Nestled in the centre of Jaipur’s old Rajput capital of Amber, Surya Haveli
lies below the
striking honey coloured walls of the magnificent 16 th century Amber Fort. Steeped in history,
the haveli’s 300-year-old records have been lost in the mists of time. However, historians,
experts and locals say that the haveli, similar to others in area, was most likely the grand
mansion of a minister of Maharaja Man Singh I, one of the kings who built Amber Fort.
