  • The approx. 90 old merchant and burgher houses characterise the townscape and are something special. Some can be visited and you can get a good idea of the splendour of 100-150 years ago. She's been predominantly. Many of the houses stand empty and the paintings are faded, peeled off or destroyed. I like this "morbid" atmosphere. Partly the Havelis are used as hotels or shops and these homes and paintings shine in new splendour. It is a pity that there is no really good guide. Our has made the same statements more or less in every home – because more would have interested us. The main street is also lined with the typical mix of shops for locals and for tourists. Mandawa is however relatively harmless. We've been nowhere penetrating approached and when we bought 2 scarves to 2 cups of tea and almost an hour "Sales pitch", we were pretty happy with our success in the action.

  • Mandawa has some spectacular houses calls Havelis, the residences of them ancient merchants, with incredible paintings in foreign e inside of them same. They are not very well preserved, but it is worth the visit. That Yes, visit Mandawa is recommended if it is part of the path, because if you go specifically to see it can be a disappointment (the most beautiful havelis are visited in a couple of hours).
