Shekhawati, Shekhawati Tour

Shekhawati is situated in the Northeast region of Rajasthan and is the homeland of marwaris. The marwaris form one of the most important merchant and business groups in India. They developed their business acumen on the trade routes between India and Central Asia. The marwaris enjoyed protections by Maharajas and many of them built grand havellis. The havellis are mansions, elaborately and attractively decorated with a strong main entrance. The Shekhawati tour has been designed specially for those people who are very keenly interested to visit the Shekhawati region and as well as the havellis present in this region.

Around midnight arrive in Delhi. The cosmopolitan City and capital Delhi is the main gateway for travelers. Upon arrival, you will be met by an Indo Vacations representative and transferred to the Hotel.

Sightseeing of Old Delhi includes "Rajghat", the site where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated and Jama Masjid, the great mosque of old Delhi. Today we also visit the famous "Humayun Tomb" which is the first substantial example of Mughal architecture in India and "Qutub Minar". "Qutub Minar" is 71 meter high and consists of five stories. In 1199 work began on this tower which was intended to be the most glorious tower of victory in the world. This tower was damaged twice and repaired in 1326 and 1368. Before we proceed to the Hotel we drive through the embassy area in New Delhi where we visit the India Gate and see some impressive Government Buildings.

Day 03: Delhi - Mandawa (about 270 km / 5-6 hours)

The Chokhani and Ladia havelis and the street with Saraf havelis are some of the splendid havelis in Mandawa. A medieval fort dominates the town of Manadwa.

Today we drive through the desert and proceed for Jaisalmer. Jaisalmer is famous for its carved havellis (grand mansions). In medieval times, its prosperity was due to its location on the main trade route linking India to Egypt, Arabia, Africa and the West.
