Amar Singh Rathore is the greatest hero of the region and was known for his chivalry and color. Once Salawat Khan, the brother-in-low of emperor Shahjahan insulted him in the Emperor’s Court. Amar Singh immediately cut off his head and escaped from Agra Fort on his horse. He jumped from the ramparts of Agra fort whole riding the horse and fled, though the horse died on the spot. His daring and chivalrous deeds are still sung by the local people. The Muslim influence is clearly visible in the design of the fort, as parts of it were constructed by Amber and Shahjahan. Inside the fort are many royal apartments like Moti Mahal, Badal Mahal and Hawa Mahal. The Baradari or courtyard is painted with beautiful murals, which are a fine blend of Persian and Nagauri style. The frescoes of flowers and dancers also grace the walls of the Baradari, the havelies and palatial houses of the town are richly decorated with murals and paintings, with themes from Ramayana and Mughal-styled gardens still retain their beauty. The life and times of Lord Mahaveerji and Parasvanath are beautifully depicted in the Jain temples. Nagaur also has many old temples, mosques, dargahs and cenotaphs. The Muslim families of the town are well known for their expertise in dyeing and printing of saris and chunaris. The brassware of hardware’s of Nagaur is also very popular. The Multani Lohars (ironsmiths) are renowned in the region for their craftsmanship. It is place where a large Cattle Fair is held annually. The town is best visited during the Ramdeo Cattle Fair in January/February and Tejaji Fairing August.

Nagaur awakens to bustling life every year with the thronging of cattle, horses and camels accompanied by their turbaned owners and eager buyers.
