The view is amazing. The fort stands tall on a hill. The fort is huge and quite a walk if you want to cover everything. Visit in winter season is recommended. Apart from the canon The view is killer.

I liked the big canon kept in this fort and the view of the plains from the fort. The museum there had a nice collection of photographs of the royal family. The armoury was not that impressive. You could also watch puppet show in the inner part of the palace. There are battery operated cars in the palace.

Was blown away by the sight of the world's largest cannon which is housed here! The figures make for some interesting reading. That you can drive through the fort and park at various points to then get off and explore is a great feature. The museum was very informative and pleasant on the eye. They had a restaurant on the...

What a place, couldn't believe we were at 1000 years old fort. The technology was so advanced and the people then were so concerned about environment. E.G. Rain water harvesting is just one to name. Not to forget worlds biggest canon on wheels can be seen here.

Not our first time, but this fort has its glory. Good Views, a lot of walking, ofcourse the Biggest Cannon in the world. A single connecting road takes one to Jaigarh, Nahargarh and the Amer Fort. This is the real fort experience, then the more decorative City palace..

Nothing much to see here. A OK-OK type fort with couple of water tanks and YES Words biggest TOAP. This fort is above Amer Fort and was military base of King Mansingh. I would rate it Average, you can skip if you have tight schedule.

I like the fantastic view from up here. Not much in the way of rooms or decor to see but a good place to wander around for a couple of hours. Walk up & back from Amber Fort, preferably before it gets hot & also very few people early in the day.

If you've seen Amber fort, this one will seem less impressive and rather simplistic. On a good day you can do decent hikes inside the fort and even walk the fence wall for a significant portion of the fort. There's a big cannon on top which is the major draw. When you arrive at the cannon, look across the valley... More
