Royal Gaitor Tumbas, Jaipur

4.3
Admire the white marble of Royal Gaitor Tumbas, a resting place for the kings of Jaipur. The complex abounds with intricate carvings and fantasy-like domes, blending with the rocky, arid nature in the most impressive way. Don't miss Jai Singh’s II impressive marble cenotaph, with a dome supported by twenty ornate pillars. The enchanting atmosphere and absence of tourist crowds make the complex ideal for appreciating the architecture in peace, or simply relaxing in tranquil surroundings.

  • This temple is well kept and stunning. It is only 30INR pp and therefore well worth the visit. At the far end of the site there are lots of monkeys. There is a man who gave us biscuits to feed them wh...  more »

  • Really impressive construction. Highly recommend a visit. Beautiful and peaceful. Nearly placed between two small mountains. Don't be lazy, take the wall stairs to the top. View is well worth it.
  • This is the best place in Jaipur, period. After our driver Sameer Khan recommend me about this place I was not sure and I said skip it, but fortunately I said let's go have a look, then we were at the best spot of the day. No people, full score beauty, perfect for photoshoot

  • GAITORE (MEMORIALS OF KINGS) Just off the Jaipur-Amber road is Gaitore, where the former Maharajas of Jaipur are entombed. The chhatris (cenotaphs), made of white marble display the distinctive Rajput style of architecture. The open pavilions with ornate domes are supported by delicately sculpted pillars. The crematorium is located in the middle of yellow sandstone hills. The décor and extravagance of a particular chattri is meant to reflect the stature and prowess of the ruler it contains. The most graceful and beautiful chattri at Gaitor is that of Maharaja Jai Singh with 20 carved pillars. Tourists are especially drawn towards it because of its intricate carvings.
  • Beautiful palace .... If u come gad ganesh ... Come here also.

Where to stay in Jaipur

With a big selection of budget and mid-range hotels, Jaipur serves as an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Many taxi and rickshaw drivers aggressively push their choice of hotels on unwitting tourists--if you refuse their suggestions, they might double the fare. To avoid this inconvenience, book your room ahead and call the hotel to arrange for a pickup--many offer shuttle services to and from the train and bus station.
