I have spent initial 10 years of my life in our ancestral house on Nahargarh Road. From the house, the fort is not more than 30 minutes of walk. So I have seen it changing its colours from bright golden to post 'Rang de basanti' era. We would go there early morning every day and spend hours there. But after a bollywood movie 'Rang De Basanti' was shot there, the site that we assumed to be our secret place, started attracting all kinds of people. It is no more safe to visit Nahargarh post 6-7 in the evening.
Nahargarh is full of such sites which would give you amazing and breathtaking views. To experience 280 degree view of Jaipur, one should visit Nahargarh at different times.
One of the lesser known paths is the walk way to Nahargarh that goes up from the old city of Jaipur. Nahargarh Road inside the walled city takes you straight to the fort. The Mohan Nagar area where which is the starting point of the uphill path is not very clean, but once you are on uphill walkway, it is just fine. Watching sun rise from Nahargarh is one of the best moments in Jaipur for me.
If your visit is coinciding with Diwali festival, I would suggest to go to Nahargarh and sit in Padao restaurant post evening hours to see Jaipur at its full glory. For this take the tar road that starts from Kanak Vrindavan.
