Mandawa is a tiny township in the centre of the Shekhawati region, famous for trade and commerce. In the 18th century, the Rajput ruler of Mandawa and also the builder of the Roop Niwas Palace in Nawalgarh, built a lavish fort called here.
This attracted a lot of investors and traders from all across the country and they happened to settle here. Another major attraction in this township is the Castle Mandawa. Probably a tourist's best bet for accommodation is this Castle which was turned into a heritage hotel a while ago. It might be a little too heavy on the pocket but this architectural wonder will make you understand that every penny of yours the moment you enter this posh hotel. A perfect amalgamation of ancient and modern architecture, this hotel has been restored keeping the old flavor in perfect condition whilst also adding the technology of today. This makes Mandawa an appropriate place to visit and even stay for a day, if you can afford to do it.
