Shekhawati Travel

Though not as famous as other popular destinations of Rajasthan, Shekhawati region is home to extraordinary painted old havelis ((mansions) with intricate painted murals that make the place a far more appealing travel destination than other more famous landmarks in the state. This is now without reason that that the ShekhawatiRegion is often referred to as the open-air art gallery of Rajasthan.

Shekhawati region located roughly in the triangle Delhi, Jaipur, and Bikaner, encompasses the districts of Jhunjhunu, Sikar, Churu and Nagaur in Rajasthan. Far from the crowd that throngs the cities in the state, Shekhawati is a blissful respite. The first port of call for tourists visiting the region is the beautiful painted frescoes displayed on the walls of hundreds of grand havelis, temples, forts, wells and cenotaphs that are scattered throughout the region.

The important towns where one can have a glimpse of these paintings in the Shekhawati region are Ramgarh, Nawalgarh, Fatehpur and Mandawa. Of these Ramgarh has the highest number of painted buildings.
