* More on the Havelis

The painted havelis of Shekhawati region span across four towns - Jhunjhunu, Mandawa, Navalharh and Fatehpur. Mandawa is at the center of all these, and is an ideal base to visit other towns.

Gulab Rai Ladia's Haveli is probably the most well known in Mandawa. Close to it are Chowkhani Haveli and Sneh Ram Ladia Haveli, which are reasonably well preserved. Jhunjhunu Haveli has a room painted in gold. Castle Mandawa, a fort in the heart of the town is now a mid-range hotel.

Podar Haveli in Navalgarh has gone through restoration and is now converted into a museum. Each room in the haveli has been filled with collections, where a guide will escort you through and explain about them.

Jhunjhunu is the district headquarters and the largest town in the region. Jhunjhunu's Modi Haveli is one of the largest, and has 365 windows meant to indicate each day of the year.

One of the best restored havelis of Shekhawati is Fatehpur's Nadine Le Prince Haveli. Adjacent to Nadine Le Prince Haveli is another large haveli that has been restored, but most other havelis in Fatehpur are dilapidated.
