Nahargarh Fort

Nahargarh Fort

Perched on the edge of Aravalli Hills and overlooking Jaipur, Nahargarh Fort was originally termed as Sudarshangarh. As per a popular belief the place was haunted by the spirit of Nahar Singh Bhomia who repeatedly posed obstruction in the construction of the fort. The spirit was pacified when a temple was constructed in its name within the fort. It was from then that the fort became popular as Naharggarh Fort.

The fort itself was constructed in 1734 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, the founder of Jaipur who constructed it as an escape route. Walls of the fort cover the surrounding hills and form fortifications that connected it to Jaigarh.

The fort has however never witnessed any attack in its history though it has been witness to a number of historical events. During the great uprising of 1857 the British in the region, including the wife of the British resident, were moved to Nahargarh Fort for their well being.

Sawai Ram Singh further enhanced the fort in 1868 whereas Sawai Madho Sing constructed a number of palaces. Madhvendra Bhawan, constructed by, Sawai Madho Singh had suites for the queens as well as a suite for the king. The rooms here were linked by the corridors and they still have some of the delicate frescos. Nahargarh was also a hunting residence for the kings. s

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.
