What a beautiful haveli. We had a guided tour through the haveli and it was an excellent way to see how the lives were back in yesteryear. Cheap and easy and some great views from the rooftop.

Very well maintained and beautiful haveli. Shekhawati is less visited place but painted frescos here are must see. Poddar haveli is very well maintained and worth a vist. We visited it while on our road trip to Rajasthan. Spl. thnx to Sharma ji - who gave us insights and made our visit worth while.

This haveli is much like havelis in mandawa. It has been renovated, rather than restored. As it does not take an artist to see the difference. Also one looks forward to peek into the objects/articles that have been restored, not created to show those times. I would rate the morarka haveli over this, as that one is restored. This could...

This haveli/ big house has an entrance fee and is worth a visit just to see how the Shekhawati people lived in earlier times. The place has been restored to its earlier grandeur and maintained well. There are guides available at nominal fees to guide you through the place and it's a good idea to take them along to understand... More

A very well preserved/ restored Haveli gives you a chance to glimpse into the Shekhawati culture lived through ornate paintings in Shekhawati architectural wonders of Haveli. It is a peek into the majestic lives of rich and successful people who were amongst the handful of world's successful business tycoons and for whom Haveli was kind of a trophy to show... More

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...
