Gateway to Thar Desert
At the edge of the Thar desert and situated amidst the shifting golden sand dunes, lies a small city called Churu, resplendent with havelis, fresco paintings and unique architecture. Known as the ‘Gateway to the Thar desert’, Churu lies in the historic Shekhawati region in northern Rajasthan.
Churu is a popular attraction for tourists due to its architecture – the grand palaces of havelis of Kanhaiya Lal Bagla and Surana, and its 400-year-old fort, among other things. The city is a perfect weekend getaway spot from New Delhi.
