    What a beautiful post.. love how you’ve captured the intricate details of Jaisalmer’s history and drawn parallels to Venice – both along the Silk route. The pictures remind me of my visit to Jaisalmer esp. Patwa haveli.

    It’s quite funny, but my favourite Indian restaurant in Abu Dhabi (the best Indian food I’ve ever had outside of India!) is called Haveli and I never knew the meaning behind the name (or probably thought about it, if I’m being honest). So weirdly, reading this made me quite hungry! However, this place is really extraordinary. I loved Rajasthan in general when we visited – so many beautiful buildings with fascinating histories – but this is one we didn’t visit. I really don’t know much about the Jains, so I enjoyed learning about the history. The carvings on these buildings are so intricate, why can’t buildings made today be this beautiful?! Although I don’t think I’d enjoy wearing those outfits, they look heavy!

      Hi Dagney, it’s so interesting that reading about havelis (Rajasthani homes) reminds you of Indian food in Abu Dhabi! The brain does some fascinating associations 🙂
      I’m glad you enjoyed reading about Jains and history of the Jaisalmer.
      Architecture and the design focus are so different now.
