History of Ram Niwas Bagh Jaipur

The eclectic garden was built in 1868 during the reign of Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh. Colonel Sir Swinton Jacob was appointed to design it. The landscaped garden is located right in front of the Albert Hall Museum which was built according to the Indo-Saracenic architecture.
