 History

There are several mythological implications associated with Shekhawati. This place has its mention in the Ramayana and Mahabharata and the Pandavas are believed to have spent a year of their banishment here. The Shekhawat rule came to prominence with Rao Shekha Ji from Dhundhar establishing his own autonomous kingdom with its capital at Amarsar. Rao Raimal, Rao Suja and Rao Lunkaran were the successors who ruled over Amarsar. The chiefs of Shekhawat showed allegiance towards the Kachwaha Rajputs. Shekhawats were also acknowledged for their bravery and built many massive forts, castles, palaces and havelis. The present day Shekhawati is a key tourist spot frequented by a large number of tourists all the year round.
