Jawahar Kala Kendra

One of the most prominent post-independence buildings in Jaipur, Jawahar Kala Kendra or ‘JKK’, was inaugurated in 1993 as a multi-arts and cultural center. The building was designed by legendary architect Charles Correa and takes influences from the Vastu Vidya inspired plan of the Pink City mixed with modern designs. Located on the Jawaharlal Nehru Marg, JKK contains an open amphitheatre, several closed theatres, a state of the art auditorium with projector, a cafeteria, library and several art exhibition rooms. The annual theatre festival held here every summer and the several exhibitions and fairs held here between October and January, make this place essential for the populace of Jaipur. Regular theatrical performances and skits are also organised during the weekends, which make it a definitive place to visit in Jaipur.
