Located bang in the centre of Jaisalmer’s hustle and bustle, Patwon-Ki-Haveli is a landmark in its own right. It was built by a famous trader named Guman Chand and his sons. This massive five-storied construction has five intricately decorated huge suites with large corridors and the decorated walls that are excellent representations of the art form that prevailed in the era then.
The entire construction is made of yellow sandstone. The grandeur and the architecture of this monument add immense value to the cultural heritage of the city. Out of the five havelis, one has been converted into a museum. The third haveli houses the works of local craftsmen from the bygone times.
