After Osram, installed lighting at the famous Golden Temple in Jaipur, India, Osram Lighting Solutions brought a lighting concept it developed to emphasize the extraordinary architecture of the historic center of Jaipur and revive its cultural monuments at night. The capital of the state of Rajasthan in India with three million inhabitants is full of monuments and landmarks related to the royal family that once ruled the region. Jaipur is also known as the “pink city” due to the pink facades of its buildings.
Osram Lighting Solutions used about 6,600 LED luminaires, including linear light systems such as the Traxon Nano Linear Allegro and floodlights for planar lighting such as the Traxon Washer Allegro to illuminate the city castle and surrounding avenues and add even more appeal to the historic city center.
“We have constructed something that didn’t previously exist. The new lighting bathes the old city center in a particular splendor,” stated Viswanathan Ashok, Head of Sales at Osram Lighting Solutions India.
In a 5.7 km long section of the city, which is home to 425 monuments, 30 different types of luminaires with 15 different beam angle variants and eight different color temperatures were installed to showcase the ornate facades. The lighting sources are not readily apparent in the scheme, ensuring that visitors see the historic architecture. In this way, the new lighting concept in Jaipur unites cultural and heritage sites with state-of-the-art technologies.
