[Introduction] [When to go] [Jaipur] [Hotel Diggi Palace, Jaipur] [Bikaner] [Hotel Bhairon Niwas, Bikaner]
[Nawalgarh] [Shekhawati Guest House, Nawalgarh]


Unless you are deeply into historical paintings and art, Nawalgarh is worth only an hours stop enroute from Bikaner to Jaipur. Start from Bikaner early, turn left after reaching Fatehgarh. The road becomes bumpy and narrow. Be sure not to enter the town of Mandawa on the way as you will (like us) get stuck in endless traffic jams. Just before the village there is a bypass. In about 5 hrs you should be in Nawalgarh.

My recommendation would be to fix up a guide beforehand who can show you around the village in about an hour and then you take the road to Sikar and onwards to Jaipur ( 2 1/2 hrs drive). Our guide was Bablu ( +919828191232) who charged us Rs 150/- for the tour.

If you want to experience the feel of rural Rajasthan, as we did, you could stay at the Shekhawati Guest House.
