Mandawa Travel Guide
 
Mandawa is a beautiful small city that lies in the heart of the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan. It is known throughout the state for its splendid forts, heritage havelis and fresco art. The structure of this place reminds one of the cultural and social hotspot this place used to be in the bygone era. Mandawa is situated in the north of Rajasthan around 190 km off Jaipur, the capital of the state. The fort town of Mandawa is well connected with the other places in region through a good network of roads. Mandawa provides the visitors with a sense of discovery at every turn; battlements that offer spectacular views of the town below, a whimsical peacock weather van, and an arched window that overlooks the verdant garden visited by peacocks.

Founded in the 18th century, the medieval fort of Mandawa dominates the town with a painted arched gateway adorned with Lord Krishna and his cows. The Chokhani and Ladia havelis and the street with Saraf havelis are some of the splendid examples of this region's havelis. The Binsidhar Newatia Haveli has some curious paintings on its outer eastern wall-a boy using a telephone, and a European woman in a car driven by a chauffeur. The Gulab Rai Ladia Haveli has some defaced erotic images.
