Karauli is a sylvan delight packed in a rural ambience. It was founded in 1348AD by one Raja Arjun Pal. In those days Karauli used to be the capital of a small state of the same name. Legend has it that the ruling family were descendants of Lord Krishna, one of the most loved god of Hindu mythology. As such they occupy the topmost rank among the Yaduvanshi Rajputs and their family history is rich with tales of valour and glory.
