Amidst rock-strewn, scrubby hills, Jaigarh Fort is one of the three-hilltop forts that stands above all. This imposing fort was designed by Jai Singh I, but the preserved structure which you see today, dates from the reign of Jai Sigh II. Jaigarh (Victory Fort) was never conquered, it serves as an excellent example of defensive structures of the XVII century.... More

Located on the Cheel ka Teela (Hill of Eagles) of Aravalli range of hills; it overlooks the Amber Fort & the Maota Lake, near town of Amber in Jaipur. This 3 km long & 1 km wide fort also known as Victory Fort. Jaigarh Fort and Amber Fort are connected by passages and considered as one complex. It was a... More

I have always found this palace more scenic than Nahargarh and Amber Fort. Jaigarh is a must visit to see the biggest Cannon, the foundry, the views all around including amer fort and the lakes, and the bhul-bhaliaya corriders. Wish the govt. did a better job in maintaining it.

Located 15 km from the city on a hill, it overlooks the Amer fort and palaces. The huge cannon on wheels is noteworthy. Open 10 am to 4:30 pm. Entry Fee Rs.20.

The cannon is a must see. The distance of 22 miles they claim it projected the cannon ball is something that needs verification though. The best part is that you can drive your car all the way up for a small fee. So, no need to walk up if you want to avoid the tiredness.

Jaigarh Fort is a must go place in Jaipur. Apart from the huge area that this for covers, there's a cannon on the top of the fort which is the world's biggest. The name is Jaivana and is really huge. Looks pretty devastating. Apart from this, the fort had an armoury section and the museum which is very good.

My Visit to this place was done on 14th march 2015 and the main moto for the same was to see the Jaivana Cannon. We reached this place around 1 pm in afternoon and that day it was a Rainy Day.

Many have called this fort ok,one time visit, etc. But for me its a must visit. Perched on top of a hill approach is through a well maintained road. For extra Rs 50 you can drive in with your vehicle as well. This will make sense as else you would get drained out walking around the huge fort. The highlight... More
