The Rajputs were a very chivalrous race. Women were held in great esteem in their society. This is evident from the existence of the Maharani Ki Chhatri which was a special funeral area for all the royal ladies of Jaipur.
This royal crematorium has several exquisitely carved cenotaphs which are all in memory these imperial ladies. The cenotaphs are either built with marble or with the local stones that were available in Jaipur.It should be kept in mind that the Maharani ki Chhatri is open on all days except Holi.One should not miss out on these grand umbrellas situated on the Amber road just before the Ramgarh road crossing.
