Found the havelies fascinating. From the outside just ordinary buildings, maybe in some cases some frescos but once inside they open out to present a picture of life many years ago. A hidden courtyard or two unseen from the road often with beautiful frescos one has to see.

Depicting various element stuff like elephants, palakis, gods, godesses and more they were a part of everyday life during that period.

We have had the unusual possibility of staying overnight in one such Haveli. It was incredibly beautiful - hand-carved and painted. Its original character and style was greatly preserved, however, as nobody has lived there for many years, there were also bats and pigeons staying there with us - it was an unforgettable experience. We had also been on a... More

Loved the atmosphere and the whole area with its abandoned melancholy feel of the place which is steeped in history.

The size of the buildings and the warm hospitality of the local people makes it special. The heritage walk is very practical as it helps you to see the maximum in the shortest time. Once you enter the older part of the town, it is another world.
