Shekhavati, lies inside the triangle made by the Bikaner, Jaipur and Delhi - it is the region that lies within this zone. It is a mini desert region of north Rajasthan. The region takes the name of its erstwhile ruler Rao Shekha and Shekhawati’s actual meaning is the “Garden of Shekha'.

The region is replete with Palaces (Havelis) with beautiful wall paintings. The entire Shekhavati region has mesmerized millions of tourists and has been aptly dubbed as the 'Open Art Gallery' of Rajasthan. These buildings mostly from 18th and 19th centuries are spread over the entire region of Shekhavati. Shekhavati is rich of wealth of traditional arts, crafts and architecture.

Shekhavati is also the home to various small fortresses, minor castles, mosques, wells (baolis) and also a deer sanctuary. Ideally the region should be traversed on a Horse Safari or a Camel Safari to enjoy the semi desert formation and these well preserved wall painted Havelis. Being the northern most portion of Rajasthan it is common to find the locals as mostly Rajasthanis and Marwaris. The populace is genial and open and any visitor is welcomed with open arms and a small tablet of opium (Rajasthani tradition).

The climate varies to the extremes and it is advisable to carry the woolens if the travel is planned during Oct-Feb. There are many tourist spots within the region and stay at one of the Palace turned Hotels would be memorable. The palaces, most of them, have now been turned into luxurious hotels complete with all royal facilities and services.
