Mandawa, a once prosperous city, saw its rich Jain merchants gradually leave the city because of the severe decline of the construction of the port of Bombay gradually taking precedence over the caravans that once made the glory of Mandawa. The havelis remained in the hands of the inhabitants of the village.

 

about the place, Mandawa:

The small town of Mandawa in Rajasthan which has less than 30,000 inhabitants is famous for its havelis. The havelis are the richly decorated homes of the merchants who prospered before the Silk Road was abandoned by the caravans.
