  • Hathuwa Raj was a zamindari belonging to Bhumihar Brahmins which encompassed 1,365 villages, was inhabited by more than 391,000 people, and produced an annual rental of almost a million rupees. It is located in the Saran Division of Bihar. Sir Kishen Pratap Sahi Bahadur, who was the Maharaja between 1874 to 1896 "had the heart of an ascetic. Soon after he was installed... he set out on a pilgrimage to the shrines of Northern India and travelled through almost the whole of India. Later on he used to pass a portion of the year in travelling and pilgrimage, mostly in, Benares. Because Hathwa was the hub, it was the seat of the raja's residential palace; and Hathwa and its nearby villages housed most of the key retainers of the estate. In addition to the estate Kachcheri (office), located in the Hathwa cluster of villages, were the estate manager's bungalow, the Diwan's house, the Hathwa Eden School, the post office, the Raj dispensary, and the temple called Gopal mandir. By the 1840s Hathwa was described as having large "bazaars" and bi-weekly markets. Fort, palace and bazaar: all the markets reflecting and exercising the power and authority of this great estate were thus in place by the early nineteenth century. An early twentieth-century account describes Hathwa as an impressive standard market, its shops offering a range of agricultural and consumer goods and its specialists providing a variety of services. The presence of schools and temples further accentuated its centrality in the locality. Its salience - and its value to the estate - can also be quantified: the estate collected Rs. 1,400 per annum as professional tax from traders stationed there. (en)
