about ramgarh

Ramgarh was and is still called Sethon ka Ramgarh (Ramgarh of the Merchants) to distinguish it from its namesakes. Founded in 1791 by the Poddars, who were fleeing Churu after the thakur there had levied heavy taxes on their wool business, Ramgarh boasts the largest number of murals in the whole of Shekhawati.

Unless you are an art student, it is hard to sustain enthusiasm for the numerous murals with their repetitive themes of gods, royals and Europeans. Besides, the quality of the art varies considerably, from the amateurish to the exceptional—the latter constituting a small minority. Therefore, if tedium grips you, drop your mural fetish and take a walk through town, making conversation with the locals as you go along.
