Incredible Journey to see Various Facets of India

Dundlod - Rough, Petrified But Gorgeous

A holiday trip to Dundlod will give you a chance to explore the in-depths of Rajasthan, the untouched chapters of rural culture and tradition, the unsung melodies that the major destinations of this colourful state will never be able to tell you. You come here for camels, temples, fortresses and palaces, and the famous Horse safari and might have had enough memories by now. Now try to dive deep into the simple ambiance of colour and artistry, of royal and reality. The tiny village town of Dundlod in Rajsathan is like a bambino amidst biggies, is situated at 7 km north of Nawalgarh. Its lousy fort was built in 1750 by maharajah Keshari Singh, while further additions were made later, until late 19th century. Members of the wealthy Goenka merchant family also settled at Dundlod, their prosperity being endorsed by the richly painted mansions dotting the terrain. Present inside the contours of the Shekhawati region, this erstwhile village accounts for some exquisite frescoes that decorate the walls and the ceilings of the merchant mansions.
