Location : Jaipur, Rajasthan
: The Town Planner Of Jaipur
: Shilpa Shastra
Situated 7 kms. east of Jaipur in a narrow valley, the garden, in memory of Vidyadhar, the architect of the Pink City, is surrounded by high hills. This newly renovated and enthrallingly beautiful place is former vineyard of the royalty. This is a terraced garden with fountains, pool and other features of a formal royal resort.
Vidyadhar Garden has been planned in a medieval style similar to that of Sisodia Garden. In the evening, well-shrouded lights at the base of the surrounding hills outline them against the darkening backdrop.
Vidhyadhar Bhattacharya designed the city of Jaipur using the principles of town planning as laid down in the Shilpa Shastra, an ancient Hindu treatise on architecture. He built the City Palace and the largest stone observatory in the world using the same principles. On the way to Galta, these gardens are laid out in tiers.
These house several galleries, pavilions and exquisite murals depicting scenes from the life of Lord Krishna, which is a visual delight. It's a perfect location for viewing peacocks and monkeys.
