Sikar, Rajasthan

Founded in the late 17th century, Sikar was the largest and the richest ?thikana? (Feudal State) under Jaipur. The town was modelled to resemble the city plan of Jaipur. The walled city has lofty buildings, a massive fort and an array of splendid havelis and temples ornate with beautiful frescoes. It is now one of the two districts of Shekhawati, the other being Jhunjhunu. Worth a visit are Sikar's large market, the clock tower and the painted Biyani havelis.

There is one haveli painted only in blue, suggestive of the typical Chinese blue-and-white porcelain. Other attractions include Sagarmal Sodhani Haveli, Madho Niwas-Kothi. Jubilee Hall & Fort are worth visiting. The fort and temples of Gopinath, Raghunath and Madan Mohan with commendable frescoes are absolutely exemplary. Area closeby has Jeen Mata Temple and Harsh Nath Temple.
