This ancient township was founded by Raja Bhagwan Das, the then ruler of Amber in the later half of sixteenth century and was made capital of Madho Singh, brother of Raja Man Singh. The remains at Bhangadh consist of fort walls, bazars, havelis, temples, royal palaces, maqbara, etc. Among temples, important are Gopinath temple, Somesvara temple, Keshava Rai temple, and Mangla Devi temple. The royal palace is said to have seven storeys known asSatamahala but now only four storeys remain. A stone inscription on the bank of the Som Sagar Talav, 5 km away from Bhangadh, reveals that Madho Singh was Diwan in the court of Mughal emperor Akbar.
