Samode Haveli Sightseeing in Jaipur
¤ Samode Haveli

While the princes built the stately palaces and forts, their nobles were not far behind in building suitably impressive havelis (mansions) in keeping with their status. Samode Haveli is a glittering large town house built by Rawal Bairi Sal of Samode in the early 19th century (see Samode). The 15-room haveli with a medieval charm was used as the private home of the Nathawats in Jaipur city. Like the Samode Palace, this house too came to be adorned over the years. The Reception Hall is a dazzling one, with beautiful wall paintings, pillars and period furniture. In fact, wall painting is something which you'll find almost all over the state, the Shekhawati region being most popular for it. Anyway, there's also a well-kept courtyard, graceful pillared verandahs and a lovely back garden in the haveli complex. An elephant ramp was added in the 1940's for a royal wedding.

Continuing a tradition of hospitality the Nathawats converted the Samode Haveli into a hotel in October 1987.
