Nahargarh Fort

#12 of 18 things to do in Jaipur

The Nahargarh is by far one of the most iconic palaces in the history of India, and not just in Jaipur or Rajasthan, but in the whole country. Just a glimpse of it speaks volume about its grandeur and royalty. Nahargarh is not only one of the favorite places of tourists, but even the locals of Jaipur love Nahargarh to the core and like to visit it often. And it is quite obvious to love Nahargarh. For one, it provides an excellent view of almost the whole of the city. It feels grand to stand on the terrace of this huge fort and catch a sunrise or experience a sunset. It is one of those places where no matter how much crowd it has got, one can feel peace right in the middle of the crowd.

The fort is huge with a lot of open spaces, is extremely airy, and well lit. The only disappointing thing is that the rooms are locked and the public cannot see what is inside those huge rooms, but even then it would be no good reason to not experience Nahargarh, visiting being a small word! A lot of shooting has taken place here too, no surprise it is a complete package. One such famous song is from the movie 'Rang De Basanti' named 'Masti ki Pathshala'. Just outside the fort, but within the premises, there is a pond, whose water has become quite dirty now, but is still extremely beautiful, with a lot of stairs leading down. But still, the best thing about Nahargarh is to stand at the terrace, with the wind blowing through your hair and having a look at the entire city of Jaipur beaming with pride on its royalty! It is truly a sight to behold, and not at all to be missed at any cost.

It would be preferable to wear some comfortable footwear as the terrain is quite rocky and there are a few stairs to climb. 

Just near the entry gate of Nahargarh Fort, there is newly made wax museum and a sheesh mahal, inspired by the great Amer fort for tourists. These two are quite interesting too, but are a bit expensive as the tickets, on weekends may cost around rs. 500 per person.
