In the mid 18th century, Bhojraj ji Kasubsub clan of the Shekhawat group made it a thikana meaning a Thakur?s estate. Later Mandawa became a trading outpost from ancient caravan routes from China and the Middle East. Thakur Nawal Singh, then, built a fort to protect this boundary in 1755. Gradually, the township grew around the fort and was inhabited by wealthy merchants. These merchants constructed the massive, spectacular havelis and baolis (wells) but later migrated to developed lands leaving the property behind.
