Dundlod Tour

About Dundlod


A small beautiful town, situated in the heart of the Shekhawati region known as Dundlod. It is an interesting stopover against beautiful surroundings. It generates very little tourist interest but the fort here dates back to 1750 AD. It is owned by a direct descendant of Rawal who built the place. The Diwan-I-Khas audience hall is still in very good condition. Kila of Dundlod, the 17th century Rajputana fort, protected the Shekhawats, the warrior Rajputs who withstood the onslaught of Mughal hordes. Thus the cultural heritage of Rajasthan is preserved at the Dundlod fort. The shimmering golden sand dunes, which surround the fort lure and enthrall tourists and villagers. d

Prime Attractions of Dundlod:

Havelis of the Goenkas

The famous Goenka Haveli is also located here. The magnificent sight of the beautifully painted havelis is a treat to the eyes.


Mukundgarh

This town built around a temple square, where one can shop for the local handicrafts, brass items and textiles.


Suraj Pole, Bichla Darwaza, Uttar Pole

As one enters the imposing Suraj Pole gateway of the fort, one feels that one has stepped into a bygone era. Then comes the Bichla Darwaza, which turns into the main courtyard of the fort from the Uttar Pole, to face the steps leading to the majestic Diwan Khana. 


The Diwan Khana

Built in Mughal architecture and furnished with 'Louis The XIV furniture', the Diwan Khana is truly majestic. It has a magnificent library, with a very rich collection of rare books on Indian History. You can also see the family portraits, which remind you of the times gone by in history. Above this lies the Duchatta, from where the ladies watched the court ceremonies in 'purdah'.


The Fort of Dundlo

It is an embodiment of cultural amalgamation of Rajputana and Mughal School of Art and Architecture. Its motif of flowers and foliage, minarets, mythological paintings, archaic furniture, wall hangings of arrows and shields have remained unchanged since hoary past. The family of Dundlod is the descendant of Kesari Singh, the fifth son of Sardhul Singh. Dundlod castle was built by him in 1750 AD.
