.Spread through sprawling acres the Havellis once belonged to the affluent merchants and jagirdars. The havelis in Rajasthan are widely seen in the areas of Jaisalmer, Sekhawat region, Marwar and other districts where the traders used to dwell. Visit the Patwon Ki Haveli, Salim Singh Ki Haveli, Nathmal-Ki Haveli at Jaisalmer

Many of the Havellis of Rajasthan have wooden gates which are intricately carved. These leads into a small courtyard. That courtyard then leads into a larger courtyard. Some havelis have four large courtyards. The main highlight of many havelis is the outstanding murals painted on the outside and inside walls. Paintings may be decorated with gold or silver leaf and can are further decorated with small mirror. Many of the paintings depict Krishna s pastimes, as many people in this area are devotees of Krishna.

Most interesting features of these Havelis is the minute artistic work on the monuments,which allows the wind at the same time it is a covering also.and decorative too.Another one is the Jharokhas,the window balconies.
