It is a place where early Rajput soldiers prepared themselves agains the enemies and fought them. It is a long way up the hill, however, you can drive your car or take the cab till the top inside the fort.

The fort pales in comparison to the Amer Fort Palace. It is an average fort, with awesome views. It also houses the biggest cannon in India.

Jaiwan cannon is the only highlight of the fort. Rest all is normal like other forts. The surprise was the view of jal Mahal. It is like a dream and unforgettable

Though Jaigarh Fort is not a famous as the other 2 forts in the vicinity, it has its plus points.

Well worth a visit - try to get there as early as possible to avoid the crowds. Giving up on an elephant ride means you can get up later and not wait endlessly in line.
