SHEKAWATI in Rajasthan is culturally one of the richest region. Rajputs (rulars) built Forts and Palaces with tremendous rich Art and Architecture . Marwaris (buisness casts) built the famous Courtyard houses called Havelis.
More than 5000 Havelis stood in the region between 18th and 2oth century rich with thousands of colourful Frescos with stories from Krishna and Rama
Marwaris have left now for Bombay and Calcutta. SHEKAWATI is now mostly abandoned and at present the biggest “Art Graveyard “ in India.
