Mandawa Fort: Bask in the beauty of frescoes, paintings & carvings

Mandawa Fort is situated in Mandawa district of Rajasthan which was founded by the Rajputs in the 18th century.

Since then, the city has been garnering acclaims for various attractions with the main attraction here being the Mandawa Fort, around which the town developed. The Mandwa Fort was built by Newal Singh, the first descendant of the Shekhawati rulers

Surrounded by the mysterious Aravallis, the fort was established to protect the flourishing trading outpost of Mandawa in the Shekhawati region.

Today, the fort has been converted into a heritage hotel and is famous for its painted arched gateway, beautiful frescoes, exquisite carvings, paintings of Lord Krishna and mirror work.

Mandawa has made a mark across the world for its beautiful havelis that are a trademark of the Shekhawati region, which is also known as the world’s largest open-air art gallery.

The beautiful district is located in about 168 km from Jaipur.
