Just at 54 km east of the Pink City, Dausa is an ancient town of archeological significance. It once had the pleasure of being the first capital of the quomdam Kacchawaha clan of Dhundhar. This happened in 1037 AD, when Rajput king, Duleh Rai, annexed the land from the tribe of Susawat Minas and made Dausa his capital city. Now it is a silent spectator of the bygone glory with an old fort in one side and small havelis dotted all over the terrain.
