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.

Of all the havelis visited in Rajasthan, this must rate as the best. Well restored and, equally importantly, well looked after, and with a good local guide you will thoroughly enjoy your visit. A few slightly quirky touches - the first Bush radio, the turban exhibition - but all the buildings and frescoes have been immaculately restored. Definitely a "don't... More

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

The tour in Podar Haveli was awesome. not for kids, they will get bored. If you are a history buff and like to research into history of India and how Rajputs/Rajasthani princes/royals lived then this is a must see for you..

We loved our visit to this haveli museum. It is the most beautiful haveli we have seen. But what made our visit extra special was the tour through this museum by Mr. Sunil Sharma. Not only he knows all about the paintings, but he told us a lot about the Gods and Godesses of the HIndi religion. Most interesting!

This beautifully restored haveli in Nawalgarh gives you a taste of how these mansions looked in their prime. Every inch of wall is colourfully painted with interesting scenes from Lord Krsna to the comming of the railway! The enthusiastic curator will explain it all to you in detail.
