About
The Royal Gaitor Tumbas is exactly as it sounds- a tomb for many maharajas. Some of the maharajas include Pratap Singh, Madho Singh II, and Jai Singh II. The site is situated beneath the Nahargarh Fort nestled in a cove between several desert foothills and truthfully, it feels neglected and undiscovered. After pulling up to

Beautiful tombs; when we bought a ticket the guy at the counter claimed he had no return money, but wrote an IOU with a lower amount; after finishing looking at the buildings we claimed our money back; after making a small scene we got everything back; also one of the employees there offered himself unwantedly as a guide, although it looked like he was in function; not ver uplifting behavior of both men

The Royal Gaitor Tumbas (also known as Gaitor Ki Chhatriyan in Hindi) is exactly as it sounds - a tomb for many maharajas and definitely one of the best places to visit in Jaipur. We’re just somewhat surprised this isn’t in the top five things to see in Jaipur.

It’s situated beneath the Nahargarh Fort nestled among the narrow side streets, away from the chaos that exists in Jaipur so it’s a relief when we step inside and find serenity and some beautiful architecture. We arrived around 10am, spent about 40 minutes and pretty much had the place to ourselves - just a couple of tourists arriving as we left.

It houses several tombs and mausoleums of the entire Kacchhawa dynasty that ruled over Jaipur from 1727 AD to 1947 AD. The place has been well maintained, is clean and deserves the reputation of being one of the most beautifully constructed and maintained royal cenotaphs in Rajasthan.

As you walk towards what you believe is the back, keep going and wander off to the right as there is another section to see.

We had a guide with us this day, which we were grateful for. On the day/time that we arrived, there were no ‘guides’ offering their services. That said, if you do some online research, you can find enough information.

Highly recommended.

We were on a Tuk Tuk day trip and we were taken here by surprise as our driver had said he wanted us to see his favourite place that was off the tourist trail.
Was quiet here and lovely carved buildings/tombes.
The driver was only allowed so far with us and then there was a royal guard who spoke okay English who has to take you around the tombes further back into the site. He asks for a small tip, but this is expected and he served it. He was a lovely friendly smiley chap who wasn't really easy to understand, but he had enough English words to allow you to understand what he was roughly talking about.

This tour of Gaitor was very disappointing becauseof its extremely poor maintenance.Once again like all of the famous sightseeing spots in Jaipur,this place suffers from extremely poor maintenance,otherwise it would have been interesting to visit this place if it had been restored and maintained in its original state . It's not worth visiting!

Very beautiful memorial cenotaphs in a quiet setting. If you come, hire your driver to wait as it is a bit off the tourist trail. Spend .5 or 1 hour.

As others have noted, this is a lovely and quiet spot in Jaipur. It's a bit off the tourist track. Even our tour guide hadn't been there before. The architecture is beautiful with stunning sculptures.

The Royal Gaitor Tumbas are beautifully serene, set in a quiet locale, far from the bustling crowds. They were so quiet and bereft of people, that I felt a bit scared because we were two women, with a child, wandering through the Tumbas. The buildings are so beautiful, that one forgets that these were the places where the royals of Jaipur were cremated. The tombs marking the death of children was quite poignant. One can hear the calls of peacocks from the surrounding hills and see the walls of the fort.

It is well worth a visit, but I recommend going with a tour operator, rather than on your own. There is an entry fee, but you don't get any ticket- so you know who is pocketing the money! Also there is Shiv temple inside, and we were asked to visit by an old person, who was also shooing away donkeys that had strayed inside. We didn't and given the interest of this person and a younger one in us (probably for tips or donations), we chose not to go deeper into the Gaitor Tumbas either.But still, I regard it as an enriching visit.

Extremely eerie how this area is so tranquil, to a point I actually hearing birds chirping in India for the first time. Standing in the garden area feeling the warm breeze while listening to the amazing sounds of all different kinds of wildlife was so peaceful.
I came here to show respect to Maharaja Jai Singh  and Gayatri Devi.

This was a little gem, having come down from the Nahagarh Fort right above we were looking for something to while away 30 mins before lunch and took a punt on this as recommended by the guide books. It was really lovely, the cremation pavilions are beautifully carved and the whole site was clean and tidy and virtually empty. Entrance fee was about 20pence
