One of the most well-maintained havelis in Nawalgarh, it also houses a museum depicting the various parts of Rajasthan. The haveli was used as a school prior to being converted into the museum. Covered with fresco paintings, it is bound to mesmerise the visitor. Strongly recommended for art enthusiasts. Do ask for a guided tour from the ticket counter.

A great place to wander around and immerse yourself in a time when Nawalgarh flourished with wealthy merchants who decorated their homes with beautiful works of art. This havel has scenic views from the rooftop.One should always employ an experienced guide to fully appreciate the experience. You need to hear the stories behind the works of art your eyes are...

Situated in semi desert semi urban backdrop, it gives us the view of c 18-19 th century culture and the religious trends of those trader families.

We visited here a few weeks ago and I really like the museum. Also the Haveli itself still has some frescoes that haven't deteriorated into oblivion. There were great things to see in the museum and even models of different forts throughout India. The courtyard was very decorative as in most havelis.

Fabulous haveli (wealthy merchant house). Beautiful wall paintings well maintained. Small charge for using cameras. Younis from the Bungli restaurant is an excellent guide for the haveli said.

This Haveli was built around 1902, this is one of the Haveli in the Shekhawati region to have been restored to its past glory, as well maintained and preserved. Now this century plus old mansion is a museum displaying the cultural heritage of the region and the people. There are around 700 plus frescoes of different size and vivid colors... More

We go for the frescoes to Shekhawati and nowhere are they as well preserved as in this haveli /museum. Seeing others after seeing this is a let down. The Frescoes have been restored and repainted and various rooms have been converted into exhibitions halls for various aspects of rajasthani culture. Though there is nothing unique in the exhibits yet they... More

I stopped in for one night passing through. I was lucky enough to find Neru (9521731470) through my guest house. He gave me a well informed tour of the amazing museum. The art was incredible and I learnt so much. Well worth a visit and give seru a call if you need a great guide... he's a good kid.

What a great place, each wall and corner of this beautiful haveli sings its glories past and history. Once a school now been converted to a very nice museum showcasing rich culture and history of Rajasthan. Highly recommended to visit
