Shekhawati lies in the triangular area between Delhi, Jaipur and Bikaner and comprises Jhunjhunun, Mandawa, Fatehpur, Ramgarh, Churu, Mahansar, Mukundgarh, Dundlod, Nawalgarh, Lakshmangarh and Sikar districts of Rajasthan. The semi-desert region of Shekhwati is popularly known as the 'open-air art gallery' of Rajasthan. This land of 'Shekha's clan' got its name from Rao Shekha (1433-1488), a cousin of the Kachchawalas of Jaipur. Shekhawati owns hundreds of haveli's, temples, cenotaphs, wells and forts.

Besides, there is a rare blend of traditional Indian and Europen styles and subjects.
