Gaitore, the cremation site of the Maharajas of Jaipur, is around 15 km away from the city of Jaipur. Each Maharaja has a chhatri built in his honor. One of the most famous cenotaphs in Gaitore is the chhatri of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II which is known for its white marble decorated with the image of peacocks, delicate carvings and beautiful shapes. Each cenotaph is covered with carvings depicting the tastes of the person it commemorates. The cremation site of the Maharanis of Jaipur is located in the Maharani Ki Chhatri complex, near the Ramgarh road crossing.
