Had to give it a two stars because even though the fort was beautiful inside , they still offer elephant rides!!!! Furious that in this day and age people are still riding elephants. The seats are heavy for them and in 40 degree heat they trapse up and down being hit with sticks, through their own excrement. It was appalling to watch. If you love elephants/ animals , or have common sense, don't ride an elephant.

Wasn’t much to it
Seen one fort you seen them all
Take a guide but don’t have high expectations on knowledge.
Was very busy
Monkeys in the car park are very friendly

This is a beautiful hilltop fort near to the 'Pink City' of Jaipur. It is possible to walk up but most people choose either an elephant ride (over which there appears to be some controversy) or a jeep ride to get to the fort. Divided into three quite distinct parts, the fort has some incredible architecture and is well worth a visit.

Amazing place albeit it being very busy. The only grumble I have is the use of elephants for the trek to the entrance gate. In the sweltering heat, these animals go up and down the path for hours to take visitors to the entrance gate. We have two legs to walk or there are also jeeps. Use them instead!
