Three kilometres from Jaipur on the Agra Road, set in a picturesque valley amidst the Aravalis, you will find an impressive conglomeration of terraced gardens, temples, havelis and garden havelis. This is the historic complex of Ghat Ki Guni with its 52 unique properties.
Since the tenth century, Ghat Ki Guni served as a gateway to the Dhoondhar Kingdom of the Kachchawaha Rajputs. During the time Akbar visited the Amber state on his way from his capital Agra to Ajmer, it was a mere cobblestone street. It evolved into an impressive complex displaying the grandeur of the Amber state to the Mughal Emperor. When Jaipur was founded in 1727, Ghat ki Guni rose in prominence as a series of pleasure gardens with the addition of many palaces, gardens and havelis.
