Salim Singh-ki Haveli, Jaisalmer

1.6
#9 of 25 in Sightseeing in Jaisalmer
Architectural Building Landmark
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.
