Mandawa lies in the heart of Shekhawati a painted arched gateway adorned with Lord Krishna and his cows leeds to the bazzar. You can wonder through the streets where mansions of rich merchants are adorned with elaborate frescoes.
Mandawa was founded by Thakur Nawal Singh in 1755,Mandawa is known not only for its havelis but also for its Fort Palace. The structure of the palace reminds of the cultural and social importance of this region in the past. Of the havelis, the most important are the Chokhani, Ladia, Binsidhar Newatia, and Gulab Rai Ladia Haveli. Another haveli, the Binsidhar Newatia Haveli, is known for its curious paintings. There is a painting of a boy holding a telephone and a European woman in a car driven by a chauffeur. The Gulab Rai Ladia Haveli is famous for its erotic images, now mostly defaced.
