Massive fort. Think I almost had a heart attack walking up those damn trails. Guild was helpful going for cold water for me. I swear, it was almost a 70 degree angle going up. Have to be careful as going down was just as problematic. It was so awesome sight, when I did get too the top.

Hiking the Nagpahari Hill up to the Taragarh fort was the best experience I had in Ajmer. I wanna thank the Trip Advisor for having listed this attraction as a place to see in Ajmer . It (fort) has been visible ever since I de-boarded from the train overlooking majestically from the top of the Nagpahari hill. The best time to visit the fort is in the morning or afternoon in the summer.From the Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra mosque, vehicles are available to reach the top for 500 INR. But if you are strong enough, the challenge is to hike the mountain. That is awesome. The path way is there to the top. Rocks that have emerged after soil being washed away by rain form natural steps to go up. It will never ever be boring with so many Muslim pilgrims going up the hill to a Dargah on top of it. There are small sheds all around from the ground to the top of the mountain selling various items. In scorching sun light, you can stop at these sheds. They will invite you to sit for while , rest and go. There are boutiques that sell cold water and soft drink bottles. CD /DVD sellers play Khawali music loudly. These soul soothing religious music really takes your tiredness off. Up you go, the scene of underlying ajmer city becomes extremely beautiful. From your ascend , you may see the fort wall up on the mountain and also a wall on the adjacent mountain reminding China's great wall.Thick thorny bushes filled satellite mountains look gorgeous. Once you reach the top, the panoramic view of the city with the Foy sagar lake and Ana sagar lake is breathtaking.If you are an islamic believer, you may visit the dargah within the fort . Well if you do not like hiking or else if you are not an Islamic devotee, the fort may look unattractive once you reach the summit of the mounatin. So think twice if you will be satisfied with seeing the rampart walls and the panoramic view before spending energy on hiking or 500 INR . Personally I enjoyed the climb.

Clearly one of the greatest forts of north India. Given that Bundi had no paucity of water and had fertile land around, it is a surprise that it did not become a bigger power centre in history. The fort i imposing and the wall can be seen running all around for miles and miles. You can get great views of the town. I wish it were better preserved and maintained. It has the potential to inspire awe in any visitor - even ones who have seen plenty of forts in India.

Unfortunately, Taragarh symbolizes everything wrong with modern India. They charge a hefty 100 rupees to enter (add 50 if you are foolish enough to pay for a camera) and it wouldn't even be worth it if it were free (it's not worth the effort to hike up to it). It's been left in a state of complete decay for what appears to be 100 years. The trails are blocked with fallen trees, there is garbage everywhere and it stinks like excrement and urine. Where does the entrance fees go? Certainly mot towards any maintenence or conservation. For me, Taragarh was the guesthouse who takes my 400 rupees but have never cleaned the walls and won't even clean the turd stain in the toilet or the bus companies who gladly take my money but offers nothing in the way of comfort, convenience, or cleanliness. Sadly, it represents the other side of modern India where everyone wants money (mainly yours) and wants to do nothing for it. Instead of charging 100 rupees to visit Taragarh they should offer a sincere apology something like this: "I am sorry, for while our ancestors constructed some of the most impressive structures in the world, we have become a people too greedy and too lazy to even maintain their achievements". Bundi is also known as the city of step wells (baoris) as it has close to 100 of them, but again 95% are treated like dumpsters. Shame on you India for not looking after your national treasures. Try working for your money!
