A small distance towards the west from the minaret is Tripolia Gate, a gate with three arches from which the bazar got its name. This is the main entrance to the City Palace and Jantar Mantar, but only the Maharaja's family is permitted entrance via its portals. The public entrance is via Atishpol or Stable Gate, to the left. You can visit the City Palace complex, the Jantar Mantar and to the north of the City Palace is the Govindji Temple which has gardens around it. An image of Lord Govinda was installed here by Jai Singh as a patron deity of his family. Come out of the complex through the Jalebi Chowk and Sireh Deori Gate. The your right is the Hawa Mahal.
