“Beyond Amer it's a jewel Jaigarh!!”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

In my previous visits I skipped Jaigarh assuming that there is not much to take a drive up the hill.But this sep2012,I went there after visiting Amer;what a sight to behold!!The green topped hills dotting the fort complex was joy for my eyes.The boundary wall is India's "great wall" akin to China's.My jaws dropped seeing the world's largest canon of vinatage era.The panoromic view from the arched doors built by Maharani Gayatri devi was a scene of paradise.

“Amazing fort with treasures and world's largest cannon!”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

If you visit Amer fort, you must visit Jaigarh and Nahargarh forts! Jaigarh fort is home to the world's largest cannon which weighs 50 tons and takes 4 elephants to turn around. The fort was home to around 17000 armymen of the then Jaipur king and its water supply/storage system is something unique. The guide also told us about how the government found treasure in one of the tanks and took it all away. Don't miss this place!

“Splendid”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

It has the world's biggest Cannon it was used to fire only once and this is the only unconquered fort ever no one ever dared to attack this fort, the fort has some amazing views from the top and car goes right inside the fort... you must try food at the restaurant specially ker sangri ki sabzi with Bajra Roti... the restaurant is run by the descendants of Chief Chef of King sawai Jai singh ji, that is what the Board outside the restaurant says... not a place to shop ...It has an amazing history of water harvesting and tunnel system with ancient purification systems.. take a guide will charge only 50 rupees

“interesting”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

Jaigarh fort was good. It's advisable to have a guide with you. He would charge you a minimal amount but would furnish you with all the details which takes you back in time of history.

“Great Views”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

This fort was beautiful and peaceful within; it was lovely to explore and take in all the views in the fort and the surrounds below. You are able to ride elephants up to the fort which you will need to barter for or you can take a four wheel drive. Vendors are intense there when first arriving and leaving you will be hassled, purchase if you want when leaving as prices drop
