The best thing to see in Jaigarh Fort is the Jaigarh Cannon. It is said to be the biggest cannon in the World, that can through cannons at a distance of 35 Km. It uses 100kg of gunpowder to fire a cannon. It needs the power of 4 elephants to turn the cannon.

Guide will not bargain on its fee because he will loot you by praising so much about shops product and will drag you into shop without completing tour. Product are fake and higly priced. Don't come under their false claims and promises about quality and return policies.
There is only canon otherwise it's average.

Fort with the largest cannon in the world. The fort is a great example of preserved forts of the Rajput kingdom. The fort was constructed as an military fort for the protection of Amber palace. The museum inside the fort is interesting and also the shop by the Rajasthan government is good to buy stuff. The water storage tanks with the history of gold being stored are also very interesting.

Taking Guide recommended.

The place is beautiful with a huge awe inspiring history but the guides are thugs. They give false stories and lead you to their internal shop of artefacts and manipulate you into buying. My strong suggestions dont buy from there. Go to only RTDC shops and buy as they loot you.

It is very spacious and large fort and needs considerable amount of energy, time and patience to roam around. Guides are available with fixed rates. It will take at-least 2-3hrs for checking out all major parts of the fort. Better not to go in a hurry schedule like 1hr or 1hr30min. in hand if you want to explore completely.

This fort has the world's largest cannon and the fort is one huge massive structure like a maze

There is a lot of walking and it is recommended to club this fort along with Nahargarh fort

If you are not interested in seeing the coutyards and the inner structure of the fort ,can just visit the largest cannon which is near the entrance of the fort

Jaipur ka Jharokha .......

The view from the Jaigarh Fort ......
It's timeless, from my first visit sometime in 2007 and my repeat visits thereafter, it never fails to amaze and offer a new window (pun intended) for the scenic beauty it offers.
A fort having the world's largest cannon which was never required to tbe fired except for a test fire which landed some 35 kms away and the crater is now a lake.
A fort that was built to restrain any attacking army from reaching its ramparts, never had to test it's defence due to the alliances it natured with being the in laws to the Great Mughal Emperor Akbar to being the alliances with the British and post independence providing the treasure which never was disclosed yet took a 50 days of search and blocking of the Delhi Jaipur Highway by the armed forces in 1977.

A tale of how love conquers and alliances helps progress to how betrayal and deceit hampers legacy.... Its all wrapped for an interesting lesson from the pages of history which needs to be treasured as we "progress" .

It was built in 1726 AD by Sawan Jai Singh II and sits at several hundred feet above the sea level. The almost-intact fort is enclosed by huge walls and is connected to the Amer Fort with subterranean passages. It is believed to be built to protect the Amer Fort and is one of the strongest monuments of Jaipur.

We visited the Jaigarh fort during last week of Sep’21 and the place was less crowded. The ticket to the Jaigarh fort costs INR 100 for Indian nationals and INR 50 for Indian students. The good thing is that private vehicles are allowed inside the fort at INR 100, otherwise it would have been difficult for us to walk such long distances under the scorching sun. This fort is managed by the Jaipur Royal Family. The Jaigarh Fort, located on the Aravalli range of hills provides an excellent of view of Aravalli hills and the Amer Fort down below. The view from fort is very amazing towards Jaipur city or Jal Mahal which is scenic beauty. The world's largest cannon on wheels, Jaivana is displayed here and is the main attraction. We hired a local guide and he told us stories of how Jaivana was test fired once which scared Mughal emperor Aurangzeb and the cannon was never used during an actual battle. The guide also told us about the treasures stored under the water tanks in the fort which was taken by Indira Gandhi during a search operation in 1977 during emergency, though there are no evidence for that. It must visit place if you are in Jaipur and can be covered along with Nahargarh fort and Amber Palace.
