The Dadhikar Fort, Almost 1100 year ago, around 9-10 century, a residential camp was made in the dense forests amidst the Aravali Hills in Matsya Janpad area by a deserted family of King Chand who had to leave his capital named Abhanagari ( the place of grace), now known as Abhaneri after having lost everything in flood there. The word ‘Dera’ denotes camp and thus, place was called as ‘Derakar’ i.e to make a camp. Gradually with the passage of time the name changed and now it is known as Dadhikar, Alwar.
