  • The main attraction here is a huge cannon, and also naturally the long outer wall. Worth a visit since its so close to Amber Fort.  more »
  • As for Amber fort - be prepared to walk - it has a lot of history - worth the viewing and did it without a guide. It is sign posted in English with all the events that have occurred from the 17oo's  more »
  • The place is very beautiful as it has a large number of tombs which is the trade mark of the Rajasthani culture and art of living. A very beautiful and a pleasent place for friends, families or anyone...  more »

  • 1)FANTASTIC HISTORICAL PLACE TO VISIT. 2)IT CONSISTS OF ANTIQUE ITEMS AND PRECIOUS THINGS. 3)OLD TYPE OF TOOLS,WEAPONS,BOMBS,DRESSES ARE KEPT HERE. 4)WORLD GREATEST CANNON IS LOCATED HERE AND IS VALUABLE TO SEE. OVERALL ITS A GOOD PLACE TO VISIT IN MONSOON OR WINTER SEASON....IN SUMMERS ITS TOO HOT WEATHER TO VISIT HERE.
  • 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. There is no shed in front of the gate and place is not clean. So people has to stay beneath the sun until getting ticket.
  • I came here from the Amer Palace via the tunnel which connects the two. It's a bit of a steep walk which is good as it keeps the crowds away. Much quieter than the other Palace and more run down. Still the same amount of scammers and touts though. You can wander around freely, it's massive and easy to get lost. There's also some big monkeys sitting around the place.
  • I had a great experience here. it's really one of the best Fort of Jaipur. the view of Jaipur is very beautiful from here really very lovely and treat to watch
