Jaipur, India - July 10, 2009

Gatore Ki Chhatriyan
The entrance sign reads: “Maharaja Sawai Mansingh – II, Museum Trust, Gaitore Ki Chhatriyan.” Gatore Ki Chhatriyan was a royal crematorium site for Jaipur's magnificent rulers. A cenotaph was constructed in recognition of each of the more famous maharajas cremated there. The royal cenotaph is known as “Chhatris” (umbrella-shaped memorial).  The cenotaphs are engraved with magnificent Rajasthani cravings. The Gaitore provides a peaceful and soothing ambiance to visitors, as it is well kept secret from the masses of tourists. It seemed that this place is best known only among public vehicle drivers. It is one of the most beautiful monuments in Jaipur. I am thankful to Shailendra Sharma at Explore India Holidays Pvt. (Golden Triangle Tour India) for having my driver Mohd. Irfan show me this Gatore.
