Gaitore or Gaya Ka Thor (meaning, the last abode of departed souls) is the crematory of the Kachhwaha Rajput dynasty of Jaipur. The premises houses about a dozen cenotaphs of which seven are large in size. The first of these cenotaphs was that of Sawai Maharaja Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur and the latest is that of Sawai Raja Man Singh, the father of Maharaja Bhawani Singh, the last king of Jaipur. These cenotaphs present not just an important part of history, but also an excellent example of Rajput architect and craftsmanship.
What really pinches a tourist is that there is absolutely no information about these cenotaphs. One would not even know which belongs to who. Thus to have a guide is a must. Had there been information plates about the kings and their period, the tourists would have felt value for money since it is a ticketed monument.

Last April I was in Jaipur with my friends and we visited Amber fort and Gaitor ki Chhatriyan or we say the Royol Gaitor exactly is a Royal family cenotaph and it is outside of Jaipur. and when you go for Amber fort that time you can visit this beautiful monument all stone nice carve work. we all recommend to visit this place and it is best to visit morning or late afternoon. there is no doubt Amber Fort is amazing but we also love to visit this Royal place. when you enter this complex you can see first the memory of Sawai Man Singh II ( Mor Mukut Singh; August 21, 1912–June 24, 1970 ) was the last ruling Maharaja of Jaipur State belonging to Kachwaha clan of Rajputs. and in side all royal family as well.

we like this place and recommend to all who want go to Jaipur.

Nice piece of architecture. When we where here there where absolute no tourist. You got a nice view over jaipur from the top of the temprl in the second courtyard. We did it without a guide and had no troubles. The main reason to visit must be the architecture and the silence of this place.

Visited in Aug 2013, on our way back from Amer fort. We spent about an hour. This is the royal crematorium site for Jaipur's royal family. A cenotaph was constructed in recognition of each of the more famous maharajas cremated there. The royal cenotaph is known as “Chhatris” (umbrella-shaped memorial). The cenotaphs are engraved with magnificent Rajasthani cravings.

The road to Gaitore is not too bad. Again no signs, so be prepared to stop and ask. Not many tourists at all. the day we went the only guide was on leave, so we really missed out on learning more. But the place itself is quiet and serene. no facilities, carry your own water as well. It is one of the most beautiful monuments in Jaipur.

If you are on the way to see the Amber Fort, make sure you make a stop at Gatore Ki Chhatriyan. Cenotaphs are just amazing. It's well worth a visit and it takes only about 45 min to go around the place. I would recommend this before many of the more popular and overpriced attractions in Jaipur. You can hire a guide at the entrance.

I don’t understand how this isn’t rated much higher on trip advisor? I visited the other sites recommended but this was one of the best places by far.

When you visit here, it’s incredibly quiet and hardly any tourists - it’s nestled away from the crazy traffic so you truly feel like you’re in a little Indian paradise.

We spent an hour just wondering around the buildings and sitting there in peace watching the birds fly overheard. I felt like I could easily sit there all day and stare at the incredible buildings.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to get away from the busy tourist areas and just wanting to appreciate the beautiful Mughal architecture.

This place a hidden gem, I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Jaipur .
The place is a few minutes drive away from the Jal Mahal, the entry fees is just Rs 20 with no camera fees. This place is every photographers paradise . All the sculptures are so beautiful you fell like you are visiting a mini Taj Mahal. Even the maintenance of the place is just top notch, the grass well trimmed and the sculptures are regularly scrubbed clean of dirt. Its an awesome place for a pre or post wedding shoot.
The best part is that its not crowded at all like the other forts and palaces in Rajasthan.

This is duplicate entry for another attraction under name "Roayal Gaitore Tumbas" and is a place where Kings of Royal family of Jaipur were cremated. There is a separate place for cremation of maharanis (Queens). This place is on foothills of Aravalli. Special structures have been erected in their honour. Although tombs are characteristic of mughal or islamic architecture but in case of Rajput rulers chhatris are made. Chhatris are somewhat open structure where a canopy is supported on several pillars. Canopy is not a 'tomb like' or circular dome in chhatris but has geometrically shaped or has ribbed circular structure.

Here, at Gaitore, there are 2 clusters of Cenotaphs. The back cluster (Northern) or the one away from entrance has more intricately carved pillars and panels. The rulers of Jaipur were devotees of Lord Krushna so the inner walls of canopy depict various scenes from life of Krushna such as Kalia mardan (killing of giant serpent), holding of goverdhan parvat, maha-Ras. Apart from that mythological scenes such as churning of ocean (samudra manthan) have also been carved here. Some of the marble carvings of these cenotaphs match Delwara or Ranakpur carvings in their finesse.
You need to pass through narrow roads and crowded city to reach this place. However, once you reach here you will find that this place does not attract much crowd and is calm and desolate. There is an entrance fee of Rs 20 for Indian citizens. Parking is free. I could see no toilets inside the monument. There are some shops near parking where you can get tea, cold drinks, biscuits etc but no restaurant is there. The starting point for uphill climb for Garh Ganesh Temple is near parking. On your way to Garh Ganesh you can get bird's eye view of cenotaphs which appear like a miniature model from above.

Gaitore ki Chhatri is not a very famous place for tourists who visit Jaipur. It has a beautiful Rajputana/Mughal architecture and it used to serve as the crematory of Kachhwaha dynasty. However, no guides are available who can tell us about the history associated with the place. One is left to admire the beauty of the architecture and peaceful surroundings. It can be developed into a major tourist spot if managed properly.
