Jaipur Sightseeing Tour at Patrika Gate
Often referred to as “India’s most colorful gate”, Patrika Gate welcomes both passing cars and passers-by from Jawahar Circle in Jaipur. Built in 2016, the gate contains a colorful cacophony of hues depicting the history of Jaipur, India’s famous Pink City.
Considered by locals to be Asia’s largest circular park developed on a highway roundabout, Jawahar Circle is located near Sanganer Airport. Developed by the Jaipur Development Authority, the park covers a circumference of 4,658 feet (1,420 m) and includes walkways, a fountain, rose gardens in addition to its imposing gate.
Through its vibrant hand paintings, Patrika Gate gives visitors a glimpse into the culture of Rajasthan, the northern Indian state where Jaipur is the capital. Along its columns and pillars, depictions of temples, forts, palaces and rulers of Jaipur are offered to give insight into the history of the city. Scenes of weddings, wars and everyday life are depicted.
Beautiful Architectural Legacy
The gates of Jaipur are an architectural tradition. When Maharajah Sawai Jai Singh II founded Jaipur in 1727, he built a wall around the city with eight gates in the four directions. Centuries later, Patrika Gate perpetuates the architectural legacy and is sometimes presented as the city’s ninth gate. The number nine plays a prominent role in the design – there are nine pavilions in total, each measuring 9 feet wide.
Not just a symbolic structure, Patrika Gate has also become a popular stage for relaxation and photo ops. A slightly different shade of pink than Jaipur’s traditional terracotta pink, Patrika Gate offers the city a place to honor its past while thriving in the modern era.
