This paata is placed outside a haveli in the Sunaro ki Guwad. It was commissioned in the memory of the haveli’s owner. An inscription embossed on a metal plate on the paata translates to “In the memory of Late Shri Jaganathji Sunar, by his wife in the month of Jyestha Sud and year 2059 of the Hindu calendar”.
