Jaipur was planned by a Bengali architect Vidhyadhar Chakravorty, who divided the city into 9 blocks and laid wide straight streets. The city was surrounded by a formidable wall. This planning pattern can still be seen in Jaipur while exploring the interior of the city. Chowkri (block) Sarhad was once a palace dotted with temples, gardens and other royal buildings, while Purani Basti was reserved for the residence of courtiers. Businessmen and officials received the Chowkri Modikhana Vishveshwar Ji, and Ghat Darwaza was occupied by merchants and artists. In the same way, all 9 blocks were assigned for different purposes.
