This fort acted as the main defense line for the city of Jaipur. The fort is a solid structure and portrays the far-sightedness and architecture of the Rajput rulers who built it. The watch towers, the massive canon, rain water harvesting systems, granary etc. are the unique features of this fort. A guide is a must here to understand and... More

Jaigarh fort is only known for the world's biggest cannon. It's located near to Amer fort, hardly 15 minutes drive from Amer fort. It has only one main attraction that is biggest cannon. There is small museum also. If you have school going children in your family then don't forget to take their school ID cards, because there is a... More

Jaigarh Fort was built by Jai Singh II to protect the Amber Fort and it has beautiful views of Amber Fort and the Maota Lake. The fort features a cannon named "Jaivana", which was then the world's largest cannon on wheels. Its exciting to reach the fort by the secret tunnel from Amber Fort. Its definitely a must-see destinations of... More

Jaipur offers a number of historic destinations for tourists and this is one of them. A good trip. Luckily the roads are quite well maintained although it's a bit narrow. I would suggest one to travel during the day as there seems to be no provision for street lighting. It's really beautiful how one see the entire with from the... More

This is an amazing fort. As you climb up you wonder how the kings would have moved with their entourage of elephants, horses and more. The structure gives you the creeps thinking of men who got killed in the fort during all the battles there. The large cannon stands as a sentry protecting the city of Jaipur and many walls... More

We visited Jaigarh Fort after exploring Amber Fort. We loved the imposing high walls, and the wonderful panorama from the higher platforms in this fort. It was also much less crowded and gave an otherworldly feel -- here, without the noise and hordes of tourists, you could close your eyes and imagine you are in another era. There was a... More
