Nachna Haveli

A heritage hotel located in the heart of Jaisalmer city. Owned and personally run by the present Nachana family, who are the descendants of Maharwal Jaisal (Founder of Jaisalmer).

Family History 
In the early 18th century the royal family decided to build Palaces outside the fort and Nachana Haveli was one of them. Nachana Haveli is situated in the heart of the old city, which is the best location in Jaisalmer sharing the walls with the royal palace. The uniqueness of this Haveli lies in the hospitality which the guests experience because of the royal family still residing in the premises and we make sure that each guest who stay at the palace are treated like family. Nachana Haveli is one of the only Palaces in Jaisalmer which is still in its original form with beautiful thirteen rooms which are open to our guest.

The present Nachana Family are the descendants of Maharawal Jaisal (founder of Jaisalmer). Maharaj Kesari Singh ji built the palace in the Year 1718. Designed as a three story building, it is entirely made out of sand stone.  A model of the original building is kept in the lobby for display. The present owner Maharaj Kishan Singh ji was the great grandson of Maharaj Kesari Singh ji and his children Princess Divya, Prince Vikram and Prince Kesri converted a part of their Haveli into a Heritage hotel in 1996. Today the sixth generation of Nachana family resides in this Haveli.


Nachana Haveli exudes an unmistakable sense of history which transcends time. It is one of the architectural marvels of its time and remains unmatched, with its arched high ceilings, domes and many courtyards.

The architecture of the Haveli is a great mix of Rajput and Mughal styles. All the rooms have a vaulted ceiling and this dome like structure was inspired by the Mughal architecture. The Baradari has biggest stone carved pillars in Jaisalmer and reminds one of the Rajput glory.

The Haveli’s basement which was built to be the stable for the Maharaja’s horses is an architectural marvel and is one of the biggest basement stables in Rajasthan. Its courtyard is designed to provide ample sunlight and is often considered a wonderful place to relax and read a book while sipping tea by its guests.


Nachana Haveli is situated in the heart of the old city, which is the best location in Jaisalmer sharing the walls with the royal palace (Mandir palace). Being in the heart of the city, all the major attractions of the city are within walking distance, such as the famous Golden Fort which is just 10 minutes’ walk from the Haveli.

Outside the Haveli is the main old market of Jaisalmer, which is a popular place with a lot of hustle and bustle, but as soon as one enters the Haveli gate, it’s a completely different world and the atmosphere of calm and quiet descends. At Nachana Haveli, the magnificent setting combines with royal service to make your holiday a journey into the romance and grandeur of another century.
