    For Art lover of world, Travelers who are into architecture, History & Heritage, the Churu & Jhunjhunu, Mandawa, Navalgarh, Alsisar, Fatehpur, Ramgarh Shekhawati region of Rajasthan is well worth including on your itinerary. Located in the triangle of Delhi, Jaipur and Bikaner, many people overlook it in favor of more popular destinations in Rajasthan. However, this unique region is often referred to as the world's largest OPEN ART GALLERY.

    The old havelis (mansions), with walls PAINTED with intricate painted frescoes, are the main attraction in ALL THESE TOWNS region. The region's background is fascinating. It was established in the 18th century along a caravan trade route, and ruled by the Rajputs. The region was a prosperous one, with over 100 villages, and 50 forts and palaces.

    Over the next century, many people from the neighboring Marwar community migrated to Shekhawati and made it their home. These rich business people commissioned artists to paint frescoes on their homes as a sign of opulence to help local artisans & workers at the time of famine and natural calamities . Painted havelis cropped up all over the desert landscape. The art was kept alive for nearly 300 years. However, eventually, more and more families settled elsewhere. These days many homes are abandoned, locked up, and neglected.

    How to Get to this area.

    This region is best approached from Delhi by getting a train from Delhi, Two Indian Railways trains depart from Delhi Sarai Rohilla station and go via Churu in the morning hours and another at the late night to Bikaner. Travel time is approximately 4.5 hours. There are more frequent departures from Jaipur & Bikaner by Buses also, and they conveniently take you to Nawalgarh, Jhunjhunu, Mandawa, Fathepur as well as CHURU. Travel time is approximately 3.5 hours. The nearest airport is in Jaipur, around 150 kilometers away.
