Shekhawati Splendour

Shekhawati is named after its ruler Rao Shekha of the 15th century. Strategically placed on the route between ports of Gujarat and Northern India, the region became very prosperous by imposing levies on the caravans of traders passing through. The wealthy merchants of this region popularly known as Marwaris are spread all over the world. But they still own their ancestral mansions (havelis) in their native villages and towns.

The five great deeds of marwari merchant is supposed to be build in a haveli such as, a well, a school, a dharamshala (Caravanserai) and a temple. The merchants, flushed with money, and competed with each other in building such structures.

Tourism packages of Rajasthan takes you to the prominent towns of the region are Nawalgarh, Mandawa, Mahansar, Mukundgarh, Lachhmangarh, Singhana, Parsrampura, Khetri, Baggar and Jhunjhunu. The continuity of havelis and quietness of the towns suggest bicycle tour as the most ideal way of sightseeing. A few farm retreats have also been recently set up with the idea of an eco-friendly stay. Tal Chhapar Sanctuary is a good excursion point; the sanctuary has an overwhelming population of Blackbucks.
