Movement Indian Rebellion of 1857

Rao Tula Ram (c. 9 December 1825 – 23 September 1863) was one of the key leaders of the Indian rebellion of 1857, in Haryana, where he is considered a state hero.[1] He is credited with temporarily driving all of the British rule from the region that today is south-west Haryana during the Rebellion, and also helping rebel forces fighting in the historic city of Delhi with men, money and material. Noted as a good administrator and military commander, after the 1857 uprising ended, he left India, met rulers of Iran and Afghanistan and also established contacts with the Tsar of Russia, to seek their help in driving the British from India. His plans were cut short by his death from dysentery in Kabul on 23 September 1863, aged 38.[2]

Early life[edit]

Rao Tula Ram was born on 9 December 1825.[3] His father was Rao Puran Singh,[4] his grandfather Rao Tej Singh[4] and his mother's name was Gyan Kanwar, daughter of Rao Zahari Singh, a local jagirdar.[citation needed]

Rao Tula Ram was one of the great leaders of the Indian Uprising of 1857 against the colonial British forces. His story is one of rebellion and guerilla warfare against the stronger and better-equipped imperialist forces of the British Army.

The battle of Narnaul was undoubtedly one of the most decisive battles of the Uprising of 1857. The English felt jubilant[citation needed] over their success in this confrontation, for it resulted in the marked the close of the crucial period of the struggle in the Haryana region and northern Rajasthan.

Rao Tula Ram's Istemraree estates were confiscated by the British in 1859, though proprietary rights of his two wives were retained. In 1877, his title was restored to his son Rao Yudhister Singh, who was made head of the Ahirwal.[5]


The government of India issued on 23 September 2001, a postal stamp featuring Maharaj Rao Tula Ram.[6] Institutions named in his honour include Rao Tula Ram Memorial Hospital in Jaffarpur Kalan[7] Maharaj Rao Tula Ram Polytechnic Wazirpur Chirag Delhi the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses at Maharaj Rao Tula Ram Marg.[8][9]

Rao Tula Ram hospital is located near police station in Jaffar Pur and is approachable from Rawta mor of Dhansa Road.[10]
