   Mandawa havelis

 

India

Mandawa is a municipality in Rajasthan, which is often referred to as an open-air museum or an open art gallery, as the town is literally dotted with lavishly painted havelis, traditional private mansions in the Islamic architectural style.

 

Here, the havelis are in particular renowned for their decorative frescos, with images that depict stories from popular history and folklore, as well as scenes from religion.
