A Closer Look at What Stands Behind the Circles in Jaipur

The roads take us from one place to another and those same roads connect us to certain famous circles of Jaipur. Have you ever wondered what treasures of past they hold within themselves.

Let us understand what these circles reflect:

Statue Circle – Reminiscent of the rich history of Jaipur and also located in the heart of the city, the Statue Circle was built to pay tribute to Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II who is the founder of the city. The statue is built in white marble facing Pink City. The king was fond of Astrology and hence statue circle illustrates the king holding an astrological diagram. When the fountains and lights illuminates the whole place, the beauty in itself gets personified.

The circle looks even more spectacular with all the plants that surround it and when it is illuminated at night with lights with all the vehicles passing by, the statue looks glorious.
