The Gaitore are cenotaphs, or empty crypts. Since it is Hindu custom to cremate the dead, these buildings stand as a monument to the departed, rather than a grave marker.

This red palatial compound is as old as the city itself, and was the seat of power for the king of Jaipur up until 1949, when Jaipur joined the union of India. Within can be found a museum to Jaipur’s last maharaja and it still houses the Jaipur royal family.
