  • This huge mountain fort, sit atop the more refined Amber fort and this fort is rougher, bigger and to a large degree more impressive. Need to access it through a winding path, and be ready to walk  more »

  • Jaigarh Ft is amongst popular traveler locations in Jaipur, the Pink City. Famous for its historic relevance, this ft has a lot of points to use you. It is likewise a hillside leading ft as well as there are 2 methods to go into in it. You could individually go into in the ft or you could get in the ft by means of Brownish-yellow Ft. There is a passage which leads straight to the ft which lies in Brownish-yellow Ft. The passage which is completely covered, after some range opens from leading as well as looks a lot more like a hallway. You could appreciate breath-taking sight of Jaipur city from this location. Excellent historic royal residence. Extremely massive. The most effective water harvesting and also water monitoring system one could see here.that must consisted of as a task research study in our colleges. Canon shop is impressive. Administration needs to offer little even more info concerning functioning of factory.
  • This is place is simply wonderful located near Amer palace in Jaipur. Here is one of the largest canon of India which can throw almost 30-40 km away. Its is very Huge. This is quite a famous place in Jaipur and one of the must visit while here. It is located on the hill top and you might need to hire a taxi/auto-rickshaw to reach this place. The scenic beauty is great here. Enjoy !!!!!
  • I just loved the place. The thing which attracted my attention was the live puppet show which was very interesting and the second thing was the Asia's largest cannon. It was just incredible. It is a place to plan a one day picnic with your family. It is good to bring young kids and let them see what our heritage culture was?

  • This fort is much simpler than Amber. You can visit using the ticket from the City palace, if you still have it. I advise you to accept a guide - there are persons at the entrance just waiting for tourists - because inside there are no explanations. I accepted an old guy who knew very little English but who explained in general terms how things were. I paid him very little, so you don't have to worry about money. There are few people climbing up. Walk + visit last about 1 hr.
