One of the finest things to do in Jaipur is to marvel at the setting sun from Nahargarh – the hilltop fort. The rustic setting of the fort adds to the historic appeal of the place. While most of the structures within the fort are dilapidated, the ‘Manavendra Bhavan’ palace is in good condition. It was built by Madho Singh II for his nine queens. Each queen was offered a separate apartment which had a collection of a few rooms and a courtyard. The intricacy of the murals on the walls of the apartments is worth admiring. The rooftop terrace of the palace offers commanding views of Jaipur City. In last few years the visitors to Nahargarh have surged, so it is now considered one of the famous forts in Rajasthan.
Travel Tips: This fort can be reached by taking a short detour on your way to Jaigarh. You can also trek up the fort by taking a 2 km uphill path from Jaipur City. RTDC (Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation) runs a snacks bar in the fort. Due to the secluded location of the place, unsavoury youngsters can sometimes be found hanging around in the fort or in the surroundings. So, it is advisable that women should go accompanied by men.
Location: Nahargarh Fort, 3 km from Jaipur City, is situated on a hill off the Jaipur-Amer road. From here, you can visit Jaigarh Fort before making it to Amer.
