A-Z Archive: H is for Haveli

Haveli in Mandawa, Rajasthan

The wealthy merchants on the Silk Road passing through the north of Rajasthan competed with each other to build splendid mansions, decorated with fine carving and lavishly painted walls. Today some of these havelis remain in good order, but many have been abandoned. When we travelled through Mandawa we stayed in a haveli converted to a small hotel.
