Ramagrh Shekhawati is A heritage town with a vibrant spirit that exhibits unity in diversity through color, forms, art, architecture and diversity of learning experiences.
Ramgarh was one of the richest towns of India till 19th century and has beautiful structures - magnificent Havelies (more than 200), 36 Cenotaphs (Chattris), 101 good Temples etc.; which are great examples of ancient art and architecture of India.
Earlier, Ramgarh Shekhawati was also known as Chhota Kashi, since it had eight centers of Sanskrit learning within a radius on three kilometers. It boasts of the only Veda Temple in the world, which stands beautiful and unique even today!
An English traveler of the 1830s has aptly stated that, “Ramgarh is singularly striking and seems to give reality to a vision drawn from eastern romance. The buildings are all constructed from Kankar [Gravel] grey hardpan...numerous handsome houses of the Seths [Business clan folks] some of which are on a magnificent scale, ornamented and painted in various devices outwardly; the neat high wall and gateways and the cup-lard Chhatris [Cenotaphs] in the suburb in contrast with the desert around, altogether exhibit a scene deserving to be allied with enchantment.”
Now the town clearly shows signs of aging and destruction. However, this doesn’t make Ramgarh any less interesting. Old is beautiful; Ramgarh Shekhawati boasts of more fresco paintings than any other town in Shekhawati
Ramgarh Shekhawati is an unmissable experience – a space to revel in historical wonder, engae creatively and heal our lives.
