Well if you travel with bigger vehicle or car then leave them far away and go to from local three wheelers or tempo , because there is no parking place and roads are narrow.

IF any visitor using walking sticking or with wheel chair then sorry , no useful for go there no facility for disabled visitors . The stairs are too much for going upper floors and the stairs are narrow.

Ticket - applicable
Ticket for photography - Applicable

Must have - proper shoes & water bottles.

The walls with full of carving of motif & seamless patterns . each room wall and roof is painting with very fine details . The most rooms having the various useful things
for office , living room & kitchen . each thing is having it's own historical story and value.

Early morning is the best time to visit otherwise too much crowed environment created and very small passage for moving here & there.

There are 5 buildings one next to the other, but only two are open to the public (for money!!!!). When you pay for entry, inquiry first if there is a way to combine both entries, as you learn about the second building that is open only after you enter the 1st one. We took a guide that was just OK, not sure that we managed to gain much more than what the museum shows.

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.

This is the one Haveli in Jaisalmer, you definitely should get in. You may prefer to take a walk around and just look from outside to the city palace and many other haveli's, yet Patwon ki Haveli has a mesmerising energy with its amazing structure.
I was lucky to have come across to this tour guide named Pramodvasu, who without insisting gently asked if i would like assistance. With gratitude to his honest and pure deep knowledge, i learned the amazing history of this amazing structure which is a wander. Not only the carvings and architecture, but the reason and story behind each and every bit is fascinating. For any guidance in Jaisalmer i highly recommend with no doubt to contact Pramodvasu as a tour guide. His number is +916375450459.

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.

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,

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.

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.

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.
