India’s rich cultural heritage is evident in the many structures that have been built over the centuries. While many of these notable buildings have become heritage sites, many historic private homes, known as havelis, are still standing unused in cities across the country.

Havelis are traditional townhouses or mansions that are characterized by their intricate architecture and spacious interiors. The name “haveli” comes from the Arabic word “hawali,” which means “partition” or “private space.”

In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in haveli properties among well-heeled buyers. These buyers are drawn to the opportunity to own a remarkable piece of history. As India rapidly embraces the tech-driven world of modern conveniences, many people are also drawn to the simpler and more dignified times that havelis represent.
