Kanak Brindavan Garden

Kanak Brindavan Garden is one of the oldest gardens in India and famous for the spectacular view it offers to visitors. They provide a welcome break from the dreary and stressful city life.


Kanak Brindavan Garden is located eight kilometers to the north of Jaipur, one of the most beautiful cities of Rajasthan and indeed in the whole of India. The city has many iconic structures to its credit but the Kanak Brindavan Garden stands out because of its strikingly beautiful appearance. It stands out in complete contrast to the barren desert of other parts of Rajasthan.


The history of Kanak Brindavan Garden dates back to 280 years when it was built by Kachchwaha Rajput Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh of Jaipur. The garden has a striking resemblance to the place where Lord Krishna performed Rasa Leela with his consort Radha. This garden is compared to the valley of Brindavan and that’s the reason why the Maharaja sanctified an idol of Lord Krishna in a temple in the Kanak Brindavan. It is called the Shri Govind Deoji Parisar. The beauty of the garden gets magnified many times over by the presence of the temple, stunningly-designed water fountains and elaborate marble stone decorations.

The Kanak Brindavan Garden is believed by Hindus to be one of the sacred spots in Rajasthan as waters from several important rivers were brought here to carry out the holy Ashwamedh Yagna.


Kanak Brindavan Garden is a place of unparalleled natural beauty and that’s why it is a favorite destination of tourists from all over Indian and abroad. Detailed planning and execution is obvious from the various features of the garden. Situated right in the valley of the Nahargarh knolls, the garden is famous for its dense green surroundings, well-maintained green lawns and fountains. There is a clear touch of local flavor as well in the detailed ‘chhatris’ or umbrellas and the exquisite mirror work on the temple walls of the Govind Deoji shrine.

The central garden is demarcated into eight divisions. One of the key attractions of the Kanak Brindavan Garden is the Parikrama fountain which is made of marble. The Garbha Griha positioned within the temple complex looks strikingly beautiful because of the fantastic panni work.

Visitors can have a visual feast as the garden reveals the mesmerizing sight of famous landmarks nearby such as the Amber Fort, Nahargarh Fort, Jaigarh and the Dharbawati River. The garden can be seen in dance sequences of several Bollywood movies. Visitors can also see the picturesque Jal Mahal amid the sparkling waterfalls and pink lotus buds that decorate the lakes around the garden in a charming way of its own.
