Rajesh Jangid's Tourist Pension
The Pension is run with a strong environmental and ethical ethos: solar-powered lighting, cooking and heating, organic ingredients sourced from local farms, and recycling within the home.

Guests are requested to bear in mind that they have entered a family home, not exactly a hotel. Being a Brahmin family, we serve only vegetarian food and alcohol consumption is dissuaded.

Responsible tourism within the fragile, rural Shekhawati region: treks into remote rural communities are provided with discretion and responsibility. Emphasis remains on local, small and unique services.
The legacy of Shekhawati are treasured and preserved for future generations. Some of the activities include conducting surveys of the local havelis and organize preservation work within the Shekhawati region. The pension has partially funded some restoration work and continues to do so. This work continues through the Jangid-family established organization Friends of Shekhawati and under the umbrella of INTACH (Indian National Trust for Art and Culture Heritage).
