Diwan-e-Am Travel

An eighteenth century monument, Diwan-e-Am is built by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh. This is popularly called as the Diwan Khana or the Hall of Public Audience. It was the place where the king used to hear and decide the grievances of his people. Characteristic features of this hall are the Durbars, Jalis and banquets. Jalis are that portion of the hall from where the royal ladies clad in Purdah watched the proceedings in the Durbar.

Diwan-e-Am has been functioning as a museum for a long and it displays carriages and howdahs for elephant and camelback rides, portraits of the royal family of Jaipur, carpets from the royal household. Among the marvels of this exquisite hall, chandeliers adorn the prime position. It is considered as the largest one in India. Indian and Persian miniature paintings embellish the picture gallery along with the wide compilation of manuscripts. Renowned for the beautifully ornamented flowery ceilings, this hall might have witnessed so many glorious moments of Rajput administration.
