Roughly before 200 years, this town was designed by “Rao Raja Laxman Singh” of Sikar Thikana under Shekawati district of former Rajputana. The powerful realm of Jaipur had several “Thikanas”. The region of Shekawati was one among them. The name “Shekawati” originated from “Shekawats”, a brave Rajput clan who were ruling this region. The ‘Jagirdars’ of “Thikanas” were described as “Rao Rajas”. Later, Lakshman Singh became the “Rao Raja of Sikar region” and he was also the founder of Lakshmangarh town. Conceivably, Lakshmangarh must be the final town that was designed in Rajasthan after Jaipur. The originators of Lakshmangarh have planned the community in accordance with the architecture of Jaipur. Hence, Lakshmangarh is appropriately illustrated as minuscule of Jaipur of Shekawati district. One can find countless beautiful as well as mysterious places in the multihued state of Rajasthan. Lakshmangarh is a beautiful town in Rajasthan that has awesome ancient Havelis and temples. Lakshmangarh is a conurbation in Sikar region of Rajasthan. Lakshmangarh, often considered as a rural community, is a moderately a big township at this moment in time. This town has a population of about 100,000 inhabitants. Lakshmangarh, in line with majority of countryside townships in India, has experienced quite remarkable growth and modernization in conjunction with all allied issues that crop up from a deficit in appropriate road and rail network. However, ancient Havelis with traditional structural design thrive here. Undesirably, new residences that are built presently in Lakshmangarh are based on the practical Indian style contemporary small town structural design (essentially the roofs and adjacent walls of the buildings are often unattractive with uncovered bricks in order to cut the construction costs) that can be observed throughout North India. On the other hand, Lakshmangarh is a charismatic town where you still can observe the majesty of ancient times. In addition, Marvelous Garh: The utmost striking edifice of Lakshmangarh town lies 20 km south of “Fatehpur”. In ancient times, each and every Rajput emperor was over-enthusiastic to establish a fort for military reasons as they used to battle frequently. In early 19th century, one such awesome sight of a Fort was established by Lakshman Singh. This was built with the intention to protect the Lakshmangarh town from the attacks of next-door Rajput Kings. The locals of the town called this Fort as “Garh”. In essence, Garh is an exceptional part of “Durg-Sthapatya”, the fort planning in the entire globe as the configuration was constructed with speckled pieces of massive rocks. Unfortunately, the architectural luminosity of Garh has not yet fascinated the interest of the tourism industry till now. At the moment, this fort (Garh) is a private property. Public are not permitted to admire or realize the beauty of Garh or its gorgeous surrounding areas. This is a distressing element of its splendid history. However, one can ascend the slope to reach a holy shrine which is open to the visitors. The sight from the access ramp is quite captivating as well. Obviously, admiring the beauty of Lakshmangarh town from this tallness will entice a person to reach the top. Sadly, a security man does not allow the visitors or tourists to reach the top of the fort!!

Very good information.


The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
