Sikar Tourism

One of the most important districts in the Shekhawati, Sikar is safely located in the shade of huge walls with seven entrance gates to the town. Sikar is a good getaway for lazing around, drinking in a new culture, doing photo walks and talking to the locals while gawking at marvellous monuments.

The forts, palaces and havelis with the exotic craft of fresco and intricate architecture do not fail to amaze you. Living amidst such great work of art, the locals understand art and are passionate about it. Sikar, combined with other tourist attractions in the Shekhawati region could be a great trip to royal palaces with many unheard stories, forts and the many wars they have been a witness to, frescoes and the beauty of art and culture and the royal yet humble hospitality of the royal state.

More on Sikar


There are many forts in Sikar that have historical value and are immensely beautiful. One of such forts is Danta Fort which is on Sikar Jaipur road via Jobner. It was built by Guman Singh Ladkhani in 1733 and the fort is famous for being on the top and granting a breathtaking view. Another fascinating fort is in Devgarh which is hardly 10 km from Sirkar. It was built by Raja Devi Singh in 1787. This fort can only be reached on foot so get ready for a small trek. Khachariawas has one more beautiful fort for you to visit. It is built on the ground so no trekking there. Khandela is a town near Sikar that is surrounded by Aravali hills. This town has many heart captivating forts like Bara Pana Fort, Chhota Pana Fort, Charoda, Rashora's garden and many other spectacular places.

The restaurants here are mostly north Indian and vegetarian.

- It is suggested that visitors plan a weekend or an extended weekend trip to Sikar clubbed with some other tourist attraction from the Shekhawati region.- If travelling during winters, make sure you pack a pair of woolens along as it gets chilly in the nights during winters.

Review for Devgarh, Sikar

9 months ago by Rutvi Saxena

The legend of Khatushyam Ji is not supremely popular but has its own believers among the hindus. If you're religious and want to visit all the temples in Sikar, an overnight journey to Ringus railway station and back is convenient. If, like me, you want to explore Jaipur as well, the temple is about an hour's drive from the city and will take up an entire day. Rajasthan is best avoided duirng the harsh summer months, and the sweets you will get at Khatushyam are some of the purest in India, make sure to buy them. You can make donations to the temple, and they give each devotee a little bottle of gulab ittar too! If you're a krishna bhakt, do look up the legend and offer darshan at this temple.

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

Sikar is famous for its 'Padharo Mhare Desh' attitude all over the world. It is famous for its art and culture which distinguishes it from any other place. It is also a historical city with forts and havelis containing with them the Mughal era architecture.

  What's not so Great?

The place has a semi - arid climate. It is mainly very hot throughout the year and that causes a little discomfort while sightseeing.

For Whom

Anyone with love for old forts and art can visit Sikar. The place has a unique culture that will appeal to all. This is a great place for a family vacation. The history of the brave men who ruled our country will fill you with pride.
