About Ramgarh
Ramgarh famous as "Ramgarh Sethan" रामगढ़ शेखावाटी a town surrounded by sand dunes, was once amongst the richer towns in India. It was a centre of learning and was also known as Doosra Kashi (Second Varanasi). It is now a treasure trove of painted temples, havelis, and cenotaphs.

Ramgarh Shekhawati falls in Sikar district of Rajasthan an important tehsil in northeast part of Rajasthan. The town is located on National Highway 65 running from Pali – Ambala. The town is easily accessible from state capital Jaipur.

An English traveller of the 1830s has beautifully written that Ramgarh "…is singularly striking and seems to give reality to a vision drawn from eastern romance. The buildings are all constructed from kunkur [gravel] grey hardpan, …numerous handsome houses of the seths [businessmen] some of which are on a magnificent scale, ornamented and painted in various devices outwardly; the neat high wall and gateways and the cupolard chattries [cenotaphs] in the suburb in contrast with the desert around, altogether exhibit a scene deserving to be allied with enchantment." But that was more than a century and a half back. Now the town clearly shows signs of aging. However, that doesn’t make Ramgarh less interesting; old is beautiful. And in any case, Ramgarh boasts of more paintings than any other town in Shekhawati. Ramgarh is one of the best places in Shekhawati to buy antiques and replicas, especially ornate Rajasthani woodwork.
