Mukundgarh Fort
Mukundgarh Fort in Jhunjhunu

Mukandgarh in Jhunjhunu district has a 300-year-old magnificent fort, which is now converted into a resort hotel, with all modern amenities. There are havelis of Kanoria, Ganeriwal and Saraf, which are a fine example of fresco paintings. Mukundgarh Fort is a heritage property, a grand construction and has amazing detailing of the famous Shekhawati frescoes on the walls.

The hotel offers beautifully furnished rooms with a view of the fort's courtyard or the green vegetation beyond.


Forsterganj

Forsterganj- A British Establishment After the Shekhawat Rajputs had their high time in the power game, came the British and with them came Major Henry Forster to Jhunjhunu.

He built a mosque and a temple in the part of the town which he created – Forsterganj. This lies in the east of Jhunjhunu and was the headquarters of the Shekhawati Brigade. Forster's Jama Masjidis painted in white and green, and is a pretty fresh looking structure. There are other reminders of the well-loved Major in town, like the stone tablet installed by the Major himself.


Kamruddin Shah's Dargah

Kamruddin Shah's dargah (shrine) is a complex at the foot of the Kana Pahar hill. A ramp leads to the imposing gateway, and the views from the rooftop are really good. This dargah is the tomb of Kamruddin, a Muslim saint (born 1784).

It was built in the mid-19th century and also houses a mosque, a mehfilkhana (concert hall) and a madrassa (Koran school). Traces of murals of floral motifs are seen around the courtyard. There's also a little pyramid like structure within the complex erected for Major Forster's infant son who died in 1841.


Shekhawat Rajput's Chhatris

The Shekhawat Rajputs, too, put in their bit to build Jhunjhunu. The cluster of memorial chhatris of Sardul Singh's sons is now used as a school. They've whitewashed the place which, sadly, has erased some of the historic murals.

The inscriptions, too, have been obliterated. However, there still are some remains of paintings on the inner walls of some of these. Sardul Singh's eldest son, Zorawar Singh, built a fort for himself. This was Zorawargarh, built in 1741. Most of the fort is in ruins, but the better buildings house government offices and the town jail. The Zenana Complex in which dwelled the lovely royal ladies, now lies bare and broken.
