Jhunjhunu

About This Destination

The Indian tourist destination of Jhunjhunu is located in the royal state of Rajasthan. Jhunjhunu is the district headquarters and the largest town in the Shekhawati region. The town was founded by the Kaimkhani nawabs in the mid-15th century, and stayed under their control until it was taken by the Rajput ruler Sardul Singh in 1730.The town of Jhunjhunu was founded by Kaimkhani Nawabs in the middle of the 15th century, and remained under their control until it was taken by the Rajput ruler Sardul Singh in 1730 AD, which lasted till the Indian independence. It was in Jhunjhunu that the British based their Shekhawati brigade, a troop raised locally in the 1830s to try to halt the activities of the dacoits (bandits).

They were largely local petty rulers who had decided it was easier to become wealthy by pinching other peoples¿ money than by earning their own. Jhunjhunu is one of the largest towns of Shekhawati and is the current district headquarters. It has some of the region¿s most beautiful buildings and should not be missed. The artistically painted havelis of Muragh Das Modi, and the Khaitans are spellbinding.

The major attractions in the city include the Khetri Mahal, Bihariji Temple, Modi Haveli, and Kaniram Narsinghdas Tiberwala Haveli. There are several excursions options from Jhunjhunu like Nawalgarh, Fatehpur and Mandawa.
