The royal Amer fort was my next destination, I set foot towards was the Kanak Vrindavan gardens that lie on the way to the Amer palace. This exotic tourist attraction is a perfect site to relax and spend quality time with family. The beautiful garden is located at the foot of the Nahargarh hills of Rajasthan. This popular tourist attraction is surrounded by various other spots of tourism importance including the Amer palace and the Jaigarh fort. The garden is enveloped with blankets of lush green vegetation that relaxes the senses and offers an escape from the grey city life.
The complex is believed to be built long back in history. It is named after the Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh of Jaipur under whom it was built around 280 years ago. This picturesque garden is termed as Vrindavan due to its resemblance to the place where according to mythology Lord Krishna resided. The garden resembles the description of the mythological Vridavan valley and the King also sanctified an idol of Lord Krishna in the premises of this garden. The special complex where the idol of the god is placed is called as Shri Govind Deoji complex.
The beautiful gardens and pious temple incorporated in the Kanak Vrindavan gardens give a very soulful and soothing touch to the environs. The delicate and minute marble workmanship depicted in the embellishments of this garden are eye catching. The whole garden is maintained by the Government of Rajasthan and steps are being taken to promote tourism at this site. This garden is a must visit in Rajasthan for those who love nature and have a quest to explore the rich historic heritage of the nation.
I took a lot of pictures and just sat and relaxed in the beauty of the scenic surroundings of the garden. The lush greenery of the premises is a perfect place to unburden the mind from the hectic urban life. Tourists visit the Kanak Vrindavan garden in search of peace and I could notice mostly families with their children having a gala time at this mesmerizing site.
