Gatore ki Chhatriyan, Jaipur Overview

Slightly outside of Jaipur, Gatore ki Chhatriyan is the crematorium grounds for the Kachwahas, a Rajput dynasty. It is set in a tranquil location and consists of a number of beautiful cenotaphs which mark the official cremation spots of the former rulers. The location was designed by Maharaja Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur.

The Gatore compound is characterised predominantly by Vedic architecture with Indo-Persian structural and arcuate building influences. It is on the north side that the crematoriums are located, and they slope southwards. Scattered all around the compound, the cenotaphs appear like beautiful towers as well as shrunken open-air palaces. Their architecture is admirable for each cenotaph is topped off by an umbrella-shaped dome or a chhatri and it is interesting to note that some are made of marble while others of sandstone. Many cenotaphs feature intricate carvings related to nature, battles as well as elephants.
