Neemrana, named after a gallant local chieftain Nimola Leo, is located on the Delhi-Jaipur highway in Rajasthan. Situated in the Alwar district of Rajasthan, the town has captured the imagination of the travellers, thanks to its rugged backdrop. Legend has it that when Nimola Leo suffered defeat at the hands of the Chauhans, he put in humble plea to have his lost kingdom named after him. And as we witness today, the wish was granted.
