    It was raining lightly when we arrived and the weather was just awesome to watch from the hill. So I recommend to only go there when weather is good. Also if you are a student do take student I-D as entry fee are lot less. Do hire a guide (must) otherwise its just a walk around. He will take you through the life's of king and his 9 queens, like how they planned their castles.

    Amer fort of Jaigarh is popular for locals along with the foreigners. You will find greenery everywhere and a large canon which is a must visit in Rajasthan The ticket counter system is to be improved. More counter should be opened to avoid the long queue of people.students should take their student id it can give them concession on the ticket

    A historic place, a palace far from the Jaipur main town, holds the history of Jaipur. A beautiful palace now converted to museum previously used as a court. A palace and the whole area adjacent is very beautiful. Specially the stares will amuse you.

    Wonderful experience at the Jaigarh fort. The scenery, palace, location everything is just awesome. It makes me proud of the ancient Indian civilization and their works. This is a must visit place.

Where to stay in Jaipur

With a big selection of budget and mid-range hotels, Jaipur serves as an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Many taxi and rickshaw drivers aggressively push their choice of hotels on unwitting tourists--if you refuse their suggestions, they might double the fare. To avoid this inconvenience, book your room ahead and call the hotel to arrange for a pickup--many offer shuttle services to and from the train and bus station.
