Fatehpur is one of the oldest towns in Shekhawati. Established in 1451 by Fateh Khan of the Muslim Kayamkhani clan, the town has a rich history. It is said that in 1799, the Irish freebooter George Thomas marched on the city with the help of the Marathas, but his designs were thwarted by the military intervention of the Jaipur Maharaja.
Because of its long history, Fatehpur has some impressive stepwells and joharas (reservoirs). At least one haveli here offers a ‘different’ experience — not because of its painted walls, but because of the inspiring endeavour of a Frenchwoman to give these fading works of art a fresh lease of life. A painter herself, Nadine le Prince bought the Nand Lal Devra Haveli in 1998. Now it is known as the Nadine le Prince Haveli. Also watch out for the Singhania Haveli with its huge painting of four elephants cradling goddess Lakshmi with their trunks, and exquisitely painted gopis. Choudhary ki Haveli is one of the most richly painted in Shekhawati, but is shut. The Outer wall wall has some interesting erotica and other amusing paintings.
