A town where you can find almost all possible colors blended in the beautiful patterns; Nawalgarh is a dream city for the people who love fresco. The traditional patterns of ancient royal havelis mesmerize the eyes of the viewer. Michelangelo would have fallen in love with these if he had seen the designs of the Havelis of Nawalgarh.

This simple city in Rajasthan holds some of the greatest architectural wonders of Indian culture. The vast entrance doors, amazing courtyards, and the rooms of these Havelis tell the story of the ancient kings of Rajasthan. Most of these structures have the same pattern of buildings; the only thing that changes is the designs and frescoes on the walls and ceilings. It is like different artists painted their story of their kings and the culture of Rajasthan in these Havelis.

The patterns of these frescoes vary and present different aspects of the Rajasthan culture. From their kings and daily life to the festivals of the region, there is nothing, which one would not find in these frescoes. Even some heritage hotels in Rajasthan have used these patterns to complement the culture of the region.
