There are several distinctive lush green gardens in the city. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II planned the city, and he stressed on maintaining gardens in the city. Most of the gardens were dedicated to the queens like the famous Sisodia Rani ka Bagh. This beautiful garden was constructed for the second wife of Jai Singh II. The garden is decorated with abundant trees, fountains, and beautifully painted pavilions. This is the largest garden amongst all, and is situated at a distance of about 6 km. It was constructed in 19th century.


An alluring garden was formed in the memories of Vidhyadar Bhattacharya, the architect of this beautiful city. The garden was planned following the architectural techniques of Vidhyadar. This is the only planned garden of the city, which is still the way it was, in that era. The garden is enhanced by fountains, flowerbeds and several galleries, pavilions, frescos depicting Lord Krishna and shady trees. The charm increases as more visits are registered by peacocks and monkeys. The view during the sunset is awesome in the garden. It is situated about 6 km from the city centre, on the way to Galta on Agra road. This garden was once the vineyard belonging to the regality.


Ram Niwas Bagh is situated near to the city centre. It was built in 1868 A.D by Sawai Ram Singh II, for the purpose of drought relief and as per the records it took four lakhs to create this historical garden. The garden is one of the main attractions of the city as it contains several monuments like, the Zoo, the Albert Hall, the Museum, the Zoological Park, sports complex, etc. The Zoological Park is also renowned for crocodile breeding. Albert Hall is a museum and it holds a collection of about 19000 objects. The Zoo is a home for varied varieties of birds and animals, and is renowned for its collection of 71 varieties of fauna. Ravindra Manch is an additional attraction that includes an open-air theatre and a modern art gallery to promote cultural events.

There is a divine garden in Jaipur namely Kanak Vrindavan located at a distance of about 8 km from city centre. This garden has many temples, beautiful fountains, waterfall, ponds, and flowerbeds.
