The Rajput Palace of Fort Barli dates back to 1675 when it was established by Darbar Devi Das ji. This Rathore dynasty traces its descent from Rao Maldeo of Marwar. The most famous Marwar warrior to inhabit Fort Barli was Darbar Lal Singh ji of Barli who personified valour and chivalry in the struggles against the Marathas in the 18th century.
