Established in the year 1993, Jawahar Kala Kendra is the cultural hub of the city of Jaipur. It was set up with a purpose to preserve the rich arts and crafts of the state of Rajasthan and designed by architect and urban planner Charles Correa. This arts centre has been dedicated to and named after the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru. The Kendra has been designed as a modern interpretation of Maharaja Jai Singh's nine mandalas. There are three underlying ideas in its construction and the first is the pursuit of the mathematics of the cosmos i.e. the navagraha that formed the basis of the nine sectors in the Pink City and the nine squares at the Kendra. The second is the rethinking typology by crafts experiments. The third is the ways of bringing the public back in urban spaces.
