The first glimpse of the Jaigarh Fort from the Amber Fort will not make a bold statement unless one visits the fort and its inhabitant “Jaivana”, the largest canon of the world which was assembled there was fired only once in its lifetime. The defense strategy and effort to build the armoury atop a hill is commendable. The Fort also hosts a huge reservoir connected with intricate network of long canals. Please visit Jaigarh Fort not just for the canon but also for amazing views surrounding it and the Jal Mahal in Maota Lake.
Do save on the energy and avail a car or autorickshaw to take you from Amer to Jaigarh to Nahargarh. You might end up spotting groups of peacock on the way as a bonanza.

Jaiharh Fort overlooks Amber Fort and the Maota Lakes. Jaiharh Fort was named after Jai Sing11 & was built in 1726. Its similar in structural design to the Amber Fort & is also known as Victory Fort.

The Fort houses the largest cannon in the world. The fort is built with thick walls of red sandstone which is impressive in the sunlight. There is also a large garden courtyard.

The armoury has a large collection on display of swords, shields, guns, & muskets. The Museum is located opposite which houses a large exhibition of photographs of the Royalty of Jaipur.

The views from the Fort of Aravalli hills and the Amber Fort directly below are highly impressive & definitely worth visiting for this reason alone.

Opens - (Hrs.): 9.00-16.30

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.

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.

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.
