Deoli was established by the British in the year 1854; earlier it was a small village. It is believed that the name Deoli came from the Hindi word Devro (देवरों), meaning "Place of Gods", due to the existence of many temples to Hindu deities. It has a reservoir, "Nayanabhiram" or "Nekchal" Lake, literally meaning "good motive lake". This British-made lake was constructed to fight drought and scarcity of water. The cost of acquiring land, incurred for construction of Camp Deoli, by the British, was Rs. 368 at the time. Although most of the Princely units had accepted the sovereignty of the British, they always remained skeptical about the intentions of the annexed states. In order to overcome this, a regulation was passed, making it mandatory to keep a conservator from the annexed princely under the control of a British agent. This agent was referred to as Rokadia; although they had all the facilities they were, in a way, under the detention of the British Government. The present Senior Secondary School building was the bungalow of the then political agent, which had a swimming pool. Similarly, the famous Nevar Bagh (नेवर बाग) was also developed by the English agent. A swimming pool was also built here which has now been dumped. Today's CISF set-up was originally a prison. German and Italian civilians were interned here after the British declaration of war in 1939. Later prisoners of the Indian freedom struggle were kept here. The church was established here during the British period. It is said to be about a hundred years old. There is a medieval pilgrimage center around the Deoli, which includes Borda Ganesh, Kunchalvada-Mata, Chandali Mata, Gokarneshwar Mahadev, Ravata Hanuman ji, Gadoli Mahadev, Lakdeshwar Mahadev, Hindeshwar Mahadev etc. Amongst these, there is a story associated with Hindeshwar Mahadev of Hindoli that, during exile, the Pandavas built this Shiva Lingam with only five fistfuls of clay (पाँच मुटृठी (धोबे)). There is also a folklore that ten-headed Ravana performed Shiva Worshipping in nearby Bisalpur at Gokarneshwar Mahadev Temple.[1]


It has a CISF training center. RTC Deoli was established on 1 August 1984. It is located in District Tonk, Post Deoli, Rajasthan, which is 165 kilometres (103 mi) away from Jaipur Airport and 85 kilometres (53 mi) from Kota Railway Station.

RTC Deoli conducts the basic induction training of directly recruited Constables. It has been imparting professional and specialized training to officers and men of CISF and other private Security Organizations in addition to its primary task of grooming the Constables. This was one of the epicenters of the freedom struggle. It is believed that Birsa Munda was detained here.
