Embark on a 1-day exploration tour of Mandawa town and learn why it is known as the "open art gallery of India." Maneuver through the narrow streets and lanes of this old town enjoying the colorful artistic frescoes of its buildings. Also, check out some of the havelis (private mansions) including; Gulab Rai Ladia Haveli, Mohan Lal Saraf, Jhunjunwala Haveli, and Gulab Rai Ladia Haveli. Enjoy your lunch at Castle Mandawa and take a stroll in the colorful bazaars.

What to expect?

Leave Jaipur at 7:30am by an air-conditioned car with a guide on a 3-hour journey to Mandawa situated in the heart of the Shekhawati Region of Rajasthan, India. Visit the magnificent Castle Mandawa for a welcome drink.

Later on drive through the meandering small lanes of this ancient town and stop in front of the exquisite havelis. Havelis means private mansions in India usually with historical and architectural significance, such as Hanuman Prasad Goenka Haveli, Goenka Double Haveli, Mohan Lal Saraf, Gulab Rai Ladia Haveli, Jhunjunwala Haveli and Murmuria Haveli. Each of these havelis reflect the opulence of the 18th and 19th centuries when they were constructed and painted over several decades by master artists. The themes of the gorgeous frescoes vary - religious, wedding processions, battle scenes, fairs and festivals, flora and fauna.

Return to Castle Mandawa around 1:30pm for lunch. After some rest visit the various cenotaphs of the ancestors of the royal family members of Mandawa and stroll through the colorful bazaars. If your time allows, we can also visit the remaining havelis. At 6pm start heading back to Jaipur and usually arrive by 9pm.
