We stayed at jaipur haveli, for a designer label’s shoot.
Jaipur Haveli in Pink City may sound like just another hotel in the capital city of Rajasthan. But, let me assure you it is not. Every tourists who plan a visit asks this question; where to stay in Jaipur? Jaipur Haveli is the answer when your priority is to experience the real heritage.
Jaipur Haveli is a recently open heritage hotel in Jaipur city. Many Royal mansions in the city are converted to heritage hotels or shopping malls. Jaipur Haveli is one such homestay. It is located in the middle of city keeping most of the tourist destinations at walking distance only.
The owner of the Hotel, Praveen Seth (Bauji) and his son Vikram Seth are kind enough to share historical facts about the beautiful mansion. The building is said to be built in 1744 which means it is as old as the city itself.
• It served as a Dharamshala once, rest house for charitable purposes or travelers.
Vikram Seth’s Great Grandfather moved to Jaipur from Patna due to epidemic in 1910. He made a name for himself as a Diamond Jeweller. He was so famous that traders visited him from as far as Turkey. In 1921, Seth family purchased the Mansion in a tattered condition. After a year of hard work by 40 construction workers the
Haveli was ready to move in.
