This manja was brought from Pathankot, Punjab. It was kept in the courtyard of the haveli. Originally, the webbing of this manja was woven using leather ropes which were replaced with cotton straps around ten years ago. A pillow was kept on one of the ends while sleeping and the webbing was covered with a bedsheet.
