Havelis of Nawalgarh,Shekhawati

We were in Shekhawati region for 3 days and so each day we kept visiting the important towns nearby Mandawa.
The town which we visited the second day was Nawalgarh.Like Mandawa this town also has got its fair share of havelis,some renovated,some looked after by the caretakers and some turned into schools.

Beautiful where the paintings and frescoes,and we found a lot of european influences in the paintings in Nawalgarh havelis which we visited.
