Mandwa

Mandwa is a small fort town in town in Shekhawati region of Rajasthan. It is situated 190 km from Jaipur. This place is well connected with the other places by good network of roads. We reached this place by road from Delhi Airport. As we landed in Delhi in the afternoon instead of in the morning, we reached our destination only in the night.



This 18th century place is well known for its fort and havelis. And we stayed one of the havelis which is converted into a hotel. We could not see much here because of our late arrival here. We straight away had our dinner on the terrace as it was already late. 



The sites we visited here are:

I think I have been to this hotel! In any case, I have been to Mandawa and the nearby haveli. So sorry though to see that many are in such disrepair. They are beautiful.
