Vidyadhar Garden

Sightseeing in Jaipur - Rajasthan , the Pink City is a real treat for those interested in the history and heritage of India. India's first planned city, Jaipur was the capital of Raja Sawai Jai Singh and designed by Vidyadhar Bhattacharya. To pay a tribute to the architect's genius Vidhyadhar Garden was built in his honor. Strategically located 260 km from the Indian capital of New Delhi and 240 km from Agra it is the center of the golden tourism triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.

Developed on the decrees of the ancient Shilpa Shastra there is no dearth of places to sightsee in Jaipur. Shrouded in history and folklore, the magnum opus of Jaipur rests not only in its magnificent palaces, forts and monuments but also in its idyllic green paradise of parks and sanctuaries.

One of Jaipur's most eminent gardens is the Vidhyadhar Garden near Sisodia that is an amalgam of contemporary Indian and Mughal architecture. This garden was built to commemorate the services of the legendary Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, the mastermind behind the Pink City's exquisite splendor. The garden is truly imperial with its wonderfully sculpted fountains, sylvan lakes, galleries and vibrant pavilions adorned with murals depicting Lord Krishna. The rambling expanse of the garden, beautifully landscaped and tended also houses a picturesque vineyard.

Vidhyadhar Garden, one of Jaipur's best-preserved gardens is aesthetically highly appealing. Nestled on the lap of a panoramic valley, the garden offers some mind-blowing sights. The blazing gold-amber sunsets that transforms the sky to a greenish hue while the solitary pools glitter like a jewel in a brass setting under the twinkling lights mesmerizes tourists.

Another beautiful vista is that of the torrential downpours when the nimbus clouds unfold the rich blue sky under which mischievous monkeys frolic and India's pride, the elegant peacock spreads outs its dazzling feathers to welcome the rains.

Vidhyadhar Garden a natural treasure trove is a must see destination for tourists sightseeing in Jaipur.
