Havelis of Jaisalmer

Jaisalmer is one of the beautiful cities in the state of Rajasthan. This place boasts beautiful mansions which are locally named havelis. These havelis in Jaisalmer were the residences of ancient princes and kings. The beautiful sandstone mansions reflect the richness and opulence of the primitive kings.

Havelis of JaisalmerWe all have read about the majestic past of Rajputs in Rajasthan. Their tales of love, sacrifice, glory and valor is heard from every Indian. It is now time to explore this magnificent era yourself! Your tour to Rajasthan is not complete without a visit to the Havelis of Jaisalmer.

The havelis take you to a journey back to the royal past. The exclusively designed and artistically decorated havelis are the most frequented places in Rajasthan. The famous havelis include:

Nathmal ki Haveli-built during the late 19th century, this haveli was a prime minister's house. Its identical left and right wings were carved by two brothers. There are yellow sandstone elephants at the entrance of the haveli. These intricaly carved elephants adorn the front door of the haveli.

Patwon ki Haveli- though this haveli is the most complicated one, it is considered as the most wonderful of all the Jaisalmer havelis. Located in a narrow lane in the heart of the city, this haveli has painted murals in one of its apartments. It is constructed by the famous dealers in gold, brocade and silver embroidery. They had come from Afghanistan to China. The five suites of the building dates back to the year 1800 and 1860, which is about 300 years ago from now. This Haveli is today being used as residence. Earlier, Salim Singh, a former prime minister of Jaisalmer, used to stay here.

These beautifully carved Havelis of Jaisalmer showcases the beauty and architectural splendor of the ancient Rajasthan.
