On the other hand Jaipur's Mayor is not in the favour of introducing Jaipur Night Market amidst the chaotic and crowded lanes of old city markets. He wants Jaipur Night Market to be set up away from the hustles and bustles of Jaipur's city life. He believes that the night market would be a place for relaxation and some night tourism, more than shopping, so it should be set up in a more peaceful ambience. Jaipur Mayor Ashok Lahoti has also suggested Jal Mahal or the Ram Niwas Garden locations for the same as these locations will also facilitate theme-based arrangements.

Jaipur Night Market to boost Night Tourism

Regardless of the location where it gets introduced, the Jaipur Night Market will definitely give a boost to Jaipur's night tourism.
