  • One amazing canon! Do take a guide here. It's ₹200 for 4ppl and the guide actually explains you everything. The importance. The weight. The dimensions. The range and more. The canon is beautiful. The fort is splendid. All travellers must visit this place. If you liked this review please give a thumbs-up below! 👇
  • Beautiful historical monument surrounded by high hills and the famous large cannon is also present here called Jaivan Cannon. Good photogenic place as surrounding is high in elevation to observe distant places. limited car parking facilities.
  • Jaivana canon is located at Jaigarh Fort, Rajasthan. It was manufactured at 1720. Then it was the largest canon on wheels in the world. It was manufactured in the foundry at Jaigarh Fort. It was never used in any battle. It was only once fired with 100 kg of gunpowder & the shell covered a distance of approx 35 km.
  • Jaivana (जय बाँण) cannon is truly huge which is known as the biggest cannon in the world with a range of around 40 kilometres, it is said to be used once only till its placement here which caused a huge backfire burning everyone around it. It on the highest ground of the fort with awe-inspiring views all over. With a beautiful all over view of jal palace(जल महल).
  • Located next to the Amber Fort, this well-preserved military fort was built in the 18th century and housed the royal treasury. Its highlight is the Jai Vana, one of the the world's largest cannon on wheels. Made around 1720, it has an impressive firing range of around 30km. The fort also houses an armoury and museum, which display weapons, old photographs and maps, and royal objects. Since the fort is located on a hillock called Cheel ka Teela (hill of eagles), it is an ideal vantage point to take in stunning sights of the Amber Fort and the Maota Lake. Climb up the Diwa Burg watchtower for a bird’s eye view of the sprawling plains around.
