Nawalgarh, Rajasthan

Located 30-km south-east of Fatehpur, founded in 1737 AD, by Thakur Nawal Singh, a warrior-statesman, whose name is enshrined in history and folklore, Nawalgarh boasts of some of the finest frescoes in the Shekhawati region. The town exudes an old world charm and the colourful bazaar has the largest number of painted havelis in Shekhawati. The fort, now a little disfigured, is yet worthy of attention. There are numerous havelis worth seeing.

Prominent among them are the Aath (eight) Haveli Complex, Anandi Lal Poddar Haveli, Jodhraj Patodia Haveli, Bansidhar Bhagat Haveli, Chokhani Haveli, and Hotel Roop Niwas Palace. The havelis still bear witness to the rich and prosperous Marwari era of the 19th century. The stone walls, split by four gateways, were erected to encircle the town.
