Gaitor is about 15 Kms. from Jaipur and is famous for the cenotaphs or chhatris of Jaipur rulers, with the exception of Sawai Ishwari Singh’s. The cenotaph of Sawai jai Singh ii stands out for its delicate carvings and beautiful shape. The cenotaphs of all Jaipur rulers, with the exception of Sawai Ishwari Singh who was cremated outside the Jai Niwas Garden were built at this place. All the chattris are covered with bas-relief depicting the tastes of the person it commemorates. There are memorials to the queens in the Maharani-ki-Chhatri complex near the Ramgarh road crossing. The white marble cenotaph of Maharajah Jai Singh II is the most impressive which is decorated with carved peacocks.
