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.

This place gives a good view of what life in a haveli would have been like. Worth the small entry fee

Found it as the best haveli in the area with colorful fresco paintings and a museum. One does not need a guide as everything is labeled here. 1.5 to 2 hours is required in case you want to see entire museum and take pictures too.

There is so much to see that it takes at least 2 hours to spare for this Haveli. It is so beautiful and well maintained.

We had a very different expectation before we actually walked into this Haveli cum museum, that of a boring place where some old artifacts are left to rot. However, this place was absolutely a different kind, a lively Haveli where the owners had tried not only to preserve the fresco paintings but also give you a glimpse of the culture... More

The Haveli is clean and well maintained. It's worth a visit. The entry ticket was INR 40 per person and it hosts collections like a museum which makes it interesting. It was well lit and well maintained. You do not need a guide to explain as everything is displayed well and tagged so you can visit it on your own.

Detailed artwork and nicely restored.The caretakers are well informed about their masters' lineage as theses were once the residences and home offices of the prominent business traders of Royal times!!Though mere show house and exhibit now but still reminiscent of the the bygone era.Shekhawat region of North Rajasthan is famous for old Havelis and this one is a prominent and...

A very exhaustive visit in this well-restaured haveli which includes also a lot of galleries that will allow you to know better the patrimony and the traditions of Rajasthan. One of the best places I visited in Nawalgarh. I strongly recommend it.

This perfectly preserved extensive haveli is exquisite. The paintings provide gently irreverent views of the different phases of the region's development, including frescoes of railway trains that the artist could not have seen at the time he was at work. Besides the paintings, the exhibition rooms offer a complete introduction to the arts, crafts and traditions of the region. The... More
