Shekhawati is literally one big open air museum. Add colour, food and bazaars to it and you have a holiday destination for all. Bonus comes in the form of great places to stay and, if you ask the right people, an opportunity to buy genuinely old artifacts and artistic items of household use. You could even buy an old haveli and own some historical real estate for yourself. Shekhawati is a region comprising many towns and villages, not easy to keep track of.
