Rajasthan - Shekhawati City


Rajasthan City - Shekhawati

» Shekhawati General Information
There are many reasons for visiting Rajasthan. One of them is Shekhawati. Nowhere else in the world is there such a profusion of wall paintings, so intricate and finely executed, in hundreds of havelis, temples, cenotaphs, well and forts, as in this region. Shekhawati is today known as the open air art gallery of Rajasthan. This region has been the home of the Marwari community, which for more than a century has been the backbone of commercial entrepreneurship in India.Shekhawati is an invaluable contribution of the Marwari traders of Rajasthan. This semi-desert region is known for its colourfully painted havelis (mansions) that are commendable pieces of the great artistic tradition of Shekhawati. The name Shekhawati literally translates into ’the land of Shekha’s clan’—a name derived from Rao Shekha of the 15th century and a scion of Kachhwaha family of Jaipur.
