  • If you are in Nahargarh try to get in there before sun set. Sun set here is awesome . From the fort it gives you bird eye view of jaipur city. A must visit place during your trip to jaipur.  more »

  • Very beautiful place, fort with a single palace for all queens of erstwhile king of Amer. It has separate apartment for each queen except 2 queens who were real sisters, and were given a attached/merged apartment. Many more interesting stories related to king and queens, how he use to manage so many queens together. How he use to spend night with one and rest of the queens were left to guess whom he was with last night. One sud visit it and hear all tales from a local guide and ask him as many question as you can, every question will give you interesting facts and stories.
  • Easy hike up. Unless you're starting from the other side of town, don't let a rickshaw driver tell you the hike is so difficult that you'll need to drive up. It takes about 20 minutes depending on your place to get up from the South road. Beautiful views from the top over the city
  • I love to see sunsets, specially in India. I didn't no about that Nahargarh is a sunset point and when i visited first time i just wondered to see the huge area of Nahargarh fort and the sunset is really amazing and calm. A lot of people come to see the sunset. There's no need to buy tickets to see the sunsets, many places are outside from the fort where you can see sunset for free. Just go and enjoy sunset!!
  • After enjoying the spectacular view of the Pink City Jaipur from the fort, I forgot the tiredness of climbing uphill. Cool breeze flows here all the time and you will be fascinated to see the fort how the Maharaja's built the fort in the difficult terrain. Suggestion to improve the place and tourist experience would be to built a broad road to the fort, as the current one is quite congested. But above all, the view from the fort is breathtaking !!!!
  • The fort is located at a comfortable, scenic distance from the city of Jaipur. It's easy to find and is a must-visit. Lovely view of Jaipur from the top and the architecture and paintings housed here are intricate and beautiful. A guide is recommended as there are no plaques of information here.
