Salim Singh-ki Haveli, Jaisalmer
(2.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Observe the distinct 19th-century architecture of Salim Singh-ki Haveli, and uncover the structure's somewhat obscure history. Upon entrance, two sandstone bull elephants guard the gateway, as they do at the city's other havelis (mansions). Examine the haveli's exterior and roof constructed in the form of a peacock, while its 38 balconies each bear a unique design. In the museum, inspect the artifacts and collected historical data, or hire a guide to receive a detailed lesson about the entire compound. If you want to avoid dense and slow traffic, take a rickshaw ride to reach the site. See Salim Singh-ki Haveli and all Jaisalmer has to offer by arranging your trip with our Jaisalmer vacation builder.

  • There are only three or four of the major Havelis that you must visit in Jaisalmer. This is one of them. You don't have to go in but you do need to go and see it. The architecture and lattice work car...  more »
  • Its just a haveli with same intricate carvings that you see across Rajasthan. Nothing different. The guide who took you through Jaisalmer Fort will give you the story behind Salim Singh and the haveli...  more »
  • Just doesn't fit in your head, as you can do it by hand from stone, very beautiful buildings, close trimmed national costumes for photo, we were with a tour guide, so that price will not say because he could throw with Seda, but he voiced for 300 rupees for one.

  • I enjoyed a lot visiting this building, more than the Patwon Ki Haveli. Entrance fee is cheap, and Mr Rajju gave so good explanations that made me feel the place was coming to life. This place is a hidden treasure from tipical turistic circuit.
  • Jaisalmer city former President place. Now living family 👪 here. Nice old Heritage but condition of building 🏢 not Good. Open for visiting, but knowing this place history from outside is perfect 👌 not need to entrance.
  • It was ok, enough to just see the outside. going inside will set you back a 100rs.
  • The Salim Singh Havelli is beautiful on the outside and the inside like almost every other building in Jaisalmer. The only special things about it is how old it is and the Prime minister of Jaisalmer lived there. The guide Raju is a total tool. I'm a photographer and paid to bring in my camera and was told very roughly that my taking of pictures was disrupting his less than enthusiastic explanations. I give this place a....... MEH!!
  • 1)Wastage of Money. 2)Wastage of Time. 3)Nothing to see. 4)It looks good from outside, like other houses in Jaisalmer. 5)It's my Free Advice, Don't go there. PLEASE.
