Famous City of Lakshmangarh Rajasthan
the grandeur and the priceless artistic passion of the past is the town of
Laxmangarh, situated at a distance of 20 km to the south of Fatehpur. It was
founded in the 19th century by Raja Lakshman Singh of Sikar. The main
attractions of the town are its fort and the havelis, especially the
Shyonarayan Kyal Haveli and the Rathi Family Haveli.

and the main fort (garh) which is situated at its centre. The imposing fort,
facing the miniature residential complexes on its west, is the identity of
Laxmangarh. The fort was later besieged by Kan Singh Saledhi. Climb up to
the heights of the daunting fort to stare at the vistas of the township that
look so small in front of this man-made structure.

Situated close to the fort is the Char Chowk Haveli, the walls and entrance
gates of which are completely filled up with colorful Shekhawati paintings.
On the facade itself are gigantic images that have faded with the dust of
time. The inner chambers are decorated with mirror work and scenes from
Krishna legends. The inner courtyards and passageways of the haveli are well
preserved but due to bad lighting it would be difficult to appreciate their

showcase scenes from a local fair, like a woman on a swing, people enjoying
rides and a man balancing knives.

paintings influenced by the European culture. These paintings have got most

woman in a long frock, sewing on a treadle machine. Another wall has a
