The town of Mandawa lies in the heart of Shekhavati. As you approach it, Mandawa emerges from the sand like a mirage. A painted arched gateway adorned with Lord Krishna and his cows leads to the bazaar. Tie and dye fabrics flutter in the breeze, skilled hands craft colourful bangles in lac and cobblers make leather shoes embroidered with gold thread. Wander through the streets to admire the mansions of the Goenkas, Sarafs, Ladias and Chokhanis with their imposing gateways and elaborate frescoes. Wind your way through two imposing gateways up to Mandawa Castle. The handsome rugged fort of Mandawa was built in 1755 by Thakur Nawal Singh, who also founded the town of Nawalgarh. Explore the castle and its museum, which houses ancestral costumes, weapons and an impressive collection of coins. There is time to just relax and enjoy the view of the village at sunset from one of the terraces.
