Mandawa, India

Mandawa is a town in Jhunjhunu district of Rajasthan in India. Mandawa was a trading outpost for the ancient caravan routes that stopped here from China and the Middle East. This town has been referred to as the ‘open art gallery’ of Rajasthan because the entire Shekhawati region and not just Mandawa is dotted with fascinating mansions(havelis) that have lavishly painted walls.
