The place was named as Bharatpur after the name of 'Bharat', the brother of Lord Rama, whose other brother Laxman was worshipped as the family of the deity of the Bharatpur. The legend say the rulers Laxman's name is engraved on the state arms and the seal. the interesting aspect of Bharatpur history is the domination of jats in the region since 17th century.
