“Only for one attraction”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

The only attraction there is Jaivan Cannon, the largest one on wheel. Apart from that, the place is I'll maintained. If you are planning to visit this, take your vehicle inside this fort to the car park near the cannon, see the cannon, and leave for the better attractions of Jaipur.

“Do city palace first so you can get in free”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

There is not a whole lot to see at this fort. The views are fantastic, though, so it is worth the climb to the top to check that out. I would recommend going to the city palace first, because your ticket to the palace will get you in to this fort for free. When we were there there was a puppet show going on, and some musicians doing a piece. This was the highlight, other than the views. There is no audio guide- don't get roped in to hiring a guide. It will be overpriced for what you see!
Give yourself about 2 hours to view this site.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Get to know the splendour and don't fail to see the Weapons museum. Has decent toilet facilities for a change - pretty good apparently for the aged and women

“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Jaigarh fort is situated at higher altitude compared to Amer fort. One can have eagle's eye view of Amer Fort and part of Jaipur city including Jal Mahal.

Don't forget to watch world's largest Jaivana cannon.

Small vehicles are allowed till certain limit inside the fort premises. One can also travel from Jaigarh to Amer and vice-versa by golf carts at a small fee.

“Nice trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We visited this place and it is very nice, there is not much inside it, but the palace is very interesting, so go see it.
