Maroth is a village in Nawan city tehsil, Nagaur district, in the state of Rajasthan, India. It was a principality granted by Emperor Shah Jehan to Maharaja Raghunath Singh Mertia in 1659 A.D. for his valuable services in the battlefield.[1]

It is approximately 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) from Nawan and the same distance from Kuchaman city railway station.[2] It is a place of archaeological interest for tourists.
