Jaigarh is a functional fort entrusted with protecting Amber fort. It does not hence have fancy rooms etc. it is home to the large cannon Jaivan - definitely worth seeing. Feels nice to walk along the long walkways at the back section of the fort, especially when you get amazing views of Amber fort at the end.

Jaigarh Fort sits on a hill top with a commanding view of Jaipur and the The Amber Fort below. Large and well laid out, with an excellent antique weapons collection, photo gallery and museum. It is also the home of Jaivana cannon, the worlds largest cannon. it was moved by 4 elephants and then some additional oxen to rotate the barrel for firing. This is by far a much better fort than Nahargarh Fort, so just visit this one and skip the other. Be sure to watch for all the peacocks that roam the hill top area, as they are glorious and the National Bird of India.

For the entire duration of my Jaipur trip, this was the thought that ran through my mind.
Rajputs had everything: invincible forts, their own canon making factory..what more was needed? Why would they need to marry off their daughters to Mughals to ensure that their throne stayed intact?

The Jaiban is the largest canon in the world. Its USP is that it was used only once!
There is a museum where you can read about the canons, and the wars in which each canon was used. It is saddening to read that Hindu Rajput kings fought against Hindu Maratha kings.

There is a canon factory which is a must see. There is a point from where you can see Amber fort. There is a 1600 year old mandir on the fort.
