Visit Mandawa & stay at Castle Mandawa | Alluring India Tour


House of castle Mandawa

Mandawa, earlier known as ‘Mandukidhani’, ‘Mandukabas’ or ‘Manduwas’, is situated in the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan. This town is known for its fascinating Havelis (mansion) and is often referred as the ‘open art gallery’ of Rajasthan because of the entire region of Shekhawati. This town is also known for its fort which has now been converted into a heritage hotel. It was founded by Thakur Nawal Singh in the 18th century who was the 1stdescendant of the Shekhawati rulers. This fort has painted an arched gateway. The town was built around this fort. Mandawa Castle which was built as per the medieval theme is decorated with beautiful frescoes and the rooms of the castle have exquisite paintings, carvings and amazing mirror work. The town of Mandawa was fortified by the leading merchant families who stayed in that region in the 18th century. These wealthy merchants of the village built a number of Havelis and baolis. Later, when these families migrated to other places, their old Havelis remained in total gloom as there was no one to look after them. Despite such ignorance, its architectural beauty did not fade and today it has become a major tourist attraction of Rajasthan.
