Mahansar - 4th town in Shekawati area that I was visiting to see the painted Havelis

20-November-2012: Mahansar doesnt have any major painted Havelis;
 but the main attraction here is the Raghunath temple and the Poddar "Sone-Ki-Dukan" which has elaborated stories and scenes 
from Gita and Ramayan 
frescoed in gold and other vivid colorson the cielings and wall of this shop. 
I arrived here at 11:30AM and first went to the Raghunath Temple. 

Inner Courtyard of Raghnath Temple

The Sone-ki-dukan is near the temple but usually is locked and the Key is in the nearby Grocer's shop. He sent his helper-boy to open it up for me. Manish the helper-boy was happy to explain, in detail, the various stories from the scriptures that were etched in vivid colors on the walls-ceilings.
