"Gateway to Thar Desert"

Churu Tourism

At the edge of the Thar desert and situated amidst the shifting golden sand dunes, lies a small city called Churu, resplendent with havelis, fresco paintings and unique architecture. Known as the 'Gateway to the Thar desert', Churu lies in the historic Shekhawati region in northern Rajasthan.

Churu is a popular attraction for tourists due to its architecture - the grand palaces of havelis of Kanhaiya Lal Bagla and Surana, and its 400-year-old fort, among other things. The city is a perfect weekend getaway spot from New Delhi.

More on Churu

The town of Churu has a history dating back to 1620 AD when it is believed to be have been founded by the Rajputs. The name Churu came about from the Rajput ruler Choru Jat, from the Jangladesh region in Rajasthan. The Rajputs were the primary dynasty in power in Churu, and after the war of 1871, it became a part of Bikaner. Following India’s independence in 1947, the Bikaner State was reorganized and the district thus came into existence.

Churu has some delicious traditional Rajasthani dishes to offer and believe us, this is one cuisine that is so deeply connected to Indian roots that it will certainly make you forget about the home cooked food that you were longing for.
