HISTORY OF TORDI:
The Tordi Fort was established in the 16th century by the Thakur Akhey Singhji of the Khangarot clan of Rajputs, upon the Thakur's return from victory in Kabul, Afghanistan with the horseback armies of Jaipur State. The King of Jaipur bestowed upon the Thakur the Kharag Vijay Khangar award for his excellent swordsmanship in battle. In return for his services in the victory over Kabul, the Thakur was granted the Jagir (fiefdom) of Tordi. The Fort was constructed in 1652 AD.
Tordi Village in one of the fiefdoms of the Khangarot Clan-an offshoot of the Kushwaha dynasty that ruled Jaipur and Amer. In 16th century Th. Akhey Singh, one of the descendants of Khangar Singh (the founder of Khangarot clan) overthrew the regional chief and built a fortress on the top of the hill which one can see even today though in ruins
Later the village was inhabited by people accompanying him in the battle. Some insignias near the ruined step well and some old cenotaphs in the area mark the valour of these warriors. Today the descendants of the brave nobleman are spread in a number of villages in the region. The present family lives in the fort and the palace which were built much later in the plains below the hills.
