This traffic roundabout in Jaipur sports a huge statue of Sawai Jai Singh, who is credited with the founding of modern day Jaipur. This imposing statue of the Statue Circle is shown holding a staff and a collection of astrological diagrams.
The Statue Circle has been constructed to commemorate the memory of one of the most far sighted rulers of Jaipur. Sawai Jai Singh was not only a great ruler, but he also was a great builder, and a futurist. The famed Statue Circle is now a favourite ‘hanging-out’ hub for the young and old of Jaipur.
You can savour the sweet and spicy delicacies of Rajasthan, in the evening at the Statue Circle, as a host of hawkers and road side food vendors will cater to all your gastronomical needs. In the evenings the Statue Circle truly becomes a delightful picnic spot in the midst of the colourful lighting and lovely fountains.
