Raja Sawant Singh - A Rajasthani King
RAJA SAWANT SINGH
Raja Sawant Singh was the king of Kishangarh (1748–1764).
He fell deeply in love with Vishnupriya (later known as Bani Thani)
a talented poet and singer in his court.
He himself was an accomplished poet and a devotee of lord Krishna and their bond has often been compared to the love of Radha-Krishna.
Their love became legendary, and inspired much of the evocative and romantic paintings for which Kishangarh is justly famous.
