  • Our Experience is very good here. very beautiful views of Jaipur we can find from Fort.but avoid in summer seasons 
  • Worth a visit ... for the kids to look back into history and see the fort with the display of weapons and the largest cannon. The view of jaipur from the fort is mermerizing. 
  • This place has some great views of the surrounding area. It is a bit of fun drive on a very narrow road. 
  • I had a chance to visit the Fort in 1983 on the first day it was thrown open to public for first time. Cannon foundry and Jaiwan cannon are main attractions. There is an amazing system of water storage in Fort fully covered under a roof. Sharing a picture of wonderful Jaiwan cannon of 1983
  • From this fort you can see the beautiful view of amer fort and jal mahal
  • This palace is old canon factory of Jaipur's maharajas so you can see all type of canon here and main attraction of this place is world's largest canon on wheels named 'Jaiwan'. And you can see the good view of jalmahal.
  • Amazing experience. Very spacious inside. Must have a tourist guide to fully enjoy and understand the grandeur of the place. Highly recommended for especially those having taste buds for historical places!!! Recommended!!!
  • This one is the world famous fort in India. You can see worlds biggest canon here. You can combined your visit with amber and nahargarh fort and it'll take 5-6 hours to visit the fort.
