Tankshal means a mint facility and this area had the coin mint in historical times, with the residential areas of the workers. The Tankshal Road today is a bustling market and leads to the book market below Fernandes Bridge that was built over a stream that once flowed in this area. Just off the Tankhal Road lies the Tankshal Haveli, also called Tankshal-ni-Haveli.

This haveli was probably built in the 1800s. It was converted into a girl’s school in 1925 but has been derelict for many years.

Tankshal Haveli presents an impressive three-tier façade with exquisite woodcarvings. The ground floor has a plinth with pillars crowned by carved brackets. The first floor has large windows and a profusion of fine carvings, including floral motifs.

The haveli is earmarked for restoration.
