Region - Rajasthan's Open-Air Art Gallery
other region in India, or perhaps, even in the world, has
such a large concentration of high quality frescoes as the
region of Shekhawati. In the beginning, this semi-arid region
had only its blank monochromatic palette to offer. No school
of painting thrived till history and circumstances took
up this colorless page and made it blossom with art for
almost two centuries - from 1750 to 1930. Today, this region
is commonly called the 'open-air art gallery of Rajasthan'.
itinerary of the Heritage on Wheels is so planned that tourists
can have experience of Shekhawati Region - Bikaner - Nawalgarh
