Jhunjunu Tour

Jhunjunu Tour - Mahendra India Travel

One of the prosperous districts in Rajasthan, Jhunjhunu is the place of the business magnets and modern farmers.

Founded by the Kaimkhani Nawabs in the 15th century, Jhunjhunu remained in their control until Rajput ruler Sardul Singh took over in 1730 AD. The British based the local Shekhawati brigade in Jhunjhunu in the 1830s to halt the activities of the bandits.

Another tale has it that the Pandavas bathed their weapons in the Surya Kund here and thereby got salvation. On the occasion of Bhadrapad Amavasya, hundreds of people throng this place to take a dip in the holy water.

Stories of valor abound in the region. Innumerable monuments are connected with lives and tales of warriors of Jhunjhunu. The havelis of the rich and famous attract the tourists with the fresco paintings in different colors and shades. The culture and history of Jhunjhunu is very well depicted in these paintings. However, these havelis now lie vacant.

Ranisatiji Mandir: Allowing a panoramic view, this temple is one of the ancient pilgrimage sites in the country. The temple is indeed a marvel of construction.

Bihari Ji Temple: Known for its antique paintings, this temple contains some beautiful murals.

The Sati Chowk: With an edifice in white marble, this chowk has a magnificent portrayal of Rani Sati in the Pradhan Mand. Some of the places worth a visit are Mertani Baori, Laxminath Temple, Badal Garh, Ajeet Sagar, etc.

The Modi and Tiberwala Haveli: Covered with murals, these havelis are big draws for tourists. Age old architecture is on display in these once-inhabited havelis.

Badani Chand Well: The well is placed on the north west side of the town surmounted by four imposing minarets. It was treated like a temple since water is of immense importance in the desert. There is a small sacred temple for the Hindus at this well and it is named after Hanuman. The well was decorated with rich paintings and one of the four pavilion was erected nearby so that women folks could gather and exchange news. Nearby is an old inn for the caravans to take a halt during their journey.

Ajit Sagar Lake: To the farthest north of Jhunjhunu is the picturesque artificial Ajit Sagar Lake, built by Jitmai Khaitan in 1902. The Lake filled by rain water comes running down from the sides of the Moda Pahar and very seldom dries up. Pavilions are constructed on each corner of the lake where paintings are carved beautifully beneath the dome. Peoples generally quench their thirst from the lake.

Mertani Baori Well: North west to the fort and named after Mertani, the widow of Sardul Singh ,it was built in 1783 AD. Recently restored, the stepwell is 30 m deep and its sulphuric waters are said to contain skin diseases. The sides of the well give access to a series of cool rooms in which visitors could rest on their way.

Dargah of Kamaruddin Shah: South of Kana Pahar lies the blueish coloured Dargah from where a good view of the town can be seen. A ramp leads to the entrance and the steps lead to the roof top from the court yard. Kali Pahari is to the east of the Dargah. The Dargah complex consists of a madrassa, a mosque and a mehfilkhana, at which religious fest are held. Also seen are the fragmants of paintings depicting floral motifs around the courtyard.

Khetri Mahal: Small byelanes lead to the Khetri Mahal, considered one of the finest buildings in Shekhawati region. The palace dates back to the period of 1770 and was built by Bhopal Singh, the founder of Khetri. There are no doors and windows in the palace but intrinsic series of arches and columns gives an elegant symmetry to the mansion. The private chambers contain two small alcoves which retain the fragmants of paintings in natural earth pigments.
