Nagaur is a city in Rajasthan, India. It is the capital of Nagaur District. Another name for it is the village "Khatwan".
Nagaur lies approximately midway between Jodhpur and Bikaner.
- Nagaur Fort, city centre. This is a very well preserved fort/palace where water features used to be the big thing. This includes rainwater harvesting, outdoor pools and tanks, water channels on top of the walls leading from a camel-driven well to the palace, and indoor waterfalls and rivers. Of course it's all dry now. The whole place is quiet and peaceful. It's certainly worth a visit. Allow two hours. edit
- Cattle Fair, just outside Nagaur town. This is the second biggest cattle fair in India(?) and is held at the end of Jan - check on the internet for exact dates, as it's fixed by the moon, so is different every year. The fairground is about 2km south west of the town on the road which leads to Jodhpur, so an easy tuk-tuk ride. You'll see hundreds of cattle and hundreds of camels, and lots of rustic Rajasthani farmers camping with fires, bright turbans, trade stalls, horses, buffalo…many amazing photo opportunities. free. edit
- Hotel Mahaveer International, Vijay Vallabh Chowk, Ajmer Road, ☎ +91 1582 244158 ([email protected], fax: +91 1582 243158), . edit
- Raj Inn, 50m from Railway Station (Leaving the station, turn left. The Raj Inn is a tall, modern block with about 6 floors and tinted windows), . This is a clean, friendly and modern hotel with a good restaurant and WiFi. Probably the best hotel in Nagaur. Very close to the station and the market and a short ride from the cattle fair. edit
