•Patwan Ki Haveli, which is the largest and most elaborate Haveli in Jaisalmer, with five storeys extensively carved and divided into six apartments, some of them housing craft shops for visitors to make their collections.

•Nathmal Ji Ki Haveli, built in the 19th century, with such a symmetrical shapes, although two brothers had independently constructed the Haveli from two opposite ends

•Salim Singh Ki Haveli, which was built before 300 years and having a beautifully arched roof with superb carved brackets resembling Peacocks.

There are many other events that would delight a Jaisalmer traveler, such as visiting Jaisalmer Sand Dunes, enjoying a camel ride and excursions around the Havelies.

The Jaisalmer tourism packages are , however combined with other important destinations so that the Jaisalmer travel will be an interesting holiday package, for instance the Palace on Wheels sponsored by Indian Railways conducts such a beautiful tour, which includes Jaisalmer.
