Reasons to go to Mandawa

1The Shekhawati belt of Rajasthan
The Shekhawati belt of Rajasthan

Mandawa is an important town of Shekhawati region, adorned with forts and colourful houses. The place takes you back to the 18th century when Mandawa was inhabited by rich merchants who built everlasting mansions called Havelis. Treat yourself to the unique local cuisine and take back memories in the form of locally made paintings and wooden handicrafts.

HolidayIQ reviewer Sunil Jain shares: "The place Mandawa in the Shekhawati belt of Rajasthan is quite popular for their old world Havelis. Most of the Haveli owners shifted to other parts of Rajasthan or India and hence their typical Havelis were eventually converted/renovated into hotels. These hotels are now worthwhile visits because of the old world charm they carry. In fact, the entire Mandawa town has a number of such Havelis and you can enjoy their top class services and the great architecture."

2Experience grandeur at Mandawa Fort

Mandawa is a treat for heritage lovers. While the town’s very own 18th-century fort acts as its centre-stage,  the village safari is the star tourist attraction here.

If you want to experience the essence of Rajasthani royalty, we recommend you to stay at the V Resorts Paawana Haveli Mandawa, which is essentially a heritage resort housed within a restored 100-year-old haveli. Located next to Mandawa’s 300-year-old Raghunath Temple, a stay in this resort can take you on a trip to the bygone era of Rajasthan.

This resort boasts of a chaupal-style seating area, arched niches, and numerous jharokhas. The walls of the haveli are adorned with numerous paintings depicting the culture of the state. If you drive along the Mandawa Bissau Road for a little over an hour, you can visit Churu Fort which is about 41 km from the resort.

If you are someone who loves photography, then there's no better place to be than Mandawa. However, capturing the brilliance of the region's Shekhawati art on the camera requires skills and practice. If you want a hands-on training of these skills right on the streets of Mandawa, that too under the guidance of accomplished photographers, join the Mandawa Photowalk now.


HolidayIQ reviewer Gourav says, “If you are looking for a one day quick getaway from New Delhi, then Mandawa is the right place for you to be at. It has temples, castles and above all, it has tasty lip smacking food. We went with family and friends and we had a chance to see Bollywood movie stars during our stay too. So that was an added bonus during our stay at the place.”
