Jaipur: The food lovers will have a new destination in Jaipur to satisfy their taste buds. The Rajasthan Housing Board will introduce the first Chaupati of Jaipur in Pratap Nagar area. The work will begin from Wednesday. Officials said that the foundation stone will be laid by UDH minister Shanti Dhariwal. The work will likely be completed by August, 2020.
The Chaupati will come up over an area of 3780 square meters and will house 28 food shops and restaurants. The most popular food brands and venders from all over the state will be allotted shops in the chaupati, according to Rajasthan Housing Board commissioner Pawan Arora.
The project cost is estimated to nearly Rs 420 crore.
“The chaupati will have a seating capacity of over 200 people. The visitors will enjoy all modern facilities including high-tech parking, pure drinking water and washrooms. We believe that Pratap Nagar is the perfect place for the chaupati as it is the education hub of the city. More education projects are on the cards, so the chaupati will become popular among student community,” said a senior housing board official.
The housing board is introducing the chaupati on the lines of Masala Chowk located at Ramniwas Bagh which has become a popular hangout place for food lovers.
