The Haveli is maintained and charges a nominal fee to go in. The proprietor explains the haveli and tells a lot of stories and anecdotes.

It is one of the most beautiful palatial mansions in the heart of Nawalgarh. This 110 year old architectural marvel is considerably restored and well maintained. The walls, pillars, archways and ceilings are decorated with beautiful paintings, floral swirls, motifs, exquisite murals and superbly carved teak wood ceiling beams and gleaming brass doors. The frescoes depict many images of royal... More

You should first go to some of the more neglected and dilapidated havelis to truly appreciate the achievement of its owners. Shame that there are many others in Shekavati which cannot provide similar standards - but probably it is all a question of money. Well restored (not in its entirety, that'll take ages) and gives a good impression of what... More

This is a fab place in the heart of a sleepy town of Nawalgarh. The most interesting thing about any of my rajasthan visit is not the landscape, not even the colours of the food, its the people. The simplicity and helpful attitude can just bowled down anybody. The haveli is fine example to see the way shekhavati people spent... More

photos capturing gods and goddesses and scenes from a century back. scenes from merchants sons and son in laws travelling to far off lands and bringing back stories that the local painters heard and translated to pictures. very colorful.

Beautiful restored Haveli with tiny little "mini" museums in the womens wing. Our guide, Ajay Singh, did a wonderful job showing us all the details and neighboring havelis. The cafe right next door (Cafe Shitla) was delicious and welcoming, and be sure to check out the Gandhi room where you can see one of his original spinning looms!

Maintained well,though the contents of the museum could be upgraded,as the family clearly seems involved in the continuation of their efforts it would be really nice if the museum also housed some original texts, photos etc .... I suggest the history of the frescoed havelis in the entire region and be documented and showcased in the museum.
