Ram Niwas Bagh was built by Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh in the 19th century. From that time, the exotic garden had been subjected to numerous new introductions, adding to its elegance and charm. The luscious green parks, majestic structures held the park together firmly. But with time, it started losing its charm when people began interfering with maintaining the cleanliness and harmony of the Bagh.
Under the smart city project, an old garden of Ram Niwas Bagh was renovated by the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) which is named as Sawan Bhado Park. It was inaugurated by the Chief Minister on 25th June, 2016. Located near Albert Hall Museum, the garden has been creatively crafted, and has several attractions.
