Reviewed April 13, 2013

Thats both the canon and the expanse of the fort. Maybe worthwhile taking a guide to really appreciate the fort. lots of things to know about. Also A great vista of Amber from the viewing galleries at the extreme end of the fort. Will take some walking but worth it.

“Amazing views of Amber Fort & the Wall”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

The drive up and the views make this fort a great place to visit - the fort has lovely gardens but is otherwise average. The big canon, Jiavana, is spectacular when one considers it was cast in 1720 and had a range of 22 miles. Take your camera as there are so many photographic opportunities. Once one has visited Amber Fort it takes a lot of effort to go up the Jaigarh but do it as you will enjoy the views. View a detailed picture gallery of this fort at http:/hennopsrover.blogspot.com.

“Hill fort”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Jaigarh fort is one of Jaipur's most impressive hill forts and other than the beautiful location it should be visited for its cannon - the largest of its kind in Asia - the Jaivana. Jaigarh also has an intricate water storage system so visit it for these unique features. Only give yourself half a day to visit this fort.

“Biggest canon in the world!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Well worth a visit. I was not impressed with the traffic which is allowed into the fort as the cars climb the roads with speed and there are no pavements for pedestrians. The canon is impressive and under protective covering. The views of Jaipur from here are spectacular!

Reviewed March 30, 2013

Jaigarh fort is the guarding fort for the Amber fort. It is located on the mountain just above the Amber Fort and was used by the King's army as a guarding fort to guard the Fort of the King - Amber Fort lying on the lower mountain. It's huge, but if you have a car you can take it inside...
