Dundlod

Dundlod is a tiny town right in the heart of the Shekhawati region. It offers an interesting stopover against picturesque surroundings. Although it has little of tourist interest, the fort here dates back to 1750 AD, though much of it is more recent. It is owned by a direct descendent 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, studded with monumental nostalgia of Shekhawats, the warrior Rajputs who withstood the onslaught of Mughal hordes. Since then, the cultural heritage of splendid Rajasthan is preserved as its ethos are imbibed in architectural grandeur of the Dundlod Fort. The silent ripples of the golden sand dunes, which besiege the fort lure and enchant tourists and villagers alike.
