Jamwa Ramgarh also popularly known as the Ramgarh, is a subdivision of the Jaipur district located on State Highway Number 55, about 28 kilometres (17 mi) East-North of Jaipur city. It was best known for Ramgarh Lake which is now dry.

Ramgarh Lake[edit]

Ramgarh Lake was an artificial lake situated near Jamwa Ramgarh in Rajasthan, India. At one time the lake was the main source of water supply to Jaipur city. The last time the lake received water was 1999 and it has been dry since 2000.[1] It is situated 32 kilometres (20 mi) from Jaipur and when full covered an area of 15.5 square kilometres (6.0 sq mi).

Jamwai Mata Temple[edit]

This temple is located downstream from Ramgarh Lake in greenery bound area. Jamwai mata is the kuldevi of Kachhwaha rajputs(Rajawat, Shekhawat etc.). The temple of goddess was built by Rao Dulherao of Kachhwaha clan in Jaipur near present Ramgarah Lake and later it is called Jamwa Ramgarh by the name of goddess Jamwai. Previously this town was known as 'manch' and there was a temple of budhvai mata ji and the statue is still there in the same temple. It is much accepted view that Rao Dulherai had a dream about Jamwai Mata who directed him to conquer the area and when he won the war with local Meena Landlord he renamed the town 'Maanch' as Jamwa Ramgarh. This is a devotional shrine for the whole of the Kachwaha rajputs.


The major rivers passing through the Jaipur district are Banas and Banganga. Although serious drought is rare, poor water management and exploitation of groundwater with extensive tube-well systems threatens agriculture in some areas.


Jaipur has a hot semi-arid climate (Köppen climate classification BSh) receiving over 650 millimetres (26 in) of rainfall annually but most rains occur in the monsoon months between June and September. Temperatures remain relatively high throughout the year, with the summer months of April to early July having average daily temperatures of around 30 °C (86 °F). During the monsoon there are frequent, heavy rains and thunderstorms, but flooding is not common. The winter months of November to February are mild and pleasant, with average temperatures ranging from 15–18 °C (59–64 °F) and with little or no humidity. There are however occasional cold waves that lead to temperatures near freezing.[2]
