipur was the most advanced at the time of Indian independence (1947). Jaipur as a matter of course became the capital of the newly formed state of Rajasthan. Its ruler, Sawai Man Singh II became Rajpramukh of Rajasthan. His wife, now Rajmata Gayatri Devi entered politics and is a member of Parliament. Sawai Man Singh was a great polo player. His son and heir Bhavani Singh is an officer in the Indian Army and won the Mahavira Chakra for conspicuous bravery in the 1971 war with Pakistan thus maintaining the martial traditions of the Rajputs.
