“Waste of time, poorly maintained”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

Very poorly maintained, waste of time. We went there as we were going to Nahargarh fort which is nearby.
They charge you fee for "camera" and after entering I could not use my camera for 30min as there was nothing to click. Looks deserted.
A short distance from fort is some larger canon (Asia's biggest) which is of historical importance.
Avoid if you are short on time.

“Even if you only visit for the views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

There are plenty of forts to visit around Jaipur, and Jaigarh Fort is probably the second on the list I'd visit again (Amber Fort being the first). If nothing else, the views from this fort were fantastic - not only of Amber Fort, Lake Palace and the valley and surrounding areas.
Easy walking around the fort, not too strenuous. When it's cool it can be a bit breezy while walking around the very top of the fort so make sure you have a jacket or you wont want to stay long.
Pretty well maintained and kept clean. A good place to look at more architecture and marvel at the historical significance of this fort and those around it.

“Cannonastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Amer is crowded and comes with standard hassles of any well-visited tourist spot. This fort is surely worth a visit and not just for the largest cannon but also for view of Amer from the North End

“One of the best Medieval Forts of India”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

History lovers must never fail to visit this Fort, As this is the most beautiful and most secure Fort of all the three forts in Jaipur which is located at a comparatively higher hill with a spectacular view of the city from there. In addition there is a small weaponry Museum in this Fort, the prize collection being ‘Jaivan cannon’ which is said to be the Biggest cannon presently available in the World. I have attached a photograph of the cannon with my wife standing near the wheel, which will give an idea of the size of the cannon that is located in exclusive shed, made for it. It is said that, the Jaigarh Fort was built in the 15th century. There is also a well designed cannon foundry with in this Fort, indicating that it was used for the production of all kinds of Weapons of medieval India.
The Fort can be reached by a steep road that goes up to the Entrance of the Fort. There is an entry fee of Rs.35/- for Indians and Rs.85 for Foreigners. There is no restaurant or any other eatery up there except for a small shop which sells some soft drinks.

“Fabulous views!”

It's worth visiting for breathtaking views of Amber fort, Lake Palace (Jal Mahal) and the valley. The huge cannon impressed as well.
