Churu has some of the most amazing painted hovels and free does in the Shekawati region. take time to explore them so that you are not killed by a sensory overload.

Found the havelies fascinating. From the outside just ordinary buildings, maybe in some cases some frescos but once inside they open out to present a picture of life many years ago. A hidden courtyard or two unseen from the road often with beautiful frescos one has to see.

The paintings on these Havelis, depict everything from mythology to kings to British period, Most of them are in Blue and vegetable dye was the most commonly used colour format. Depicting various element stuff like elephants, palakis, gods, godesses and more they were a part of everyday life during that period.

We had also been on a... More

Loved the atmosphere and the whole area with its abandoned melancholy feel of the place which is steeped in history.

Beautiful and huge havelis, amazing murals. If only something could be done about their conservation, both in Churu and nearby Ramgarh.
