Sisodia Rani Garden and Palace is a palace garden 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) from Jaipur city in of Rajasthan state in India. It was built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II in 1779. The place consists of tiered multi-level gardens with fountains, watercourses and painted pavilions. A double storeyed palace occupies the top terrace of the garden. The palace has many galleries, pavilions and beautiful murals depicting scenes from the life of lord Krishna. The palace lies on JAipur Agara highway.

The palace garden derives its name, Sisodia Rani Garden and Palace, from the rani (queen) for whom it was built. She hailed from the Sisodia line of Suryavanshi (Sun-Dynasty) Rajputs, who ruled and now nominally rule the region of Mewar in Rajasthan.

The palace was featured in the 1991 Indian film "[Lamhe]", as the home of actor [Anil Kapoor]'s character Viren. [Rambagh Palace], near Jaipur, also served the same function. The film's song "Mohe Chedo Naa", pictured on actress [Sridevi]'s character Pallavi, was filmed at the palace as well.
