Patwon Ki Haveli, Jaisalmer Reviews
The havelis are a series of buildings, residences and work places of a family of merchant traders who funded the local king, in exchange for protection of their trading caravans bringing opium, precious stones and spices from Afghanistan and beyond. The intricate stone carvings of the buildings are unique and a must see; as modern artisans probably do not have time and space to create masterpieces like these. The bustling market around with shops selling anything and everything from handicrafts to replica curios are an added attraction.
The Haveli seems to be very big from outside but most of the parts are restricted to visit. You will have to buy tickets and all you will do is to go up to the 2nd floor and come down. There is absolutely nothing to see from inside. So best is to see from outside and appreciate the architectural beauty.
There are 2 entrances.. One is for the old Haveli and another for the renovated one. Tourists are fooled into visiting the private one.. There are shops inside and outside. Everything looks fake. Avoid it.
A great tourist destination. A slice of Indian history. There are 4 haveli in the complex but the biggest of them is the one which is not to be missed. The entry fee is 100₹ for tourist and 70₹ for students. Its a great piece of architectural marvel. We are literally thrown into the past and get a glimpse of how the wealthy silk merchants of ancient times lived in luxury. The haveli was the home of a silk trader and is multi storey building. There is a great deal of walking involved so not suitable for those with leg issues. It takes about an hour to visit the entire structure in leisure. Photography is permitted and do bring a great camera as there are some awesome rooms.
This relic belonged to what we call the Aam Aadmi, who was so affluent that they funded the kings and royals. Loved the entire experience. Cleanliness is something to notch up. But very well maintained and must find a right way to attract more tourists as truly it's worth seeing and very little mention about it. One has to take an auto from a point to reach here cars are a little difficult to navigate through the narrow roads.
