Dausa is a city and administrative headquarters of Dausa district in the state of Rajasthan, India. It is 55 km from Jaipur, 100 km from Hindaun City, 240 km from Delhi and situated at NH-11. It is also known as "Dev Nagari."In April 2015, Dausa reached infamy due to the death of a well off resident farmer Gajender Singh, of Jhamarwada village, during a political rally in Delhi. The resultant national furore on the media brought attention to the larger issue of farmer suicides during the last decade in India, the current agrarian crisis, the issue of seed monopolies by companies like Monsanto and the apathy of the central and state governments to this issue.HistoryThe city of Dausa is situated in the north-eastern region of Rajasthan, a region widely known as Dhundhar it was ruled by Gurjars. Dausa was an important political place for Dhundhar region. The Gurjar ruler Manthan Dev ruled this region during the 9th century AD is evident from Rajor inscription.As Dausa city is surrounded by Mahadev in five directions (Nilkanth, Gupteshwer,Sahajnath, Somnath and Baijnath),so it was named from Sanskrit word "Dhau and Sa". 'Dhau' means Swarg sa (Like Heaven) and 'Sa' means Sundar ( Beautiful). Means Swarg sa Sundar ( Beautiful like Heaven).
