Sisodia Rani Garden, Jaipur Overview

Sisodia Rani Garden is a royal garden built in the premises of the Sisodia Palace in Jaipur. As the name suggests, it was built in 1728 in the honour of the Queen of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II as a summer retreat. The step garden, although not too large in area, is considered to be a tranquil escape in the hot and arid region of Jaipur. The landscaped gardens occupy several cascading levels in front of the Sisodia Palace and have a central water fountain with channels running through. It does not take a lot of time to explore this attraction. So, tourists around Lal Dungri or those on their way to Agra can take a pit stop here. The best time to explore this garden is in the mornings or the evenings as the place is not densely covered with trees and the afternoon heat could become unbearable.

The best part about visiting Sisodia Rani Garden is that it is close to most of the top places to visit in Jaipur such as Moti Dungri Temple, Rusi Rani Village as well as the most famous market to visit in Jaipur - Bapu Bazaar.

Architecture of Sisodia Rani Garden, Jaipur

Sisodia Rani Garden consists of three levels of lush green lawns with a central fountain area. The topmost level is occupied by the Sisodia Palace. The second and the third levels have considerably smaller garden areas running parallel to the palace entrance. The last and the lower-most tier of the step garden is a bigger expanse with a fountain in the centre. Pathways with water channels running in the middle meet the central fountain from each side of the last tier dividing the garden into four equal halves. Each lawn is lined by shrubberies, trees and some portions also have decorative climbers. The middle tiers of the step-garden have pavilions and staircases for people to access the other levels. Sisodia Rani Bagh has designed to compliment the architecture of the palace. The chhatris, the pillars and the courtyards are an amalgamation of Indian and Mughal Architecture. They are adorned with decorative paintings and murals of Lord Krishna and Goddess Radha.
