The Royal family of Narsinghgarh is well connected directly and indirectly in relationship with all the important Rajput Royal families of India. The Rulers of Narsinghgarh were patrons of Arts and Music.

The Malwa School of Arts as known today had its origin in the Narsinghgarh School of Arts in 18th and 19th Century. Madhav Das was the artist. His colletions of paintings were known as `Rag Ragini`. The temples of Kunwaraniji and Chapawatji built by the Ranis of Narsinghgarh on the banks of Paras Ram Sagar depicted the paintings of Krishna Leela. From Narsinghgarh it was carried to Mandu and thus later on called the Malwa School of Arts.

Ustad Rajab Ali Khan the renowed singer of "Khayal Gayaki" who received many state, national and private awards from 1909 till 1955 was born in Narsinghgarh in 1874. His father Mughal khan was the musician at the Royal Court of Narsinghgarh.

Among many disciples of Ustad Rajab Ali Khan was the famous classical singer Ustad Amir Khan. The well known TV Actor Shahbaz Khan, who played the role of Mahadji Scindia in the “Great Maratha “serial is the son of Ustad Amir Khan.

The renowned and one of the greatest "CHHAYAWAD" poet of Hindi literature was Mahadevi Verma. She started writing poetry when she was at Narsinghgarh. Her father Babu Govind Prasad served the State as Naib Dewan and her brothers were educated at the Narsinghgarh High School.

The Rulers of Narsinghgarh worked diligently and carried out an all round development particularly in the field of temples, buildings, education, health and transport. They gave even-handed justice to all irrespective of caste, creed and religion. It’s a matter of great satisfaction and pride that not a single muslim of Narsinghgarh State migrated to Pakistan in 1947, which speaks volumes for the Rulers of the State. To them their subjects were only their Praja and they were their Raja and no less no more.

Whenever there was any dispute or any query regarding traditions, customs or on any precedence in the Royal families of Parmar Princely States in India, the matter was referred to the Ruler of Narsinghgarh for his decision.
