Have you been to the Jawahar Circle Garden Lately?
No, no. What I mean to ask is, have you been to the Jawahar Circle Garden between 7pm & 7.30pm lately? If you have not then it is time you went?
That is when the Musical Fountain Show is performed!
If you are going to say that you have seen musical fountains,before. Then you would be wrong! Because you have not seen musical fountains like this before. Not in Jaipur, anyway.
JDA has spent 170 lacs for the development of this circle. The money has been judiciously spent on a Jogging tracks, Walk way, Parking,Landscaping, Benches & a Musical Fountain.
The Fountain has been installed in a water-body in the center of the park. Every evening at 7 pm a show is held for 30 minutes, when the water sprays dance to the music & are illuminated by colored lights all adding up to a rare experience. Taking a hint from the Si-Fi world they even show music video’s on a wall of spray. And after the show you can have some chaat or Saras Lassi or Custard Kulfi in the Chaat Bazaar.
Radius of the water body is 47 mts. There are 290 effects. Height of the fountain is 25 mts. Water screen size is 27mts wide by 9 mts height. There are 316 colored lights. The video projector is 15000 lumens.
A fact worth appreciating here is that Rajasthan is a desert state & to maintain such big gardens & fountains with drinking water would be foolhardy so the government is using re-cycled water which though safe for the garden & the fountain is definitely not safe for drinking or for bathing with. So it is a good idea to stay away from the water in the fountain.
