    Breathtaking location and view
    Main attractions in this fort are sheeshmahal and wax museum. The price is too high for these two main attractions but definitely must see attractions if you are an art lover and have time in hand at Jaipur. Sheeshmahal has a wonder created with 21000+ glass/mirror pieces. Wax museum has very few statues and paintings. No photography allowed. You have different packages for pics to be clicked by their own photographer who follows you once you register at the entrance. Once you are done with the tour of wax museum, they give you a digital copy of your pics. No photography allowed in sheeshmahal. There is a clear demarcation representing summer and winter season effect in the premises. The colours used are natural and for yellow colour they have used real gold.

    Stunning views
    Having much historical importance the fort has sweeping views of the city with Shish Mahal and Wax Museum nearby. ,It was not so crowded. Complete with cannon and gunports, it is covered with forest and home of many wild animals.

    Beautiful Fresco Paintings
    Nahargarh Fort is one of the main sights you should not miss in Jaipur! It was fun to wander through all the many apartments and rooms in the palace, the fresco paintings on the walls were beautiful. We did Amber Palace, Jaigarh Fort and then ended the day here at Nahargarh Fort for sunset on the roof, beautiful!

    Best view of Jaipur
    Jewel of the crown of Jaipur. Visit at evening for a panoramic view of Jaipur. Beautiful sunset. Nice palace. View from the top is amazing. But carry your own vehicle or you will be looted by auto drivers for journey downward at night .

    Love the Tiger Fort
    Our guide suggested this as an option for our group. We were picked up at our accommodation by jeep and driven to the fort. The road isn’t great, but the drivers are experienced. The fort is very impressive, much larger than I thought initially, perfect to watch the sunset from.

    Memorable day but please avoid wax museum and Sheesh Mahal!
    During our Jaipur trip, our cab driver took us straightforward to Jaipur Wax Museum Nahargarh Fort without our knowledge (We mistook if this was the Nahargarh Fort, obviously drivers get commission out of it), so this place is a private, small area and ironically the entry fee per person (even for a child) is 500 whereas Nahargarh Fort entry fee is 50 INR. Moreover, if we take photos inside the museum it would cost 200 per 20 photos, does it a make sense? However we would be happier if the museum would worth of it, but unfortunately it's not...our Kolkata many Durga Puja pandals are having similar or more design work (Sheesh Mahal inside the was museum area), simply we wasted our time and money there! We would recommend you not to visit Wax musuem along with Sheesh Mahal at all! Rather please enjoy the natural beauty of Nahargarh Fort in 2nd half of the day to get the sunset view! (No need to cover Jaigarh fort, you can cover Amber fort in the morning, have lunch on the way back and visit Nahargarh Fort in 2nd half )

    Average fort by lofty Rajasthan standards, maybe explore the sunset view.
    Will find this structure average if you have visited some of the other famed monuments in Rajasthan. Can be visited if you made the long trip to Amber fort. Some other reviews mention that sunset view is beautiful from this fort and it's USP more than the fort itself. May well be the case as it nicely overlooks the city. I didn't visit at sunset.

    If you can, go at sunset. Meant to be stunning then.
    This is beautiful. I wanted to go at sunset, as it is meant to be stunning then but it was too busy. Lovely in the day. Many areas to explore. Different from the other forts. Had more character. The Jaipur Wax Museum at Nahargarh Fort is located here but it isn't included in your ticket price. I didn't bother with this.

    Fort with great sunset point and panoramic view of Pink city.
    Nahargarh Fort is located Aravali hills. Its an absolute delight! With its panoramic views of Jaipur, rich history, and captivating architecture, it's a must-visit for anyone exploring the Pink City. The whole city of Jaipur can be observed from this fort which gives a bird's eye view of the city, especially in evening. A truly memorable experience! Entry ticket is Rs. 52/ person

The fort is ideally located on top for a beautiful view of the jaipur city... especially with the sunset as the backdrop.
The inside of the fort built for the many queens are quite good but no match for the views outside from the top of the nahargarh fort. worth the visit. not to miss.

We visited the Nahargarh fort during last week of Sep’21. The ticket to the Nahargarh fort costs INR 50 for Indian nationals and INR 20 for Indian students. We purchased a composite ticket for INR 400 (INR 100 for students) which allows entry into 8 attractions managed by Government of Rajasthan. City palace, Jaigarh fort etc are managed privately by the Jaipur Royal Family and therefore not covered under the composite ticket. It’s the highest of the three forts in Amer and located on the Aravalli hills. The fort offers scenic views of the Jaipur city. The other attraction within its premises is wax museum, sheesh mahal, puppet show etc which are managed by private operators with separate entry fees of INR 500. There are also Segway rides for INR 200.
On the way you uphill, you will find a diversion towards Jaigarh fort as well and at the base Amber palace is located.
Nahargarh fort is open from 10 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. This is a must visit attraction if you are in Jaipur and taking a guide is recommended.

Famous Attraction of Jaipur, built by Maharaja Jaisingh II. Basically this fort was the residence of 9 queens of King, separate same portion was made for each queen having. It also served as defence property for the rulers. Breath taking view of jaipur city can also be witnessed from there. There you find one wax museum and sheesh mahal as famous attraction of there. In wax museum you can watch wax statues near to life . Sheesh mahal is really mesmerizing Attraction of the property made up of glass work, 24 caratgold plated paintings.. not to miss.

We could only visit the Madhavendra Bhawan in detail since we went around 5pm. even the Baoli was closed for view, though the security guard was sitting at the top of the stairs and could allow small groups to descend the stairs. Moreover at all signages the fort is described to be open till 7pm, without mentioning that the baoli will be closed to visitors. Post dusk, the behaviour of the uncomfortably friendly locals could be better checked with appropriate security measures. Likewise the local transport could be better utilised if only there were standard rates preventing the fleecing of tourists. The attitude of locals can attract or divert tourists and a State which advertises about "Padharo mhare desh" ought to have better policies to maintain their supremacy in tourism.

Nahargarh Fort is located at the highest hill location in Jaipur.
It is beautifully built but the main attraction of this fort is the tour of Sheesh Mahal. As the name suggests, a place entirely made of glass.
There are no pictures allowed inside.
The ticket is for 500/- per person which includes the tour of Sheesh Mahal, Wax Museum, a kathputli show, a magic show and pottery. It was every bit worth it.

Go there with your family to relax and enjoy the view of the city.

Located on the hilltop near Amber fort and palace and Jaigarh Fort. It can be reached by taking a forest road. The fort walls can be seen from a distance. The fort was built for emergency purposes in case of any attack on the kingdom. What we see inside the fort is where the king can live with his 9 wife’s and how all the rooms are located around one courtyard. From the top of the fort, we can see the city view. Inside the fort complex there is a Wax museum and 2 restaurants. Overall, it is an interesting place to visit.

The Nahargarh fort was not half as impressive as the Amber Palace or the Agra Fort. Its a 20min drive (by car) up the mountain further than Amber Palace, on windy narrow roads and once you get there it seems completely commercialized (wax museum?) and not well maintained. Luckily we only paid SAARC rates to enter this site or I would have been quite disappointed. The Step well is quite interesting to see, but again the Abhaneri Step well is far more impressive if you've seen that. Would probably recommend to skip this unless you have extra time to kill. I would rather have shopped in the market places than spend 2 hours here.

Gives a terrific view of Jaipur city. A visit around sunset time is definitely worth it. Takes about 1 hour to see the place and watch the sunset from sunset point

The auto guys pester you to visit the house of wax inside the fort complex as they get a good commission but we skipped it

The view from the top makes the trip much worth the long drive

It's a loosely developed tourist destination where the tourism board is not sure what to do of place.
First of all, its at a high point of the city, so be very careful on choosing the driver.
Once you pass the entrance, the points of interest are scattered around. Some robotic animal show here, sunset point there. Some high end restaurant here, some temple there. There were no proper sigb boards or history or relevance of the place mentioned anywhere.
There is an rtdc restaurant located in nahargarh from where you can see the whole city. Sounds superb but the service is total turn off.
In all, no history, no nature, no thrill. Totally avoidable.
