There is an interesting story attached to how the place was built. Read about it in the following lines.

Two brothers named Hathi and Lulu were sanctioned with the responsibility of the construction of this magnificent haveli. They started building the haveli simultaneously with each brother concentrating on one side of the haveli. The result of building it simultaneously showed up in the haveli with different left and right sides! However, it didn't look too obvious and it comes into notice only when observed a bit closely.

The haveli was decorated grandly. The entrance of the haveli has two gigantic elephants carved out of yellow sandstone that look almost real. The pillars are enormous with delicate carvings on them. The walls have vivid description of flora and fauna and have been designed with lovely paintings and carvings. The haveli is a must see for those interested in basking in the old world charm of Rajasthan.
