Jaipur to Shekhawati Tour By Taxi
After you arrival in Jaipur, you will be received by our representative at your desired place in Jaipur and further drive straight for excursion tour to Shekhawati.
A trip to Shekhawati cannot be complete without experiencing the pomp and splendor associated with the royals of Rajasthan. If you want to have a taste of the exotic, then opt for some of the eco-friendly resorts which offer accommodations in comfortable mud huts.
Far less visited than other parts of Rajasthan, the Shekhawati region is renowned for its extraordinary painted Havelis (ornately decorated residences), highlighted with dazzling, often whimsical, murals. Part of the region’s appeal is that these works of art are found in tiny towns connected by single-track roads that run through desolate countryside north of Jaipur.

Though Shekhawati is limited to Jhunjhunu and Sikar districts of Rajashtan from the administrative and geographical point of view, some parts of Churu and Nagaur districts are also considered to be part of the region. Shekhawati, a dialect of Rajasthani language, is mainly spoken here.
A trip to Shekhawati can’t be complete without visiting the Havelis to view the magnificent frescoes. Most havelis were constructed during 18th century to early 20th century. Influenced by Persian, Jaipur and Mughal schools of painting, the Shekhawati frescoes depict themes from mythology, hunting and everyday life.
There are two legends as to how the region got its name. According to one, Shekhawati was named after Rao Shekha Ji and literally means Garden of Shekha. According to another legend, Shekhawati is derived from Persian word ‘Sheekh’ which means ‘sand deposited on sea beach’.
