Nahargarh and Jaigarh forts

31st December 2013

Out of three forts in Jaipur city, tourists mainly visit Amber fort. The nearby Nahargarh and Jaigarh fort attracts less number of travelers. One reason is that many travel companies plan for a single day in Jaipur which is extremely hard to achieve if these two forts are included in the itinerary.

Madhavendra Palace in Nahargarh fort
The fort has some excellent views of Jaipur.



The main attraction of Nahargarh is Madhavendra Palace. A small Palace has some nicely designed rooms and halls.




The fort is situated at the edge of Aravali hills and one can see beautiful views of the surrounding hills.

Jaigarh fort is few km away from Nahargarh. It is known for two main reasons. It houses the world’s largest cannon on the wheel.


The huge underground water tank is another wonder. People believed that it contained hidden treasures prompting even Indian Government to order a search!! Nothing was found though.



Amber, Nahargarh and Jaigarh fort are located near to each other and one can easily visit all three together.

Your post took me down the memory lane. I and my wife visited Jaipur during December last year, and we had visited these forts early morning. Oh boy, what a view it was from atop these forts!
