4.1
#3 of 14 in Museums in Jaipur
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.

    Nothing much to see in this fort. But well known for its top city view. View from this fort is great. Pond in this fort is another point for photography. There is wax museum inside the fort .  more »

    You can park your car inside the fort, do not park in parking, go inside the fort which will reduce your 2kms excessive walk. Save it to roam the fort.  more »

    Nice place to visit in Jaipur. The place is very well preserved and I think if not been evacuated the king can still live inside. There is a food plaza inside and a restaurant which is run by Hyatt wh...  more »

    If you are in the city of Jaipur, and looking for ultimate leisure and contentment, just reach out to this place. Even at the soaring temperatures of the day, you can just sit at the restaurant on the extreme end, which offers a glimpse of the entire city. It's no less than a treat to work away with your exhaustive days, where you can chill with a bottle of beer, or repeatedly ask for the tasty Chai they offer (although you have to convince them a little for the service). You can even have food ordered, if time is not a constraint to the day long plan of your tour. Coming to the fort, inscriptions, stairs and its built, obviously it is majestic. The Royal look is very obvious with interiors of the Fort, it's boundary wall, and the terrace, over which you can find ample of reasons linger or click pictures. For photo enthusiasts, it's one good opportunity to explore the abundance of sights, spots and bring extra edge to their creativity. Rest, you can enjoy this place, even in solitude, if you happen to be a solo traveller in the city.

    New wax museum is more attractive , great architecture , View of city from top of fort is eye-catching . Facilities and services are good. Easy to reach and bike riding on roads is awesome . Best place to hangout with friends . If u are a photo genic than this place is best for u. Best example of Indian art and designs.

    Not great. Nice view of the city. You can walk down later on to Jaipur and catch a bus back to the hotel otherwise don't pay more than 50 rupees back to the main road. Very little information is provided about this place upon purchase of a ticket.

    Want to see an eye opening view of Jaipur? Head here at unusual times! A wonderful Sunset. Beautiful Night View. A must go if you are a wanderer. The curvy road is a road you gotta ride once.

    AWESOME, PEACEFUL, SPECIALLY FOR ARTISTS First of all, Entry charges are 10 Rs. For two wheeler, 50 for Car and 200 for commercial vehicle. 50 Rupees entry free Kila (Which includes only roaming around) You can see whole jaipur city from here. Huge place to spend your day with your family, friend, partner or with yourself. If you are a tourist, You shouldn't miss that place for sure. I recommend Two wheeler to reach that destination because you will see beautiful way and sights like any hill station area. If you hate heat of the Summers than go in rainy days, you will never forget your experience.

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.
