Gatore ki Chhatriyan

These beautiful umbrella shaped memorials are actual empty tombs or cenotaphs which are dedicated to the Royal Kings of Jaipur. Crafted in exquisite Persian marble, the memorials spot traditional Rajasthani carvings. The monuments have been laid down by the Maharaja Sawai Mansingh – II, and the Museum Trust maintains the place.
