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.

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...
