Seeing a green patch in the midst of barren dry land, one cannot help but be surprised at the contrast and this is exactly how one feels as one looks at the Sisodia Rani ka Bagh in Jaipur.
The Sisodia Rani ka Bagh was built for Sawai Jai Singh's wife, Sisodia Queen who was from Udaipur. The garden is located on the Jaipur-Agra Road and is about 10 kms from Jaipur.
The Garden is laid out in the Mughal style and is a tiered multi-level garden, which has fountains, water channels and many painted pavilions.
The garden was the perfect place for the queen to enjoy the beautiful landscape, cool breeze and fresh air. Many say, the garden was built as a cure to the Queen's homesickness but some insist the Queen found the gardens to be the perfect place to escape Court intrigues. Regardless of the reason for its construction, one cannot deny the beauty and charm of this magnificent garden.

And of course, it has green grass, and various kinds of plants including many flowering and fragrant shrubs.
