The Shekhawati region is famous for its colourful frescoes. The best place to discover the legacy of Shekhawati is from the comfort of Castle Mandawa, a fortress, now converted into a luxurious heritage hotel.
Castle Mandawa is a unique blend of modern airs and traditional graces. Medieval turreted towers, palanquin-roofed balconies, blend with modern comforts to provide a delightful experience.
Here is a place where you can enjoy the heritage & charm that is the essence of Rajput tradition.
If the desert blooms in myriad colours it is in the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan, where every home is adorned with gaily painted murals that illuminate the arid landscape.
Traditionally, this was the stronghold of Rao Shekhaji, who founded a dynasty and gave it his name. Mandawa, a remote feudal principality in the center of the Shekhawati region, was a trading outpost for the ancient caravan routes that stopped from China and the Middle East.
The Rajput ruler of Mandawa, Thakur Nawal Singh, built a fort in 1755 to protect this outpost. The township that grew around the fort soon attracted a large community of traders, who settled.
When the caravan traffic ceased in the late 18th century, the traders created business empires in other parts of the country, but returned to Mandawa to build palatial mansions in their hometown.
