After visiting Amer Fort and Nahargarh fort, visit to Jaigarh fort was a bit of let down. The only major artefact is the largest canon in India. Both Amer and Nahargarh forts are maintained in a better way and we wondered whether Jaigarh Fort was worth a visit!

Included in the ticket for the City Palace, you can either be driven to here or you can walk up from Amber Fort. It takes 20-25 minutes to walk up from the gate of Amber Fort - it's not too steep and the road is cobbles and stone. The only sign of the proposed electric golf cart access to the... More

Jaigarh boasts of world's largest wheeled canon. The road to fort is quite arduous and not maintained well. Apart from Canon, there isn't much to see, unless you are museum type of person. Canon is impressive , so is view from the point where canon is installed.

Jaigarh fort is close by to the Amer fort and you can drive your vehicle right into the fort very close to the huge cannon kept on display. Well the only good thing to see here is the big cannon which faces Jaipur city now. I am told that the Jaipur Rajputana had this built to ward off possible mughal... More

Not much to see in the fort. Audio guide is not available hence you have to depend on local or Govt Guides. THey are not so well vershed with the history of the Cannon. This cannon was used to capture Shivaji. this vital info was missing when guide was taking through the history

Having spent the rest of our golden triangle trip being hustled by guides, who were more interested in taking us shoppint to their 'favourite' shops, it was nice to visit Jaigarh fort. We visited in the morning, when the fort was quiet. We were hastled to take a guided tour at the start, but once we managed to dodge this,... More

This is close to the Amber fort and can be visited on the same day. The Nahargarh fort can also be clubbed and all 3 can be viewed on the same day. It is good to hire a guide who can describe the importance of all the chambers and rooms.

The road journey to the fort is quite nice and specially when you see the jal mahal and the lake from a height with the aravalli's surrounding it is quite nice. Suggest take a guide as it just costs about 100 bucks. Not too much to see but the view of the surrounding areas from the fort is quite nice... More

Jaigarth Fort sits imposingly high across from Amer Palace Fort and its primarily military functions is still visible in the layout of the expansive walls (there is also a huge early 18th century cannon on display). An annoying feature while visiting the fort are the numerous cars that drive onto the premises and bring the noise and congestion right into... More
