Know your Jaipur More - Kalyan Ji ki Chowki, Khatipura, Vaishali


During the times of kings and rulers, there existed a ‘Chowki’ at the Khatipura Tiraha, which was famed as ‘Shikar Khane ki Chowki’. It is being told that at the time of independence, this place also had two rooms and a verandah built. In the 50s decade, this area came under the Salyavaas village and the ‘Chowki’ was auctioned. One of the villagers named Kalyan Chowdhary bought it in the auction, which is why the chowki later gained fame as ‘Kalyan Ji ki Chowki’.

Even today, this place is known as ‘Kalyan Ji ki Chowki’. However, the chowki no more exists. But yes, this place holds a house of the same family, where Kalyan Ji’s sons Luv and Kush reside with their families.

At the time when Kalyan Ji had bought the place, the first thing he did was to get a well dug. After 5 years, they got an electricity connection as well. After that a tap was installed here, which was used to fill up the nearby farms. Now the farms are no more but that tap is still installed there.
