One of the best places for conservation, history and amount of detail in its architecture. Must see is Arms museum, 800 yrs old temple in fort, Jaivaan the largest cannon in the world, puppet show in inner hal and the view from the Chattries in the last corners of the fort. And as if that were not enough, The views... More

Jaigarh the fort located above the Amber Fort seems to be a military centre of the Jaipur rulers.... The fort seems to be designed for battle. The views are the fort are breathtaking and the Jaivana Cannon is humongous and worth seeing.

Worth a visit to see the views of the valley and palace. I coupled the visit with the Palace and walked up from the palace to the fort. It was about a 30 min climb through the underground passageway and along an outdoor passage between walls. An interesting way to approach the fort, much better than driving up there. I... More

Worth a drive by only... The view from the fort is spectacular and the largest cannon in the world is worth looking at. Besides that it is a worn out place with low maintenance and lots of monkeys to beware off.

the best part is by paying some extra amount you can take your car under the fort. We also took guide for just INR 100 and he has vast knowledge on the fort history. We saw the world's largest canon and also saw lot of interesting spots inside the fort. There were eateries available for food and water. We also... More

If you are tarvelling Jaipur & not seen Jaigarh Fort ...then your trip is useless. Really when you are reaching at the foot of hill, you can see a little view of fort....But when you are climbing & reaching on the base of fort & seeing the bottom view...Its unbelievable. One thing is very important, you should have sufficient time.... More
