  • In the old days this was the size of a large cannon that saw anti-aircraft guns from the army column going much more significantly. As you can see watching the Castle.

  • The Jaivana cannon is the largest wheeled cannon ever constructed. It is located at the Jaigarh Fort, Jaipur. It was cast in 1720, during the reign of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II of Jaipur. The formidable strength of its builder, the scientifically inclined warrior Sawai Jai Singh II, lay in the large number of artillery and copious supply of munitions which he maintained. Jaivan rests on a high 4 wheeled carriage. The front wheels are 2.74 m in diameter and the rear wheels are 1.37 m in diameter. The length of the barrel of the cannon is 20 feet 2 inches and it weighs 50 tons.
  • This place was not well maintained few years back but now it's a completely different story. Apart from the occasional wrappers here and there, you won't find any major issues with cleanliness. The Canon has a rich history on how it was used. If you are looking forward to write your lovers name on some fort wall, there is no space left. Better luck at some other fort.
  • One of the biggest canon. Only used once it throw its 100 kg weight spherical ball at a distance of 22 mile (aprox 35 km) and never used again. From here you can see great view of Jal Mahal and lake.
  • It's a historical place . We can see largest cannon in this place. From there we can see entire Jaipur. Old cannon factory is there. Please visit this place with children they can get good knowledge about history of this 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.
