At a distance of 9 km from Jaipur Junction Railway Station, Maharani Ki Chhatri Complex is situated on the Amber Road just before the Ramgarh road crossing close to the Jal Mahal in Jaipur.

Maharani ki Chhatri is basically a funeral area for the Royal ladies or Maharanis of Jaipur. It is famous for its magnificent cenotaphs which were built in the memory of various ladies of the Royal families. These beautiful and grand cenotaphs are the symbol of the status and importance of women in the royal family.

These cenotaphs are artistically carved with beautiful royal chhatris. Each Chhatri is very beautifully carved and it clearly reflects the taste of the women in whose memory it has been constructed. Some of them are built with marble whereas some used local stone. Some of the Cenotaphs were unfinished here. The reason being that if the queen died before her king, only then her Cenotaph will be completed with the roof structure. But in opposite case, her Cenotaph will remain unfinished.

Timing: 9.30 AM to 4.30 PM.
