Jaigarh Fort

Jaigarh Fort

Perched on a premonitory popularly known as 'Cheel ka Teela', Jaigarh Fort owes its construction to Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. The Maharaja got the Jaigarh Fort constructed to protect Amer Fort. The fort was built in 1726 and was named after Maharaja Jai Singh.

Jaigarh Fort strikes similarity with Amer Fort in its design. Red sandstone has been used for the construction of the fort which is set opulently in a length of 3 km. It also has within its precincts the biggest cannon in the world. Its huge palace complex which includes monuments like Laxmi Vilas, Lalit Mandir, Aram Mandir and the Vilas Mandir also has a well maintained garden of the time when the fort was made preserved to this day. Tourists crowd to catch a glimpse of the garden as well as an armory and a museum.

The fort of Jaigarh never succumbed in a battle and was the strongest of the three forts in Jaipur. It is a glorious reminder of the era of Rajputs and reminds one of a bygone era.

Like most of the other ancient land marks in Rajasthan, Jaigarh Fort has also lost its sheen yet it has retained its grandeur and is worth every second that one spends there. Its worth can be gauged from the fact that no visit to Jaipur is considered to be complete till one has undertaken a mandatory visit to Jaigarh Fort.

Testimonial

I booked a travel package of Rajasthan for me and my friend. It was a 15 day trip of India's desert state. Most of the cities we visited were well connected with national highways, providing us the easy accessibility of various places. However, some areas were congested making for us difficult to reach on time that may be because of development works on going on places. We loved our heritage hotel stays at Jaipur and Udaipur. We enjoyed the excursions of remote villages and desert. Good execution of trip.
