Mandore Gardens

Interesting
This beautiful park laid out on the site of the old capital of the Rathor kings was the site of royal cremations right up until the late 19C. It's a pity that the lawns are littered with plastic, as the pink sandstone buildings are really worth a visit. The cenotaphs have two distinct architectural styles - the traditional chhatri (domed pavilion) and the deval, in the form of a temple. The deval of Ajit Singh (1724-50) is the most spectacular of the monuments.
