Rajasthan capital and India's celebrated Pink City, Jaipur abounds in its glorious past, martial history, legendary folklore, architectural landmarks and natural beauty. Jaipur's vibrant vista is enhanced by the captivating charm of its magnificent gardens like the Kanak Vrindavan Garden.

Kanak Vrindavan Garden is nestled in the jungle-clad foothills of the Nahagarh Hills in the idyllic green oasis of Kanak Valley, a former elephant path fringed by the Aravalli Range. The sanctity and quietude of the Kanak Valley is illuminated by the historical references, which attribute the valley to be the sacred site for the performance of the Aswamedha Yagna.

Kanak Vrindavan Garden was christened by Raja Sawai Jai Singh, the versatile founder of Jaipur who was mesmerized by the garden's breathtaking beauty and found it similar to Lord Krishna's venerable sanctum at Vrindavan. The garden is a popular tourist spot for pilgrims during Rajasthan's celebrated Teej and Gangaur festivals. The celestial beauty of Kanak Vrindavan Garden is enhanced by the faint enchanting strains of hymns from the nearby shrines of Govind Deoji and Natawarji.

The garden, marked by beautifully tended landscaped lawns and replete with pretty fountains, sparkling and tranquil lakes, colorful is one of Jaipur's most popular picnic spots and site for film shootings. Kanak Vrindavan Garden sprawls across a massive expanse and houses an ornate beige stone temple with imposing marble columns and intricate lattice windows.

The garden offers a bird's eye view of the nearby picturesque Jal Mahal and the majestic trio of Nahargarh Fort, Jaigarh Fort and Amber Fort. The ripples of the cascading waterfalls, the sylvan lakes dotted with pink lotus buds and fringed by the Dhok and Kadamba groves have a magical charm. The pristine beauty of the wilderness is a ornithologist's dream since the garden houses a variegated range of migratory birds like kingfisher, spotted dove and Neel Kanth.

A trip to Jaipur remains incomplete without a visit to the historically significant Kanak Vrindavan Garden abounding in its panoramic rhapsodies.
