Khatu - Staying, Eating and Markets

Markets

Since the Khatu Shyam Temple is related to Lord Krishna, the markets here (just like Dakor) are full of shops selling beautifully dressed up Krishna idols which are a delight to the eyes for all the devotees of Lord Krishna.

Where to Eat in Khatu

After taking the darshan of Khatu Shyam Baba, it was lunchtime and we set out to eat at Shree Shyam Mitr Mandal, a famous dharmashala in Khatu.

A short walking distance from the temple, it’s a very good place to have your meal here. A thali here is available for Rs. 40 and consists of basic Rajasthani fare like missi roti/phulkas, dal/kadhi, sabji, rice and papad. What’s more, in just Rs. 40, you can eat to your heart’s content which simply means that the thali is unlimited. The food is tasty, fresh, ambience homelike; hence I will definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a good meal here.

Where to Stay in Khatu

Though I have personally never stayed in Khatu, but many lodging facilities are available in the form of dharmshalas and vishram grihas.

Accomodation is also available in Shree Shyam Mitr Mandal which I have just described above. The premises are huge, housing a number of rooms. It looks pretty clean and is well maintained, at least from the outside. I clicked a picture while I had stopped to have my meal here. During the fair it may be difficult to get a good accommodation, so book your rooms well in advance at that time of the year. For more information, I am giving the contact details below.

How to Reach Khatu

About 115 km from Jaipur and 48 kms from Sikar district, Khatu is well connected by both road as well as rail. The road conditions being pretty good, it will not take you more than 2.5-3 hrs to reach the place from Jaipur.
