WHAT IS INDIAN HAVELI?
The Haveli of Rajasthan,Gujrat and Punjab are excellent examples of regional character and traditions. The term itself is often translated to mean ‘mansion’, and indeed Haveli architecture is described as an elaborate domestic architecture rather than one developed for monuments.
In ancient times and even up to the 19th century Haveli was a place in the vicinity of the fort where the royal families and selected ministers got together in a congenial environment. There they discussed plans about the current and future state of affairs of the kingdom while enjoying sumptuous dishes made by adept cooks, who were selectively picked from every part of the empire.So Haveli played an important role as status symbols, so size and richness of decoration were highly valued.
