Written By KV Singh

        The  Shekhawati Region of  India is a dream destination.  The 11-day tour of this beautiful western India is something you will remember long long after you have taken it.

On this tour that will be done by road in an ac car or coach  driven by an efficient and courteous English-speaking driver you will spend three nights at Jaipur in my  boutique heritage hotel  Khandela Haveli  ( ),  one at the 150-year old Castle Kalwar  located 20 km from  Jaipur ( ).

Perched on a lush-green hill  60 km from Jaipur is the lovely Fort Madhogarh that will welcome you warmly and served you great bar-be-cue and dinner.  You will stay here for the night and visit the 14th century AD  450-step well at Village Abhaneri.  Opposite this impressive well is the Temple of Harsh Mata  –  the Goddess of  Happiness.  Be blessed by her !  ( )

On the sixth day we will drive to  Mandawa  and check in at  Castle Mandawa  ( )   After lunch you will take a walking tour of this ancient town visiting the havelis – merchants’ mansion that have breathtaking fresco paintings on the facades,interior walls and ceilings.  The theme of these paintings are sexual love,marriage rituals,festivals & fairs and battles.

After a two-day stay at Castle Mandawa we will proceed to Alsisar to enjoy jeep & bullock-cart safari,folk & music dance shows and a visit to a low-cost children’s school.  This beautiful heritage property serves delicious,bar-be-cue and curries with the right quantity of spices.

Hotel :  Alsisar Mahal  ( )

Your last destination on this trip will be Ramgarh-Shekhawati  where you will stay at  the famous Fresco Haveli  – a charming place owned and operated by a great cook. He will give you a demonstration on making  vegetarian & non-vegetarian kebabs.

On the 11th day after breakfast drive to Jaipur to catch a flight. If you wish we would drop you off at the IGI  International Airport at New Delhi.

My wife and I invite you warmly to be our guests. We will look after you well and ensure that you have not a dull moment during this tour. I will send you a detailed itinerary for each day. You will enjoy reading it.

Except for the months of June & July please take this trip in any month you feel convenient.
