At around 160 kms from the capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur is the small town of Dundlod, best known as an art gallery village. Rightly placed in the center of the Shekhawati region, Dundlod is famous for its small fort, intricately carved and designed havelis and baolis. Apart from the small 18th century fort built by Keshri Singh, the havelis of the Goenkas are the major attractions of this town.
The fort is built in such a way that the first rays of the Sun fall on this fort as the blessings from the heaven. One can see a beautiful blend of Rajputana and Mughal architecture in the building. Its motif of flowers and foliage, minarets, mythological paintings, archaic furniture, wall hangings of arrows, and shields have remained unchanged since ages. Dundlod is in the center of major other tourist attractions. The forts of Mukundgarh, Mandawa and Nawalgarh are situated within the radius of 30 ms from Dundlod.
The Gangaur festival of Dundlod is the major attraction for tourists from all over the world when a huge Horse exhibition is held here.
