Haveli Alsisar, Rajasthan

Fresco Haveli

PROPERTY NOT REOPENED AS YET

I read about Alsisar 3-4 years ago in some travel magazine. The story of Frescos and Havelis felt like a fairlytale land of the Bygone era. I was transported mentally to Alsisar with that article and it felt so beautiful. Since then I was eager to make a trip to Alsisar happen.

Not many people know about Alsisar, which is a great thing for Travellers like me. If you want to take a walk around the village, casually chat up with the locals like the tailor or the village postman at the quaint Post office while passing by and soak in the pace of an era 200 years ago.

The Fresco Haveli at Alsisar seems like the perfect base to explore the Land of Havelis. It meets my criteria of “If I get Kidnapped and I open my eyes”, can I make a close enough guess of whether I am in a land of Royals or in a city where my happening evening would be a discotheque and not a village walk.

Highlights are the Frescos made out of stone color which have a life of 100s of years which we can see in the ‘Haveli’ and the sparkling white walls which look so radiant and peaceful. The pool right in the middle of the Haveli is one of its kind.

Rooms have frescos, colored glass panes, tea coffee maker, Chandeliers, four poster beds, tastefully done.

Antique heavy metal gates, beautiful royal arches and a swimming pool right in the middle to be able to appreciate all the beauty around while taking a swim.

Not to miss are the Puppet show by the Father son duo, Father with the puppets and son on the harmonium, and the beautiful ethnic dance performance by Chagan Singhji and his troupe.

They were just so adorable and still untouched by the fast paced materialistic life which has lost all innocence.

YuYIII Highlight

The ancient art of Fresco making

Did we happen to tell you yet that Alsisar is a village of Frescos? Every home, every haveli in Alsisar is replete with paintings that have remained intact for centuries. To give these paintings immortality, if we can call it so, artisans have been using, from time unknown, a very special ingredient – stone colors!

Yuyiii FRIEND

Don't miss to talk to Jai!

Jai Singh carries with him an essence of the Rajasthani traditions. He has a moustache longer than two feet in length sitting in a coil over his kind face, and dons the iconic Rajasthani dress – Dhoti, Kurta and Pagri (Indian Turban). A tour of the village where he narrates the enchanting stories of its Havelis while you admire their historical architecture will surely be a unique experience.

Expert review by Rachita Saxena

Experience at the property
Loved the place here, especially the swimming pool which was clean and amazing. Dived right into it after reaching this place.
Highlight of the property
That definitely has to be the swimming pool. Its gorgeous with the White Corridors all around it
Things that can be improved
The lights were too dim, the A.C wasn’t cooling properly in our room and the sockets were too far from the bed. Management readily took our feedback and would assured that it will be fixed for the room where we stayed
Tip
Wake up before sunrise, the sunrise view is magnificent and a never miss. No atms near 10 Kms Mobile network coverage available only for Airtel and Jio.
Suitable for
Go by road to enjoy the breathtaking views of Aravallis. As it is Rajasthan, you may avoid going in extreme summer months.Rare Property which is suitable for a group of friends for masti, couples for some romantic time, solo travellers, even families with kids because there is enough open space for them to run around and be free. Strongly recommended to those to want some peace and quiet.
