Nagaur holidays

Nagaur, the city-fortress, was founded in the 4th century as a mud fort. Its location between Jodhpur and Bikaner made it strategically important to Delhi’s rulers and, throughout the battle for Rajasthan during the 8th century, the renowned Ahhichatragarh Fort, a bastion of defence for the Hindu alliance against Arab invaders, witnessed many historical events. Today the town is of interest due to the impressive remains of the Ahhichatragarh Fort, which have been partially converted into a hotel, the Sufi shrine of Tarkeen Dargah, the Jain Temples in glass and Saiji ka Tanka, the reported resting place of Shri Saiji Maharaj, one of India’s most famous saints. Nagaur is also host to the second largest camel fair in Rajasthan, which is usually held in February. The Nagaur Sufi music festival, which is held over three days around February, is also extremely popular.
