This is one of the most beautiful and old havelis in Jaisalmer.Constructed in the year 1805 by a rich trader called Guman Chand Patwa, reflects the splendor of that time. The havelis are also known as the 'mansion of brocade merchants'. This name has been given probably because the family dealt in threads of gold and silver used in embroidering dresses. However, there are theories, which claim that these traders made considerable amount of money in Opium smuggling and Money-lending.
