An over view of Arki:
Arki is a small place within the administrative boundaries of the Solan district in Himachal Pradesh, India. The region is one of the oldest in India it was built in the late 18th century when it was the capital of the state Bhagat. Founded by the Rajput warrior Ajai Dev a panwar Rajput, the state was formed in the year of 1643 by Rana Subbha Chand and it was in 1650 when Arki was declared the state capital. However we must note that the fort of Arki is a noted hotel in the region and is truly a lovely place to stay in. The Fort of Arki was built in 1805 by Rana Prithvi Singh a descendant of the former ruler Subbha Chand. Originally a place of the Gurkhas, but they were driven out by Rana Jagat Singh supported by British warrior David Ochterlony Arki is however located at the Indian coordinates of 31.15o N to the 76.97o E.
