Patwon ki Haveli, located near the Patwa Complex, is the first haveli constructed in Jaisalmer. It’s a combination of five different havelis, constructed at the same time. Still, it’s impossible to locate the joints between them. Second largest haveli in Jaisalmer is Nathmal Ji Ki Haveli, constructed by Diwan Mohata Nathmal, the then Prime Minister of Jaisalmer. An interesting fact about this mansion is that two brothers, namely Hathi and Lulu started constructing two havelis at different places. Due to lack of proper instruments, they ended up joining these two mansions without any similarity. Even today, these two facets can be easily recognized due to their different shapes.
