The Fascinating Shekahawati region offers an amazing density of villages and small towns with painted facades, offering interesting vignettes of life in these desert settlements in the past, and now.
Drive from Jaipur to the shekhawati region, choosing Renval Pachar, Danta and Khachariyawas to visit for their architecture, and to observe village life.
Drive onwards via Sikar to Nawalgarh, where you will stay at Roop Niwas palace. The town has a large number of frescos on havelis and temples, and the tiny lanes buzz with small town activity.
Use Nawalgarh to explore the other towns in this region that include Dundlod, Mandawa and Mehansar, all beautifully painted, and with a variety of architecture. All the time, you are in close proximity of day-to-day events of village life.
