Nahargarh Fort is a famous tourist attraction in Jaipur that was constructed by Sawai Man Singh. The construction of this fort was completed in 1734 and was expanded in 1868. This fort has huge walls and bastions that were later renovated in 1880 by Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh, with murals and beautiful designs. Situated on the Aravalli Mountain Range, it reflects the unique fusion of Indian and European architectural styles.

The fort was named after Prince Nahar Singh, whose soul was believed to disrupt the construction of this fort. Nahargarh essentially means 'the abode of tigers' and houses the Madhavendra Bhavan which is one of its major attractions. This bhavan was used by the royal family during the summer season. It is still a popular picnic spot among the travellers coming to Jaipur. There is also a cafeteria and a restaurant inside the fort complex.

"Scenic views and medieval architectures" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
The first thing is that one has to walk a lot to get the scenic view of the city from too, but once you reach on the top the view is just awesome. To start with some of the basic history of the fort which we came to know once we were there, Nahargarh was earlier known as Sudarshangarh and was built in 1734 by Maharaj Sawai Jai Singh II, this place is said to be haunted once. You will find lot of temples and buildings inside the fort. Generally this was built for the retreat of king and for defence purposes but this fort was never attacked by enemies. Donít miss madhavendra bhawan it is actually has 12 suits for 12 queens of sawai madho Singh. It can also be seen in some of the famous Bollywood movies which I came to know from the locals, movies like rang the Basanti and Jodha Akbar are shoot here .

"Nahargarh Fort Jaipur"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Rang the basanti shooting site, It is famous in youths. You can travel and view the beautiful Jaipur from here. You can view the fort and views from the fort. Their is a entrance fees, don't load yourself with heavy bags, just take water and small snacks with you.
Their are 2 restaurants in fort, one is classy and costly and other one for basic needs. You can choose according to your budget. It is close to amber fort about 10-11kms but in same area. So you can plan both the sites together

"Nahargarh Fort - The Majestic Icon of Rajasthan"

  • 5.6/7
  • Posted Nov 24, 2017
Nahargarh Fort stands on the edge of the Aravalli Hills, overlooking the city of Jaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It is open from 10 AM not 8:00 am. Along with Amer Fort and Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh once formed a strong defense ring for the city. The fort was originally named Sudarshan Garh, but it became known as Nahargarh, which means 'abode of tigers'. The popular belief is that Nahar here stands for Nahar Singh Bhomia, whose spirit haunted the place and obstructed construction of the fort. Nahar's spirit was pacified by building a temple in his memory within the fort, which thus became known by his name.

Lovely place for hangout. You can visit here for no reason. Late night visit is a must try. Restaurant in fort premises is also decent but gets closed in night.

"Excellent fort"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Oct 15, 2017
The†best time to visit Jaipur†is during winter when the weather is pleasant. And Nahargarh is best visited during the day. The fort forms a perfect location to spend an entire day. You can also couple it with the other two forts nearby, Amer and Jaigharh. †
It is advisable to first visit Nahargarh fort. You can spend the morning there and have lunch there. There after you can move to Jaigarh which is only a KM from Nahargarh.

"Best place to see the historical things and view .."

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 2, 2017
Ahargarh Fort is one of the famous forts in India which is located in Jaipur. As the Nahargarh Fort is situated on the top of Aravalli hills so the view of the Jaipur city form there is incredible. I have already visited this place so many times. In 1734 rajput king sawai jai king built the nahargarh fort. From the top of the fort we can experience fantastic impressive view of Jaipur city. The fort was saved from any attack during Maugham rule. In British reign many times the fort worked as a saviour for soldiers. 1868 it extended little. Nahargarh means abode of tiger. †

It is counted one of the main fort of Jaipur, it has highest peak point of Jaipur, if you want to go then you can go by self vehicle or by taking taxi, because no public transport go there. There is enough parking space for vehicles fort is open at 10:00 to 05:00 everyday.

It is a fort but the view from top is amazing. Early morning sun rise make it fully different. When all the city was sleeping we go there and waiting for the sun rise. There after a ray of light comes and all the beauty come there. #Nature #history #holidayiq #JioMags
