Overview

Rajasthan state in India has always been an abode of hysterical, mystical and royal importance. We have heard so many stories of royal families, their conquests, bravery, and trade practices are praised by every Rajasthani even now. This act, in particular, is the reason for keeping the authenticity still alive. Amidst the incredible history and ruins of Rajasthan who would’ve thought places like Mandawa and Mahansar will hold such a prospective image.

MAHANSAR - Located 200 km from Jaipur in the Shekhawati Region Mahansar is a small village that was founded in 1768 by the Thakurs. Known for its rich heritage and culture the place boasts incredible Havelis, Sone-Chandi ki Dukan dating from 1846, it’s heritage liquor called ‘The Mahansar Liquor’ which gained popularity in various neighboring states namely Gujarat, Punjab, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and even Goa. Mahansar drinks were appreciated by various visitors from across the globe and it also gained popularity in international trade fairs. Mahansar has a lot to offer to travelers wanting to break stereotypes of visiting known and exploring the unknown. If you are of that opinion too, come to explore Mahansar with ToRoots.

MANDAWA – Of all the small towns sheltered in Rajasthan, Mandawa has truly retained its charm even after several rich traders responsible for the existence of this place left the place and immigrated elsewhere. Mandawa situated in the Shekhawati region 190 km off Jaipur was a cultural & social hotspot in the bygone era.  It was established and dominated by the prosperous traders and merchants in the 18th century. The many Havelis present here are the result of construction by wealthy trader families.  The Havelis are far beyond appealing as they are adorned with colorful paintings. The walls, the ceilings, the pillars of everything you can name were designed and painted for decades by master artists.
