Dholpur , famous for its marble industry, is not a very popular destination on the tourist maps. Once its sandstone mining industry was very famous and our Rashtrapati Bhawan and Secretariat Building in Delhi was built by that sandstone only. However, Apart from its marble, it has some key tourist attractions like Nihal Tower, Machkund Temple and Shergarh Fort. They are some other tourist spots near to Dholpur that include Damoye Waterfall and some wildlife sanctuaries in the region of Chambal River.

From the tourist point of view, July is a very good time to visit Dholpur, when Chambal river is on good flow, waterfall is in best state and greenery are there all around. But, be prepared for intense heat with average 42 degree temperature, if there is no cloud or no rain during your visit.

Dholpur is about 270 kms from Delhi and 55 kms south of Agra. So the best way to reach there from Delhi is to go via Yamuna Express way. If you want to avoid the heavy toll of expressway, you can go via NH2 also. There are many express trains going to Madhya Pradesh or futher South India, connect Delhi to Dholpur (Dhaulpur on Indian railway network) and this journey takes around 4-6 hours.
