    Mandawa is famous for its “painted buildings” or havelies. The various buildings were painted many years ago with pictures depicting Hindu Gods in battle, sacred animals, and people praying. Over the years the art has faded, but some of the buildings, The paintings are truly amazing and it was interesting to see that people live in the buildings as their houses, along with the hotels. During certain hours the people will allow tourists to come inside their house for a tour.

    Unique Suggestions: There is very nice fort in mandwa now it converted in hotel. you can visit this fort and can have a soft drink or tea.Mandawa is worth to visit.

    Favorite thing: A one-day excursion from Agra is the best you can do... Don't stay here to long. One or two hours and you have seen it all...

    Fondest memory: Try to visit the little town nearby. A lively little bazaar and friendly inhabitants makes it worth while
