Bagar is a city in Shekhavati, a district of Rajasthan famous for its painted havelis (mansions). Originally a centre of the caravan route from the Middle East to China, the traders of Shekhavati amassed huge wealth which they used to create beautiful painted havelis in this desert region. Bagar is known for its late-style frescoes, when degeneration had already set in. Clean and charming, it is ideal for visits to the other painted towns of Shekhavati that are all close at hand.
