    Never knew this place existed until a guided Golden Triangle tour. I found it a hidden gem, at least for American travelers!

    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.

    With a glorious past this fort is a must see place. Double shivling also makes it an interesting watch. Gupt darwaza… four big gates …. Place where Betrayers head was cut … Johar was done by 13,000 ladies … princess jumped in the pond with PARAS … so many unsung stories makes the place a must see

    The Jal Mahal is in the process of being renovated so it should open to the public one day. So for the time being it is just a photo op from the side of the lake, still vety beautiful though and I'm sure when it gets renovated it will be stunning.

    The Royal Gaitor, also known as Gaitor Ki Chhatriyan, rests serenely beneath the Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur. It serves as the final resting place for the Kacchwaha kings and princes, and some aptly refer to it as the "royal tumbas."

    These impressive structures, called "chhatris," are ornate cenotaphs, each unique and beautifully crafted. A blend of white marble and ochre sandstone, some are adorned with intricate carvings depicting nymphs, musicians, and even royal processions. Among these, Maharaja Jai Singh II's tomb stands out with its 20 majestic columns, a true testament to his reign.

    Beyond the historical significance, the Royal Gaitor offers a peaceful escape. Surrounded by rolling hills and embraced by fresh air, the entire site is meticulously maintained, providing a clean, serene, and visually pleasing experience for visitors.

    Tucked away, we decided to go here . The staff at the counter were very cordial and we were informed that till 31st October, it is on a 505 discount of entry tickets. On entering the garden, we thoroughly enjoed ourselves but it hardly takes much time to see the multi layered garden. What we found more interesting is on coming out of the garden, on the walls opposite to it, the paintings are still visible and given the fact, that there were on time tested palace walls, it mage it more special.

    This historical complex was actually a small city built of red sandstone and was founded by a 16th century Mughal Emperor (Emperor Akbar).   This was the capital of the Mughal Empire between 1570 and 1586.  He built the city to celebrate the birth of a heir but the Imperial Complex was abandoned in 1585, shortly after its completion, due to the exhaustion of the small, spring-fed lake that supplied the city with water.  Also, it is very close with the Rajputana, with which the Mughal Empire was often at war. In this complex, there is the Diwan Khana-I-Am which is the Hall of Public Audience. It consists of an extensive courtyard, enclosed by cloisters of 111 bays. the walls of the cloisters are carved with deep recesses. Emperor Akbar heard petitions impartially "but without harshness or ill will" here.

    first visit. Perhaps not our last. The place is beautiful. The experience was made much richer with the help of a security guard who gave us a tour around and took photos of us.

    Jaigarh Fort is a dominating defensive structure in Amer located higher than Amber Fort and overlooking the Lake. Great destination to visit and a breathtaking view point, good for panoramic photos. You do not really need a guide here just review some history and description before you go.
