The Radiant Haveli in the narrow lanes of Jaisalmer

Patwon ki Galli

Patwon Ki Haveli is a mansion with legendary history and beauty. The interiors, rooms and everything that is part of the Haveli manifests the royalty of the Patwa family. It surely will take you to a different world as you move across rooms and floors. It kinda gives a feel like museum.

    So charming — the haveilis and the alley down below.
    Do you have pictures from the inside of Patwon ki Haveli? I believe I visited when visitors were not allowed inside so we only got to see the grandeur outside.

    • Thanks friend…..oh yeah now visitors are allowed to observe the Haveli, infact the second picture of chess board is from the living room. We could not capture other stuff clearly because of low light. Wish we had carried our DSLR back then.
