Home to an 'upset queen'
Rusirani literally translates to 'upset queen' which is a reference to the Queen of Alwar, after whom the village is named. It is popularly believed that she left her palace after the king upset her and reached this village, where she felt at home. Some also say that this rural area is mentioned in an Indian epic and was home to the Pandava brothers, right before Mahabharata began.
Interestingly, this 2000-year-old village has no modern amenities like electricity and communication services. Further, transport facilities are quite weak too, thereby, making it one of the remotest area in the state. This mind-boggling existence is what allures 21st-century travellers to this place- they get to indulge in an early-civilization-like lifestyle!
Providing a unique experience laden with panoramic views, Rusirani Village has untouched heritage, temple ruins and stepwells that beckon you to visit this place. Also, while you are here post-pandemic, do not forget to purchase the local handicrafts that you can take back home as precious souvenirs!
