Raja Ram Bux Singh had huge treasure
Historians also claim that there was a fort at Daudiakhera in 1857,
before the execution of erstwhile ruler Raja Ram Bux Singh for fighting against British rulers.
Raja Rao Ram Baksh Singh was a rich landlord and gold trader. He joined the rebels during the revolt of 1857
against the British with a main motive to loot enemy camps. But within a year, he was captured and hanged to death
outside the Shiva temple. The East India company has no knowledge of the existence of the vast treasure inside the fort.
The history books confirm the execution of King Raja Ram Bux Singh and the prosperity of his estate.
The Saint's dream haul of 1,000 tonnes would be enough to replace all
of India's imports for a year and would be worth at least $40 billion.
But some people feel that this is mere rumour and publicity stunt to gain the popularity.
