Standing out with its forts and havelis, Mandawa is often known as Open Art Gallery. Marvelous mansions dot the town and make it an important tourist attraction of Rajasthan.
One of the prime attractions of Mandawa is Goenka Double Haveli, with a façade adorned with elephants and horses. Another one is Murmuria Havel, with brilliant paintings of Lord Krishna, cars, Nehru etc. Talking of painting, Jhunjhunwala Haveli is notable for striking details of the painting. Asharam ki Haveli and Gulab Rai Ladia Haveli too are must-visit sites of Mandawa.
