Nathumal ki Haveli

Even more beautifully carved is Nathmalji ki Haveli, built by a Prime Minister of Jaisalmer as late as 1885. Its façade is a riot of ornamentation: flowers, birds, elephants, soldiers, as well as a bicycle and even a steam engine! It was carved by two brothers, Hathu and Lallu, each of whom completed one side of haveli. You can see how the whole looks perfectly harmonious but the right and left side differ in their details. Also, extraordinarily, the building was carved out of boulders—not dressed stone—and you can see the raw boulder faces in the fascinating rooms inside. Paintings in miniature style monopolize the walls in the interior, while mighty tuskers carved out of yellow sandstone stand guard to the Nathumal ki Haveli.
