History of Ram Niwas Garden Jaipur

Located bang opposite Albert Hall Museum, the Ram Niwas Garden was built by Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II in 1868. Built basically as a famine relief project, the landscaped garden was designed by Colonel Sir Swinton Jacob. Spread across an area of over 30 acres, the garden was initially built on 76 acres of land. The addition of modern and increased facilities for visitors resulted in reducing down the garden area to a little over 30 acres.

At the time when it was built, the number of hours and timings of entry to the garden was divided exclusively between the general public and royalty including British families. The garden was opened for common people during the day and evenings were meant for British families as well as royalty. It was mostly the families of British officers, where the guests, high society club members, nobles and extended families were entertained.

The sight during evenings was something at the time wherein the street outside the garden used to be washed in dim street lights and lined by horse carriages. There were swing sets for children too, who could have their share of playtime.
