Forts & Palaces


Looming beyond the hills of Jaigarh, is the awesome Nahargarh Fort, which provides a fabulous view of the city of Jaipur. Much of the old structures, are at present, in a rather decrepit condition, except for the fine structure, added by Sawai Ram Singh II and Sawai Madho Singh II.

The road from Amber through the hills can be travelled by jeep or by rickshaw zigzagging for a distance of one and a half kilometres before it straightens out to reveal the approach to Jaipur.
