Patwon ki haveli

This is the most famed haveli in Jaisalmer. It is also the largest haveli in the city. It is said that it is a combination of 5 haveli’s. The building was commissioned by Guman Chand Patwa, who was a wealthy jewelry trader, since he had 5 sons he ordered the construction of 5 stories, one for each of his sons.

Nathmalji ki haveli

This haveli was built as the residence of the then Prime Minister of Jaisalmer, Diwan Mohata Nathmal. The construction was carried out by two brothers who were competing to excel. They both started building simultaneously at opposite ends and struggled with uniformity, which meant the building ended up having a bit of an irregular shape.

Salam Singh ki haveli

To make your Jaisalmer tour package more interesting, visit Salam singh  ki haveli located in the heart of the Jaisalmer city. This 300 years old Haveli is named after its owner Salam Singh Mahto .

It is a peaceful location where golden colored cenotaphs rise from the golden sand. Each one of these is created in the memory of a king or a queen who passed away.
