The flamboyant and lush green landscape of Vidyadhar Garden, located in Ghat ki Guni in Jaipur, is marked by unique architecture, that is a blend of Mughal and Hindu designs. Constructed in 1988, this garden honours the memory of Vidyadhar Bhattacharya- the chief architect to Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh. Let's take a mind-soothing virtual walk along this garden's pristine lakes and charming flower beds, which has now become a popular picnic spot in today's time!
Unparalleled aesthetic appeal
The elaborate pavilions, courtyards and galleries, that make up the campus of Vidyadhar Bagh, are believed to be based on the premises of the ancient Shilpa Shastra. Besides the fountains and flower beds, the motif adorned walls and pillars depicting the life and times of Lord Krishna, magnify the visual charm of this place. Further, the intricate mirror work, latticework and carvings have an unparalleled aesthetic appeal.
Vidyadhar Garden has also opened its gates for night tourism as its premises look ethereal, especially on full moon nights! The interiors of the magnificent stepwell, situated at the lower end of the garden, are also lit up with colourful lights. However, it is the sight of the light fountain that majorly attracts tourists to this destination.
Know before you go!
Vidyadhar Bagh is situated on the Jaipur-Agra Highway, roughly around 15 km from the hustle-bustle of the Pink City. Connectivity to this beautiful venue is quite smooth as regular buses ply on the route and alternatively, you can also go on a road trip with your bunch in your personal vehicle.
If you want the best views when in Jaipur, then put your mask on and make your way to Vidyadhar Garden, to enjoy the amber-lit sky as the sun begins to set. Also, don't forget to carry your travelogue and camera, to note all these moments, which are to be relieved later!
