Churu is a city and district in the state of Rajasthan in western India. It is the administrative headquarters of the Churu district. Churu, often known as the 'Gateway to the Thar Desert,' is located in northern Rajasthan's historic Shekhawati region. Churu is a prominent tourist destination because of its architecture, which includes the stately palaces of Kanhaiya Lal Bagla and Surana, as well as a 400-year-old fort. From New Delhi, the city is an ideal weekend getaway. Churu is well connected to the rest of India, both by rail and by road. Regular train and bus connections run between Churu and other cities in Rajasthan, with buses operated by both private and government entities, particularly the Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation.
