Raja Sawant Singh

Raja Sawant Singh - A Rajasthani King


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.
