Many great business families of marwari community have their origins from Nawalgarh. Nawalgarh was a tazimi thikana of Jagmal Ji Ka Songara. Nawalgarh was encircled by the high Parkota (walls) consisting of four Pols (gates) in different directions, namely Agoona Darwaja, Bawadi Darwaja (literally - 'door near the well' in the north), Mandi Darwaja(literally - 'door near the market') and Nansa Darwaja. Each gate has iron doors. Bala Kila Fort is situated in the center of the Thikana, and Fatehgarh Fort is situated outside the Parkota as an Outpost. The market place of the town and layout of the havelis indicate that the original city was well-planned before construction. Nawalgarh was considered to be the most modern towns of Shekhawati.
