Patwaon-Ki-Haveli, Jaisalmer

4.0
#2 of 18 in Historic Sites in Jaisalmer
Patwaon-Ki-Haveli remains a pristine example of classical Indian townhouse. Constructed by the Patwa family in the 19th century, the structure consists of five town homes, built for each of the five Patwa sons. Weave your way around this extensive maze of luxurious rooms, looking out from the glittering balconies and admiring the intricate paintings and carvings blanketing the walls, inspired by Rajputi and Mughal architecture. Made from sandstone, the entire structure appears to glow with a golden hue, intensified in the early evening sun. Plan your visit to Patwaon-Ki-Haveli and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Jaisalmer trip builder.
