Mandawa Castle

 

Wish you all a Very Magnificent 69th Republic Day!! Hope you enjoyed watching the parade on TV 🙂 🙂

Here are a few more pics of my recent travels across our beautiful nation – in the marvelous Shekhawati region of Rajasthan

These are photos of Mandawa fort (very popular for film shooting) that has now been converted into a hotel. We had a great stay there, but found it to be a bit on the expensive side – especially for food. Even though the food was superb, it cost almost as much as the room rent for each day!

If you want value for money, I would suggest that you stay at either Roop Niwas Kothi in Nawalgarh or Alsisar Mahal (both erstwhile palaces), and visit the Mandawa castle coffee shop for a meal. Their coffee shop has the best preserved and most amazing frescoes, and I was glad I ended up there. Their restaurant is also amazing with great service, but a bit expensive. There’s another wonderful restaurant called “Monica Rooftop Restaurant” close to the castle that serves awesome food.
