Havelis of Mandawa - Part 1.

It was indeed a blessing to have lived here for some days in a haveli called Mandawa Haveli, the best option we could have ever got, having faced a little problem while looking for decent options to stay.

A Haveli beautifully restored, a charming inner courtyard, restored frescoes and beautiful rooms, the coloured glass, the beautiful fabrics and furniture.. A place ushering in its own charm and character.We stayed in a Room called Nilesh, all rooms were named after Lord Krishna.
