"The Open Gallery Of Rajasthan"

Shekhawati Tourism

Shekhawati is a semi-arid getaway full of open air galleries, enchanting havelis & palaces and legendary forts. This region has been recognised as the open art gallery of Rajasthan"" having the largest concentration of frescos in the world."

Shekhawati has a history similar to that of Nawalgarh where in the Marwari men went to cities like Bombay and Calcutta in search of work and the time they found success and their businesses flourished, that is exactly when these plush havelis emanated. One businessman competed with the other in showing off his wealth, this continued on and on and finally, what the business families of Shekhawati got was an affluent city to live in. The inhabitants of Shekhawati are considered brave, sacrificing and hard working people. The region provides one of the highest number of people to the Indian Army. Hence, this location makes up for a dreamscape for all those wishing to get a blast from the past.

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

Less pollution with fewer vehicles. The cleanliness and hygiene are good. Have the largest concentration of frescoes in the world.

  What's not so Great?

Because of the Jain influence, many of the eateries avoid garlic and onion.

For Whom

Shekhawati is worth including in your itinerary if you are an art lover or someone who is into history and architecture. It is ideal for a vacation with family and for people visiting the nearby places in Rajasthan.
