Merta is an old city. Meerabai, the very famous poetess and devotee of Lord Krishna was born here. This town is a religious hub of Hindus. Charbuja Temple which lies in the city center is a paramount and famous attraction of Merta. It has witnessed numerous battles since it was ruled by Rajputs, Marathas, and Mughals. After one of these battles had taken place, Aurangzeb constructed a mosque over the ruins of the Shiva Temple which is another famous attraction of the site.
Merta was a vital kingdom under the reign of Mertia Rathore Rajputs. After some time, Rao Maldeo Rathore of Jodhpur who was the head of the Rathore clan attacked Rao Veeramdev of Merta out of jealousy. Veemramdev joined Sher Shah Suri and asked him to attack Jodhpur. As a result of this attack, Rao Maldeo left Jodhpur along with his army and joined Delhi Sultanate.
Rao Veemramdev was succeeded by his son Rao Jaimal. When Akbar attacked Mewar because of its refusal to give away its women to the Mughals, Rao Jaimal died fighting the battle. After this, Merta was merged with the state of Jodhpur and all his sons were given some portion of the nearby principalities.
