Sisodiya Rani

Remembered as a grand and romantic gesture of Maharaja Sawai jai singh, sisodiya rani ka bagh was infact a gift for his ‘majhili rani’ who despite being the middle one ruled as the ‘Patrani- the chief queen’.

This patrani was none other than the princess of Udaipur, her highness Queen Ranawat who later came to be known as sisodiya rani owing to her royal blood line and hence the royal palatial garden often giving a striking resemblance to the noorjahan’s beloved charbagh style was christened sisodiya rani ka bagh.

The gift was intended to make the princess feel at home as she came from Udaipur which in itself is a mesmerising and pleasant city. The city of Jaipur whenever fell short on lakes and ponds it made up for that by resplendence. Her son Sawai madho rao eventually turned out to be the successor and was also quite sensitive towards the upkeep of a bagh exclusively built for his mother.
