Perched on the edge of one of the oldest plateau mountains the world, Nahargarh Fort remains best known for its unrivalled panoramic views of the city of Jaipur. Built in 1734 as part of the city's defense fortifications, the structure features extending walls reaching across the rolling landscape and connecting it to another fortress. A steep 2 km (1.2 mi) winding path leads you to spectacular views of Jaipur, considered particularly stunning at sunset. A restaurant at the top of the fort allows visitors to soak in the view with a drink in hand.

  • Its a fort located near Jaipur, can go by any cab (transportation is not a problem) It is the place you have seen in many Bollywood movies, fun to be with, the place have a aura of its own. 
  • Just loved roaming around the fort and the big battle gun placed on top of the fort. It is slightly off the route of city tour but worth the visit. You may even drive up till there in your car, very r...  more »

  • It's ok ok because of long walking distance But the JAIPUR WAX MUSEUM is absolutely amazing and a palce to see in nahargarh fort
  • The third and final fort of the trio, this is one of the few commercialised places of Jaipur. There are cafés, restaurants etc on the fort grounds. However, the view is the best thing about this place. You can see all of Jaipur. Amazing place if you love heritage.
  • Visiting this place since childhood & still nothing has changed except the view beneath which is expanding in terms of concrete. With effort from Govt of Rajasthan, the rich old heritage property is being maintained quite well with some improvements still required in this regard esp monitoring the tourists as they tend to make the fort & premises dirt. Still, the fort is worth visiting if one wants to relax away from crowded life.
  • The view of the city Jaipur from Nahargarh Fort, built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur is impressive.
  • Not so majestic as Jaigarh fort but offers a brilliant view of the city, you can take a telescopic view of Jantar Mantar, City Palace and the park from the terrace. Intricate wall paintings inside the fort is beautiful. Celebrity wax museum and a food court are coming up that'd add to the attraction. Do not miss the royal dining experience at fine dine restaurant situated in the palace (Once upon a time) if you can spend some extra bucks. Meal for two would cost between 2k and 4k rupees. You can even instead relish a refreshing mocktail (Rs.500 for two) and spend an hour enjoying the city view. If you got your own transport do not take the closest route Google map suggests from the city (even if you're on motorbike). That's too narrow, unpaved, slopy terrain with just one feet parapet wall and quite a few hairpin bends. Locals zoom past up and down in bike making you wonder if you're the only one to be scared of heights. Teenagers and college goers (all boys) sit and smoke pot enroute, what the heck!?
