This is the outer entrance to the haveli, decorated with the usual scenes from the life of the Lord Krishna. There is a Lord Ganesh at the centre above the lintel in the hopes he will bring good fortune. Portraits of males in formal attire, complete with swords, adorn the sides of the entrance. Reds and blues and greens are everywhere, with the occasional black and yellow.

I have a question here (since you know a lot about haveli architecture): Are the scalloped archways we see here a feature of Mughal architecture, or Rajput design? Or is it some interesting syncretic blend of both that appears ever so often in North India?
Thanks indeed. You have a great gallery of North Indian architecture pictures!
