Jaipur is one of the most famous cities of India that attracts a huge number of tourists every year, domestic as well as International. The magnificent forts, palaces and the rich heritage culture is pretty well known and popular among the visitors, but there are also lot of places that are not highly promoted but are definitely worth a visit. One such place is Jamwa Ramgarh or The Ramgarh Dam.
Situated almost 28 kms away from the city of Jaipur, hardly an hour’s drive, it can be reached via local transport as well as your personal vehicle. Once famous for its artificial lake, it still attracts a number of people to visit it daily in spite of the lake now being dry. And if the weather is rainy, this place turns into a fair with locals flocking it for fun, goth (a local term for a picnic where food is cooked at the picnic spot), enjoying corn, swings etc.
The place comes alive. After you look at it, one can imagine the beauty of this place when it was full of water. It was once the main source of water supply to the city of Jaipur.
There is a very famous Jamwa Mata Temple near by and this place is also got its name as Jamwa Ramgarh by the name of Goddess Jamwai.
SOME POINTS TO KEEP IN MIND
- The place has a lot of monkeys, so you need to be careful about them.
- Avoid wearing heels as the place is not suitable for them.
- You won’t find a washroom nearby, so need to take care of that as well.
Rest, nothing much to worry about, visit and enjoy the scenic beauty of this amazing place. It makes you forget that you are in the Desert State of India. 🙂
