Alsisar holidays

The Shekhawati (or Garden of Shekha) region of Rajasthan was named after Rao Shekhaji of Amarsar and was an independent state between 1471 and 1738. Today the area is primarily associated with the rich and colourful frescoes that decorate the Haveli’s, or mansions, of the local Marwari merchants. The frescoes adorn both the exterior and interior of the Haveli’s and cover a diverse subject matter ranging from sacred to secular and folk to historical scenes. The villages of Alsisar, Mandawa, Dunlod, Nawalgarh and Fatehpur have some of the finest art work and collectively form an “open air art-gallery” that claims to have one of the largest concentrations of frescoes in the world.
