RESERVOIR OF THE WEALTHY LADY

SETHANI KA JOHRA

Sethani ka Johra (The Reservoir of the Wealthy Lady) was built by the wife of Bhagwandas Bagla, he was the first Marwari Shekhawati 'Crorepati' (multi-millionaire). This reservoir was constructed as a relief project during the terrible 'Chhappania Akal', Indian famine of 1899-1900 (vikram samvat 1956). The water body attracts birds and mammals such as 'Nilgai' to its site. Some village elders in Churu say that the water in the Johra has never dried up till date.
