Jaigarh Fort is situated on a hill overlooking the Amber Fort and a lake. It was built in the early eighteenth century by Jai Singh II to protect the Amber Fort/Palace from intruders or other attacking forces, hence its name. It is said that the two forts were connected by subterranean passages providing an escape route for the royal family... More

The main place to see if the cannon - which is said to be largest in the world. You can also have a long walk around the walls - which show you a good view of the surroundings.

Jaigarh Fort was basically built as a residence for the Soldiers of the King. It is rustic looking and easily visible from the Amber/Amer palace. In fact a secret tunnel like way is built in the Amber palace which connects to the Jaigarh fort. As the story goes during the enemy attack Mansingh had escaped from this hide-out to the... More

We visited this fort thinking in terms of architecture it would not be too exciting. Which was true but the location, high on top of a mountain overlooking Jaipur and particularly the Amber Fort, made it a truly wonderful visit. The fort is very spread out and our driver drove us in and around it. As an elderly couple we... More

Jaigarh fort is the one used by the kings during war time. There is a temple Sitla Mata mandit inside Amer fort and close at 12 and reopen at 4 pm so must visit there.

The fort is just about average and there are better places to visit in Jaipur. Despite that Jaigarh offers something that is unique and noteworthy - a tunnel to Amer fort. The majority will walk/drive up to Amer amid the hordes of people. But I recommend that you take another route. Take your taxi/car/auto directly to Jaigarh and leave it... More

Must visit to know the importance of history, the huge cannon is once in a life time experience. Our history is untold unless we visit these places and appreciate.

Went to see the fort. It was tiring the fort being situated at such a great height. But yes the history was interesting.
