Havelis are an integral part of Jaisalmer tourism and its culture as well. A large number of Havelis adorn the place and add up to its regal stature. Another one of the spectacular Havelis of Rajasthan and particularly Jaisalmer, and also one of the most intriguing Havelis is Nathmal ki Haveli. It was commissioned to be built for Diwan Mohata Nathmal, the then Prime Minister of Jaisalmer. A famous story goes regarding the construction of the Haveli.
It is said that the task of construction of the Haveli as given to two brothers, who started working on different portions of the Haveli simultaneously and the net result was that the Haveli was irregular in structure. The decorative items and the paintings and carvings on the walls are worth witnessing. Statues of elephants acting as guards have been installed at main gate, and these replicas are extremely convincing. Paintings and carvings can be found inside the Haveli walls and the intricacies and exquisiteness of these paintings may leave anyone spellbound. Architecture, paintings, carvings- Nathmal ki Haveli incorporates the best of all !
