Sisodia Rani Ka Bagh, Jaipur

Located 6 miles east of Jaipur is Sisodia Rani Ka Bagh, a little palace lad out in formal terraced gardens with fountains. It bears the name of the clan of a princess from Udaipur who was married to Raja Sawai Jai Singh II. It was merely a political marriage between the two antagonistic states, one of the terms of which was that the son born of this union would succeed to the Jaipur throne. But tired of the constant intrigue against her at Jaipur’s City Palace and fearful for the life of her son, the unhappy princess came here to live under its domed and canopied roof. The upper story of the palace has some charming murals of hunting scenes, polo matches, mythical beasts and episodes from the life of Lord Krishna and his beloved Radha.
