Photograph of Baldeo Singh's chhatri, Govardhan, taken by Samuel Bourne in the 1860s. Baldeo Singh (r.1823-1825) was the 9th Maharaja of Bharatpur, the capital of the Jat state. His chhatri or cenotaph is one of four memorial shrines to the Maharajas of Bharatpur at Gobardhan, a site of Hindu pilgrimage. The chhatri is built of sandstone and is situated at the western end of a formal garden or char bagh adjacent to a tank or reservoir.
