Not so crowded like many other places in Jaipur. The fort is impressive and you have a great view of the surrounding hills. Price is okay (100 INR for foreigners)

The fort is on a mountaintop with a huge canon built in 18th century that test fired to a distance of 33 km. The structure of the fort is huge and an engineering marvel, complete with dance court. One must wonder how it was built and what resources it took hundreds of years ago. When in Jaipur, one must keep... More

This is a fort above Amer fort. Made essentially for the soldiers. So it's huge and imposing. The cars can take you right inside, so please take your car if you have one else you will need to walk a lot. Don't miss the huge cannon, armoury and garden overlooking Amer fort.

This property is not well maintained by the Govt (no surprise there). Some fine sweeping views from the ramparts and a massive cannon are the only attractions. Beware of the huge number of monkeys around. Dont carry any foodstuffs in your hands and do not eye ball them. It has a basic restaurant on the grounds if you have forgotten... More

Jaigarh fort is huge, but there's not much to see and most of it is not exceptional (compared to other like buildings like Fatehpur Sikri or Amer fort). Nonetheless, you can have quite an awesome view of Amer fort that is well worth the entrance fee. 45 minutes to an hour can be enough, but it takes some time to... More

My original plan on a lazy Sunday 7 AM morning was- Ride to Nahargarh, do some shooting on the way-up and come down. And then I decided to divert to Jaigarh. And below is my experience: Brief Introduction- Jaigarh Fort is situated on the hill called the Cheel ka Teela (Hill of Eagles) of the Aravalli range; it overlooks the... More

Worth a visit for canon and Palace. Filled with Katputli dance - Puppet program. Palace though not exotic but still worth a visit

We had a walk around this gorgeous fort and enjoyed refreshments in the restaurant. We did a private tour of the kings dining room. Great views and lots of space. Monkeys a bit cray cray.
