Sisodia Rani ka Bagh

February 7, 2014 Comments Off
Sisodia Rani ka Bagh

This terraced garden was laid out in the 18th century for Sawai Jai Singh Ifs second wife, a Sisodia princess from Udaipur. The marriage was one of convenience to foster better relations between the two powerful princely states, and one of the conditions was that the new queen’s son would succeed to the Jaipur throne. To escape the ensuing and inevitable palace intrigues, the queen decided to shift to a more private home outside the walled city.

Her little double-storeyed palace is surrounded by beautiful gardens artfully planted with fragrant bushes of jasmine, where peacocks dance amid the spray of fountains and gurgling water channels. The interiors are decorated with lively murals depicting episodes from Krishna’s life, hunting scenes and polo matches, mythical beasts and heroic events. Not surprisingly, this enchanting place has become a popular location for Indian films.

ENVIRONS: Opposite Sisodia Rani ka Bagh is Vidyadhar ka Bagh, a small and once beautiful 18th-century garden dedicated to the courtier traditionally credited with designing Jaipur.
