Patwon ki Haveli in Jaisalmer

An architectural wonder of the bygone era, Patwon Ki Haveli is one of the main attractions that one can look for in the city of Jaisalmer. The Patwon Ki Haveli is a cluster of five small Havelis whose exteriors are dipped in an enchanting shade of gold.

The history of this magnificent structure dates back to the 18th century. Once the residence of wealthy traders, the Jaisalmer Patwas, the Haveli was constructed over fifty years by Guman Chand Patwa and his five sons. A genuine specimen of Rajputana sculpture, the Patwon Ki Haveli is famous for its exclusive mirror work and fine wall paintings.

Among the five Havelis that form the entire complex, one has been converted into a museum that displays a vast collection of antique furniture and decorative goods. Besides this, the third Haveli or mansion on the premises also houses rich items, including traditional art and craftwork from local artisans.

How to Reach Patwon ki Haveli

The Patwon Ki Haveli is conveniently located in the center of Jaisalmer, next to the Patwa  , and is reachable by both public and private transportation. However, since the streets are small, walking is advised.

Best time to visit Patwon ki Haveli

The ideal time to visit Patwon ki Haveli is from September to February.
