It is difficult to believe that one is going have a great feast for their eyes  as one   traverses through the  narrow by lanes Jaisalmer leading to this  Haveli and what unfolds as one enters is a jaw dropping experience. That is Patwon Ki Haveli for you.

Patwon Ki Haveli, is a group of magnificient mansions,  constructed by a rich trader  Patwa Gumanmal Bafna for his 5 sons. The Haveli was constructed in 19th century and reflects great art , craft work of intricate nature on stone and wood and glass.

The stone engravings, the latticed balconies, mirror work, engravings on ceilings are really extra ordinary.

My pictures below.

will be back with more on Jaisalmer.
