Excellent and informative small museum, with a friendly and very knowledgeable local guide. As well as the exquisite decoration and history of the havelli there are also a number of quirky rooms devoted to turbans, art, jewellery etc. It's the museum that keeps on giving!!

Beautiful, albeit repainted murals cover this building. The (free) guides can provide you with fascinating explanations of the various subject matters.

Podar Haveli Museum has been pioneer in initiating the display. Initially they had a school running in the same premises, and still they managed to keep it in perfect display form. Great Work.
