HISTORY OF THE ATTRACTION
A wealthy merchant named Guman Chand Patwa constructed this mansion complex, and the first of the mansions was built in 1805. The whole mansion complex with all its grandeur grew up in the course of 60 years. The first mansion however, remains the grandest of them all. It was the second haveli to be constructed in Jaisalmer.
