Sujangarh is a city in the Churu district in the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan, India. Sujangarh is on the Ambala-Pali Highway (NH 65) and Hanumangarh-Kishangarh Mega Highway. It is 200 km from Jaipur, 150 km from Bikaner and 360 km from Delhi.Sujangarh is connected by railway, too. Sujangarh junction railway station is on the Jodhpur-Delhi (via Ratangarh) BG line.It is known for its temples, havelis and 18th-century forts. Chhapar, near Sujangarh, is famous for blackbucks and its Tal Chhapar sanctuary. The Salasar Balaji Temple is 25 km from Sujangarh.HistoryThe old name of the place was Harbuji-ka-kot or the fort of Harbuji, a Rajput hero. The present town was founded by Maharaja Surat Singh (1788-1828), eighth chief of Bikaner, named after Sujan Singh, the twelfth chief of Bikaner. Bidasar, the fort, which is about 200 feet square, with walls from 5 to 6 feet in thickness, is said to have been built by the Thakur of Sandwa, who once owned the place, and whose estate is now to the west, and was altered and improved by Surat Singh.The town contains several fine houses belonging to wealthy traders. There is a substantial bungalow that was occupied from 1868 to 1870 by a British political officer specially deputed to put down dacoity, which was very rife on the triple border of Bikaner, Jaipur, and Marwar; a combined post and telegraph office; a jail with accommodation for 66 prisoners; an Anglo-vernacular school attended by 90 boys; and a hospital with accommodation for seven in-patients. About 6 miles to the northwest is the Gopalpura hill, 1,651 feet above sea-level, or about 600 above the surrounding plain. Legend says that where the village of Gopalpura now stands there was a city called Dronpur, built by and named after Guru Drona Charya, the tutor of the Pandavas.
