Jawahar Circle is claimed by Locals to be the biggest circular park in Asia developed on a highway traffic circle. It is situated along Malviya Nagar near Sanganer Airport on Jawaharlal Nehru Marg. (though the same claim of being the largest circle in asia, is also claimed by Swaraj Road, Thrissur in Kerala ignoring the fact that the largest Traffic Circle or Round about in the world with a diameter of more than 3.5km is situated in PutraJaya Malaysia.)

The diameter of the circle is 452 m and the circumference measures 1420 m. This park was fully developed by JDA (Jaipur Development Authority), and is one of Jaipur's favorite leisure places. There are multiple concentric tracks in the park. It is surrounded by Rose Gardens.

A number of attractive features like musical fountains, modern play equipments, jogging tracks are being added to it.[1]
