Magnificent Fort
Oct 2020 • Solo
The second most important fort to visit in Jaipur, this fort was built mainly to protect the Amber fort. The main attraction here is the Jaivana Cannon which was the world's largest cannon at the time of its manufacture and it was fired only once. The fort offers a beautiful view of the surroundings from the top. One hour is sufficient to visit the fort and photography is permitted.

The Jaivana Canon in Jaigarh Fort is what that attracts tourists. Fort is well maintained and still the royal family lives there . From the hill top you see the entire Jaipur city!

Mesmerising Jaigarh fort
Jan 2021
The Jaigarh Fort is still the property of the royal family of Jaipur. It's on the montain. It is well maintained and has lots of historical values. Since it's a privately owned property, thee are many weddings, movie shootings etc take place within the palace. From the back side of the palace the Amber fort can be seen. There is a tunnel which connects Amber fort with the Jairgarh fort.

The fort with a big gun and an army of monkeys
Jan 2018 • Family
This truly is a fort with a lot of trouble some monkeys constantly attacking tourists carrying food or teasing them so if you are any one of the above don't be.
Be sure to have your own booked transportation as vehicle traffic is minimal and getting a ride back to the city extremely troublesome.
Things to see are the massive cannon and the fort museum which is currently poorly maintained by the current king and his trusts.
This can be avoided if you are short of time but can be done in conjunction with the Amer fort visit.

Worlds largest cannon in the entire history
Sep 2019
jaigarh fort was basically to protect the amer fort & it has worlds largest cannon inside it which has capacity to destroy the entire city in one go
The cannon has not been used once even but its an treat to watch an massive cannon which is probably much bigger than ur suv cars
Also the view from this place is so beautiful & try out the restaurant over there for some quick drinks with view

Jaigarh Fort
Oct 2019
For some reason not that many people go up here. That's their loss!
This is a large historical military complex that is well worth exploring in full. The real highlight is right at the end high point with beautiful battlements encircling a lovely garden. Don't leave without finding it as many seem to do.
One downside of this site is that they allow cars to drive in for a fee which somewhat spoiled the ambience of some of the more accessible locations.
You really don't need a guide here as long as you do a bit of reading before visiting
