Suraj Garh Fort - Mandawa

The town of Surajgarh in the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan derives its name from the 18th century fortified Palace SURAJGARH. The name literally means "The Castle of The Sun". This 4 acre fortified palace is being lovingly restored to give our guests the experience of living like a Maharaja.
Established in 1780 by ThakurSuraj Mal, BISSAU (Thikana) shekhawat (Sadhani clan) the township of Surajgarh came up with the construction of the fort, for the construction of the fort not only offered employment to the people from the neighboring villages, but after its completion also offered a safe sanctuary from marauding bandits and invading armies.
The frescoes for which Surajgarh are famous owe their existence to the many travelers who came through this region, bringing along with them stories of the lands far away, the local populace started to decorate their homes with frescoes of the tales told by the travelers and from scenes from the mythological time. The materials used for painting the frescoes were crushed cowrie shells, lime and vegetable dyes which were produced locally. The cowrie shells were used as currency at one time, but since the chipped and broken shells had no value, they were crushed to produce a water resistant base for the frescoes.
The Fort is owned by Tikaraj Aishwarya Katoch and Tikarani Shailija. TikarajAishwarya is the son of Princess of Jodhpur and Maharaja of Kangra. Tikarani Shailija is the eldest daughter of the Maharaja of Sailana, Sailana is famed for India's finest cuisine and Tikarani Shailija's grandfather has written a popular cookery book called Maharaja Sailana's Cookery Delights.
