Alsisar Haveli lies tucked away in the heart of the Pink City, Jaipur. It brings back to life the grandeur of the old days and is a memorable regal Rajasthani experience for the guests. Built in 1892, and refurbished in 1994, The Haveli has been aesthetically restored, incorporating in itself the grandeur of traditional Rajput architecture.

Grandson of Mahraja Udaikaran of Amer, the great warrior Rao Shekhaji, founded the sub-clan popularly known a...s Shekhawat. Alsisar Haveli is owned by this branch of the Kachhawa clan of Rajputs. The descendants of the family have since restructured and refurbished many of their old family mansions (also known as Haveli) as well as some new ones, to give the traveller a taste of true regal splendour with modern day amenities.

... A rambling courtyard dominates the front facade of the Haveli. This area was once used for get-togethers by the men folk of the house, it is now open for guests to enjoy food and drink while they witness puppet shows and folk dance performances.

Well manicured gardens and a rippling marble fountain surrounded by lush greenery provide a haven of serenity for a weary traveler. A quaint patio (chowk), almost a century ago used by the ladies of the house, it is now open to guests for a tete-a-tete.

Its magnificent ambience captures the romance and grandeur of another century. It promises to be a magical experience.
