The Sultan Ahmed I (the first) established Himmatnager in 1426 AD to put a control on the political Activities of the Rao of Idar. The Sultan loved the place so much that it was renamed as Ahmedanagar from the name of him. Thereafter, in 1848 AD, it was again handed over to the kingdom of Idar and got re-christened to its current name Himmatnagar, derived from the king Himmat Singh ji, the ruler of the state in those times.
Idar is a beautifully established town located at the foothills of the 500 ft high rocky hill on which the Fort of Idar Gadh lies.

At first, it just looks like a white cube sitting or even slightly floating on the table... but then when you look at it from a different angle, it's not levitating at all, it's flat on the table.
