    A Regal Retreat
    The architecture itself was a testament to the rich cultural heritage of Rajasthan, with intricate carvings, vibrant frescoes, and ornate detailing that echoed the stories of bygone eras. Each corner seemed to whisper tales of royal indulgence and timeless elegance. While the haveli exuded an air of seclusion and tranquility, its strategic location allowed for easy exploration of nearby attractions, enhancing the overall experience.

    Awesome Haveli House Museum
    This haveli once belonged to the merchants, Guman Singh Patwa and his family. Having been largely left to decay, the building is now owned by the Archaeological Survey of India. The haveli is now a house museum and showcases some of the best craftsmanship of Rajasthani Haveli architecture. Restored rooms include the house temple, the living quarters, dining room, dressing room and main drawing room, some of which open up to an inner courtyard. A beautiful house and one that is worth visiting if you’re in Jaisalmer.

    One time visit for sure
    Situated 400 metres from the Jaisalmer Fort, but the roads are quite narrow. Other option is to take an auto that takes the longer route. The entry fee was Rs 150/- in March 2024 and we felt it was a bit too high. But yes, there are quite a few things to see. At times it can be too crowded.

Built before 200 years by 5 brothers , these 5 buildings stand tall on a crowded narrow street of Jaisalmer. Entry charges 50 RS. Parking is very far but auto-rickshaws can drop you from parking area. Lots of steps for this four storeyed building but worth viewing. Nice architecture. Very very beautiful carvings. Remains open till 5pm. First building converted to museum having old utensils and furniture at display. Will take 30 minutes if you skip museum otherwise an hour.

This is not one single haveli but a group of five havelis built in a span of 50-60 years by the erstwhile wealthy traders of the region - it has a history of its own.

The 3rd haveli that we saw is a 5 story building that has narrow passages, living rooms, kitchen and dining areas and also secret rooms where Patwas stored their gold and ornaments. We were told that all havelis were interconnected and the view from rooftop was just amazing.

The entire haveli is adorned with wall paintings, glass piece decorations, lattice work, carved jharokhas and gateways.

And guess what, on the rooftop, we met a young man, the decedent of Patwa, probably 9th generation.

Overall a must visit attraction of Jaisalmer.

It is a cluster of five havelis having beautiful architecture. There are numerous courtyards, corridors, balconies and galleries depicting exquisite carvings, mirror work, paintings and artwork. You can hire a guide if you wish and it will take around one hour to cover the entire complex.

If you are able to understand one structure properly (in my case I had seen Maharaja's Palace before), other structures in the city are similar. These havelis were built for 5 sons. Total time required was 60 years for construction. 2 havelis are open for visitors. One is converted to museum and the other is kept in it's original form. Experience the grandeur of the people who would lend money to Kings at that time.

Walked through narrow lanes to get to this haveli. Vikash (the guide) convinced me to get his services, and I enjoyed his stories. He mentioned the history with his fun nuggets in between - and took some amazing pictures. The architecture of the haveli is fantastic for someone who hasn’t been in many havelis previously. 60 jharokhas, gigantic rooms, ceilings adorned with glass, etc.

The modern equipment like the first phone, jukebox, motored fans, etc might be super fun for some, but they weren’t what I was there for. The way the rooms were built, the doors, the windows, the safes, enormous old pots, and the old haveli feels was what I was here for.

The best part was the roof. I thankfully reached there during sunset time, and it seemed like the city was dripping in gold. The view is just spectacular.

Vikash is a brilliant guide - if you end up finding him, request him. He also takes phenomenal pictures and knows all the spots.

If you are in Jaisalmer, & skipped to behold Patwon ki haveli, then you have missed the main course. Indeed very beautiful heritage with minuscule carving work & golden stones glint like Gold on building. It might be the bestest working style of that era. A very nominal ticket for visiting & took one hour approx to roam whole place.

This is an interesting piece of architecture in Jaisalmer. It was the first haveli and is a cluster of 5 havelis. First of these was constructed in 1805. It beautifully made with yellow sandstones and has mirror work, paintings etc. The haveli is occupied by the government now.

How to reach: best is to walk to this place or you may take a rickshaw.

Entry ticket: Rs. 100 pp

It is really nice to walk through these lanes. The architecture is amazing. The complexity of this architecture lies in its exquisite wall paintings, balconies that open to a panoramic view... Patwon Ki Haveli is a famous tourist attraction in Jaisalmer,
