    Jai Garh
    Jaigarh Fort is a must-visit destination in Jaipur. The fort is situated on top of a hill, and the view of the city from the fort is simply breathtaking. The fort is well-maintained, and the exhibits inside give a glimpse into the lives of the royals who once lived there. The highlight of the fort is the massive cannon, Jaivana, which is the world's largest cannon on wheels. The fort's architecture and design are impressive, and the guides are knowledgeable and provide interesting insights into the fort's history. Overall, a great place to visit for history buffs and anyone interested in Indian architecture.

    Place worth visiting
    It’s architectural marvel. This place has biggest cannon of the world. It was build here, used here and maintained here Surroundings are awesome. Architecture and civil engineering at its peak . If you are falling short of time, one can go in a vehicle till the cannon. That way you save on time and can avoid the heat of summer too.

    Story of cannon
    World's largest cannon on wheels Jaivana was the highlight of Jaigarh Fort. .Interesting stories of cannon of the fort being told such as cannon ball fell 35km away on a village once only which was doubtful.. But inspection showing being fired at least couple of times.Offering glimpse in to the rich cultural heritage of Rajasthan.with stunning views was the main attaction of the fort.

    Fort for Victory
    Jaigarh fort is nestled on top of the hillocks surrounding Amer. The fort was built to protect the city of Amer from the enemy attacks. The wall of Jaigarh measuring 30 km approximately surrounds all the surrounding hills making it the third longest wall in the world after Great Wall of China and Kumbhalgarh. The fort gives a beautiful scenic view of Amer fort, Nahargarh fort and the city of Jaipur. Its strategic position gives it advantage to scout long distances to protect the occupants from enemies. The fort also boasts of a huge water tank which can store water to cater to 10000 men for 2 years and a maze of canals crafted through the mountains to ensure that the tank is never empty. The feather on the cap is the Jaivan Cannon which is Asia's largest wheeled cannon. Not to forget the handicraft showroom which displays ancient Rajasthani artwork and regional culture in their true spirit.

    Worth a Visit if You Have Extra Time, Otherwise Not
    We hired a guide, it lasted only maybe 30 or 45 minutes but worth it because there aren't many signs around to guide us. It is only seen from outside, the walls and the cannon and the water tank. There's a handicraft store where you can get shawls and purses, etc. It is not much worth it in my opinion, unless you have the extra time.

    Huge . Make sure you have enough time !
    Wonderful history . Worth reading up on before. Be prepared for the cold if it is a winter day . Even if the city is sunny . Beautiful for photos is it’s a clear day . But even in the mist . Great photo opportunity.

    Fort with India's largest cannon and breath taking view.
    Jaigarh Fort is situated on the promontory called the Cheel ka Teela (Hill of Eagles) of the Aravalli range; it overlooks the Amer Fort and the Maota Lake, near Amer in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. The fort was built by Mirza Raja Jai Singh in 1726 to protect the Amer Fort. India's largest cannon jaivan cannon is placed at the top of this fort. It is mesmerizing how they placed the cannon and other armoury at the top of the hills in those old era when there were no machines no roads! It is just beautiful. The views from the fort are great, If you go to the last point, you can see the full Amer fort from there. It was a breathtaking view. You can see the panoramic view of the green hills surrounding the fort. The view of the wall built along the hills resembles the Chinese great Wall and is one of the attractions of the spot.

Not as nice as the other forts but still worth a stop as a few of the forts are located in the same area. Much smaller so easy to walk.

Frankly speaking, if you start your day with Amber fort, have lunch on way back and wind up the day with Nahargarh Fort with sunset view, you do not need to visit this fort (personal view)!
Its having a big cannon, nothing much more than that if you compare above mentioned two forts, also Jaigarh Fort is a private unlike Amber and Nahargarh Fort, so the entry fee is way more than the other two forts i.e.150 INR per person and parking charge is 100 as you need to park your car up to the hill or else you need to walk up to the hill...

The fort has a good history , a guide can tell better about it. The fort is home to the biggest cannon which is put in display. The fort also has some exhibits of some of the weapons and items from the past.

Good fort. But nothing exceptional. Just a big canon. However the views of Amer fort from the backside of jaigarh are excellent.
