More than five centuries ago, the grandson of Maharaja Udaikaran of Amer, Rao Shekhaji, founded the sub-clan popularly known as shekhawat. Alsisar haveli is owned by this branch of the Kachawa clan of Rajputs. The descendants of the family have restructured and refurbished their old mansion (Haveli) into a modern day heritage hotel to give the guest a feel of Raj days.
Alsisar Haveli lies tucked away in the heart of pink city, Jaipur. It brings back to life the grandeur of the old days and is a memorable regal Rajasthani experience for the guests.
Built in 1982, the Haveli incorporates the finesse of traditional Rajput architecture and a site to behold. The large elevated platform that dominates the central area of the ground floor and once used for get-togethers by the gents of the house is now open to guests who can witness puppet shows and folk dances while enjoying their snacks or drinks. The spacious lobby which opens into the chowk (inner courtyard), was a century ago used by the ladies of the house and is now open to guests for a tete-a-tete.
The rooms are very much like the ones that were used by Thakurs of Alsisar. Antique furniture and mediaeval Rajasthani style-fabrics charmingly enhance the Rajasthani experience. An assortment of 36 air-conditioned rooms which have individual temperature controls and attached tub-baths with running hot and cold water round the clock.
