Even as they were facing defeats in 19th century they concluded a treaty with the British. Since this land had many reign’s of Emperors the wealth it has enriched with is, plenty. The forts, Mahals and Haveli’s today are a mix of traditions. The Camels, Snake charmers, Acrobats, Puppeteers its a huge boon for one’s vision.
