The gateway city to the Shekhawat region. Every 30 kms in this region is a princely new state or kingdom. This area was popular for the frescoe paintings adorning the exterior and interior walls of most homes. Essentially the merchant race of people (the marwaris) would bring back stories for their families from Kolkata and depict what they saw and lived in that part of the world, so each home depicted a different story. Essentially these were small independent states under the rulership of Jaipur and worked as ministers under the state off Jaipur.
