Mangaldas ni Haveli I, once a quaint abode to a Nagar-Brahmin family, is located in the center of the historic UNESCO declared World Heritage City of Ahmedabad. This beautiful building was acquired by the Mangaldas family in 2006 and has since been restored, only after retaining its original charm. The entire building is like a fine wood sculpture. Estimated to be over 250 years old, this Haveli is laden with architectural motifs, intricately carved pillars, facades and quaint balconies overlooking a central courtyard. The Haveli also has an integrated rain harvesting system with underground water storage tanks, known as ‘tankas’. Located at a distance of a 12-minute ride from The House of MG, the ride is a treat to your eyes as the rickshaw meanders through ‘pols’ (narrow bylanes) and bustling bazaars of the old city.
