Gatore ki Chhatris (Maharaja)

Gatore ki Chhatri (Maharaja)
Gatore ki Chhatri, Jaipur or Maharajaoen ki Chhatri or Gaitore or Cenotaphs of Kings. It can be called by many names but there is a single fact which remains the same and that is that these “Chhatris” (Cenotaphs) are just Beautiful.
One of the Chhatris at Gatore
Gaitore ki Chhatris, Jaipur. is situated on the Jaipur-Amer road, about 7 kms from Jaipur. Gaitore is a royal cremation site of the majestic rulers of Jaipur. There is a cenotaph for each Maharaja, built in his honor. These royal cenotaphs of the Maharajas are commonly known as "Chhatris". The royal chhatris are engraved with typical Rajasthani carvings. Gatore is regarded to be the mispronounced form of a Hindi phrase "Gaye ka Thor" which means "resting place of the departed souls".
Beautiful Work of Art at Gaitore Cenotaphs.

Although all the Maharajas of Jaipur were cremated here, but Maharaja Sawai Ishwari Singh was an exception to this ritual. He was cremated behind the Chandra Mahal in the City Palace complex, so his cenotaph was built there with the due respect.

The designs carved on each Chhatri represent the taste of the particular Maharaja, in whose honor it was built. This cremation ground of the Kachhawaha rulers of Jaipur stands there, since the time of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur. The Cenotaphs, which were built in the honor of Maharanis of Jaipur, are located in the Maharani Ki Chhatri complex near to Ramgarh road crossing.

Gaitore is a special place with its own charm, displaying the royal past of Jaipur and its imperial rulers. Gaitore Chhatris with its beautiful artistry and majestic history attracts tourists from all over the World.
Macaque Monkeys can come across you at any place anytime in Jaipur.
In Jaipur Monkeys don’t harm you at all, if you don’t do anything Stupid.
I would say that this is one of the Must See Places in Jaipur. . . Highly Recommended. . . .
