  • Amazing place for weekend gateway near Jaipur. Pleasant view and stunning fort view gives you grace. The fort is well managed and very clean. The fort is very beautiful and you will enjoy the facts and history of it. The entry to fort is just 50rs. which is very nominal. You can also enjoy good in clean breeze at the fort.
  • Top most place, breathtaking experience. Natural views are just jaw dropping. City looks like small pieces of grains placed in different color. The pink city looks really pink from the top and this place is nearly killer in terms of views. Got some awesome photograph for myself. Must visit!
  • Good place to visit situated on hills. Well managed n clean fort, we can enjoy the breathtaking view of Jaipur city from fort. The garden inside the fort is very charming. It's great to see Worlds largest cannon and the cannon foundry and other ammunition, this makes us proud. A must visit place.…
  • A great view of Jaipur and must visit place. Old weapons & historical place. Amber & Jaigarh forts are very near to each other at walking distance. There’s good space for parking. One of finest place to visit in Jaipur. Once going to the fort I thought it’ll be boring because of less crowd at entrance, but if you love exploring places and photography, you’ll definitely like the place.
  • A great place for Tourist to see a top view of Jaipur. The architecture of the fort is really amazing, it is used for many film shooting purpose .Take the route of tunnel through the Amber fort when you are going there. It's an awesome walk. Along with the spectacular view of world's biggest cannon you get to see a complete medieval cannon factory.
