Art es­cape

India Today - - TRAVEL -

Shekhawati There’s a vin­tage charm about this part of Ra­jasthan— it feels like you’re tak­ing a trip back to the days of lore. Shekhawati re­gion, en­com­pass­ing the ar­eas of Jhun­jhunu, Dun­lodh, Nawal­garh, Mukundgarh and Mandawa is one of the most ar­chi­tec­turally rich ar­eas of the state and is dubbed as the open art gallery of Ra­jasthan. Make it a point to stay in a fort- turned- her­itage- ho­tel, most of which are also adorned with fres­coes which this re­gion is fa­mous for. Mar­vel at the bril­liant crafts­man­ship of the Ra­jput rulers— the havelis are noted for their fres­coes de­pict­ing mytho­log­i­cal themes.
