History

Kila Amargarh is Jagir of Parmar rulers in princely state of Rajgarh. Parmars are agnivanshi Rajputs. Their kuldevi is Osiyan Mataji. Kila Amargarh is a beautiful fortress on a hill on the banks of Ghodapachad river which later joins Chambal river.

This Jagir is closest to the ruling family as it was the first estate (fiefdom) upon creation of Rajgarh state. It came into existence since the time of bifurcation of Umathwar principality into the kingdoms of Rajgarh and Narsinghgarh. This jagir was allotted to the younger brother of Rawat Mohan Singh the first ruler of Rajgarh.

Having been granted by Rawat Chhatar Singh the last ruler of undivided Umathwar the descendants of this Jagir are referred to as belonging to the ‘Chhtatarsinghot’ sub division within the family for purposes of heraldry.

Since beginning till the turn of the 19th century the Jagir was called and mentioned in all records as jagir Killa Borkhandi. It was so named after distinguishing features in an otherwise less populated landscape of a fort ‘Kila’ situated on the banks of the Ghodapachad river and village Borkhandi located across the river and now in district Guna.

The Jagir has 27 villages with the biggest and most fertile village Kaned located near the Parvati river falling under Biaora Tehsil, while the remaining 26 villages fall under Rajgarh Tehsil.

In 1910 the last Jagirdar of Killa Thakur Ram Singh constructed a residence for himself atop a hillock in the valley of Killa and naming it Amargarh shifted his capital there leaving the old Killa, which is now in ruins and almost disappeared but remembered in active lore as ‘Juna Killa’ literally ‘old fort’.

Presently the area on government records is known as Kila Amargarh with Kila being the name of the village and Amargarh denoting the citadel of the erstwhile nobleman’s family.
