The 18th century town of Nawalgarh is situated in the Shekhawati area of Rajasthan, famous for its painted havelis. The town has a colourful bazaar, two forts and numerous fine havelis worth visiting.

These merchants’ houses are decorated with paintings depicting everyday scenes of daily life early in the 20th century as well as religious scenes. The Chhawchhariya and Poddar havelis are perhaps the most splendid to be found in this region.
