Rao Jaimal Rathore was a Rajput warrior general of Chittorgarh who put up a rebellious resistance against the extensive Mughal army during its siege in 1567-1568. Their attempts to repulse the Mughal Emperor himself were such that Akbar himself ordered the construction of their statues outside his fort in Agra to honor their courage.

In the run-up to the celebrations of 75th Azadi ka Amrit Mohatsav, Union Minister of State (MoS) for Communications, Shri Devusinh Chauhan launched a commemorative postal stamp in the honor of, Rao Jaimal Rathore on his 515th birth anniversary here.
