The former Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Vasundhara Raje, has been three times elected as MLA from this town. The name may be derived from "city of [temple] bells", or from the Jhala tribe of regent Jalim Singh. The first municipality was established in Jhalrapatan. India's last fort was built here.
