Overall Rating:4.5

"Nice place to visit during evening. Can experience cool breeze and holistic view of Jaipur City. Please reach there only through same road we take for Jaigarh. Don't follow google maps blindly, use the road which passes nearby Jalmahal. And then take the exit towards Jaigarh Nahargarh road for a smooth driving experience, if you choose any other route you might have to steer through congested streets."

"Built mainly in 1734 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur, the fort was constructed as a place of retreat on the summit of the ridge above the city. Walls extended over the surrounding hills, forming fortifications that connected this fort to Jaigarh, the fort above the old capital of Amber. Though the fort never came under attack during the course of its history, it did see some historical events, notably the treaties with the Maratha forces who warred with Jaipur in the 18th century. During the Indian Mutiny of 1847, the Europeans of the region, including the British Resident's wife, were moved to Nahargarh fort by the king of Jaipur, Sawai Ram Singh, for their protection."

"Real good roads on the hill. loved driving there. however the fort was a disappointment. people throw garbage everywhere. no cleanup. and nothing much except view of the entire city and empty rooms. would have been great to see some of the actual props from the royal times...."

"The fort is quite nice, with a hefty foreigner price of 200INR. The palace is quite empty but worth a look. You get a good view of the new and old city. If you plan on walking up to the fort, there's a lot of broken glass, so maybe wear shoes."
