Places Near Shekhawati
Dundlod
Lies in the heart of the Shekhawati Region about 7 km from Nawalgarh. It was founded in 1750. The fort is a blend of the Rajput and Mughal schools art and architecture. The Diwan-e-khas (Hall of Private Audience) has stained glass windows, fine antiques and an impressive library.
The ‘zenana’ quarters are on the first floor featuring exquisite decor and furniture. The fort has been converted into a cosy and comfortable abode. Here the dress code and the royal hospitality accorded to visitors and guests are specially attractive. The Goenka Haveli is worth a visit for its beautiful frescoes, fine mirror work above the windows and features of florets and birds in the outer courtyard. There are better-preserved paintings in a few other havelis and chattris. A peep into the village on a camel safari is rather interesting. Fine breeding of horses has been a passion with the royals and the tradition continues. These studs are available for riding and horse safaris. A 1 day / 1 night stay over at the resort lets you sample an enchanting lifestyle. There are thikana kansamas (chefs) to dole out delicious cuisine.

One can stay at the Dundlod Fort, which is a fine heritage property. The fort also organises horse and jeep safaris. You can hire a camel for sightseeing and even hire an English-speaking guide.
