  • This is a huge gun, you can see it's a monster. This is the only thing which is of attraction in Jaigarh fort.  more »
  • Hard to miss this. It's on every list. It's an amazing piece and you're way up the mountain so the view is fine. They let my tuk tuk drive right up to it. It's not a long visit but you won't see a bet...  more »
  • Jaivava is believed to be the world's biggest cannon ever built, currently located at Jaigarh fort in Jaipur. It is believed to have been fired only once in the year 1720  more »

  • 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.
  • Glad that such a long cannon built in those days has been maintained well. Claimed to be the largest cannon built. Must visit.
  • Good fort but nothing much to see except the cannon
  • This fort has the Asia's largest Canon. Very true to reflect the history of Jaivana(Jaibaan) and Jaipur. Fort is not properly maintained but visiting it doesn't take much(time, money etc.). Must to visit place for History lovers.
  • This biggest hand made cannon in India is an excellent example of Indian technological advancement at the time of Kings an Queens. This fear only of this weapon kept invaders away from Jaipur for a very long time. I jewel in tourist map of the city.

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.
