Alsisar is a small town in Jhunjhunu district, Rajasthan, India. It is a small desert town of Shekhawati region, which is located in the north-eastern Rajasthan, India. The area surrounding the town is an arid semi desert.

 

Like other places in Shekhawati, Alsisar is also famous for its Castle, Havelis and Cenotaphs and is claimed to be one of the ideal towns for rural sojourns in Rajasthan.

 

A couple of centuries back affluent Marwari traders built exquisite havelis (mansions) and painted the exteriors and interiors in brilliant depictions of mythology and folklore. The mansions gained attention only in the last two decades when intrepid visitors started stumbling upon a virtual open art gallery of dimensions unparalleled anywhere. The mansions, the memorials, the temples, the wells, the ponds are all painted with murals and motifs of all kind in rich colors.
