This is a detail of an haveli in Mandawa, a town situated in the Shekhawati region, in Rajasthan.
Mandawa was included in the old caravan route from China to the Middle East, this way attracting many traders. The fort and a large number of havelis (private mansions decorated with magnificent frescoes, which are common in this region))are still there today, as a testimony of the importance of the town during that period.
Taken early in the morning.

A fantastic shot of the windows with wood carvings and frescoes ! Great light management with wonderful sharpness and details.
A little bit nostalgic for me........, as my early childhood was spent in this region of Rajasthan. These frescoes..., these old windows..., the streets..all are a part of my life. So many memories...! Thanks for this photo!
Best regards and wishes,

A nice view of this magnificent haveli. The light is realy beautiful and gives to the wall and the wood extra colors. I like the framing and the sharpness and how we can see all the details. We have seen also splendid haveli in Jaisalmer.

Splendid image, a beautiful haveli tighly cropped and great framing. Excellent intricate details and great sharpness with strong repeated lines, curves and patterns and perfectly balanced image. Excellent exposure with good clarity, awesome colors hues, contrast and the shadows increases the depth Well done, Congrats

Maravilloso este plano cerrado sobre la riqueza arquitectonica de los "haveli", ideales tanto las pinturas, como la delicada talla de la madera.
Buena imagen con optima nitidez y buena luz.

I haven't been to Shakhawati region, but am aware of the wonderful havelis there. The view is fine here, with the richness of the artistic work, both in relief & artwork well depicted here. Fine warm colours in good light!
