Welcome to Ramgarh
Sixteen kilometres south of Churu and 20km north of Fatehpur is Ramgarh, which was foundered by a disaffected group from the wealthy Poddar family in 1791 and has the biggest concentration of painted havelis (traditional, ornately decorated residences) in the region. The town prospered until the late 19th century, but it’s pretty snoozy today. Ramgarh’s splendid, albeit uncared for, artistic legacy is easy to explore on foot. In the northern section of town, about 600m from the bus stand, there’s a concentration of havelis, as well as the main Shani Mandir temple and the Ganga Temple.
