At a distance of 4 km from Jaipur Junction Railway Station, The Statue Circle, also known as Sawai Jai Singh Circle, is a historical landmark in Jaipur.

Situated in the middle of a busy intersecting road, Statue Circle is reminiscent of the rich history of Jaipur. It was built as a tribute to Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of the city. The Statue Circle got its name from the majestic statue of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II that it holds. The statue is made of white marble and illustrates the Maharaja holding an astrological diagram depicting Maharaja's love for astrology.

This memorial is beautifully decorated with brilliant lightings and multi-colored fountains which illuminate the place in the evenings.
