HolidayIQ Reviewer Shivam Chauhan adds, “House to the largest ancient cannon on wheels of the world; Jaigarh Fort is one of the three main forts built on the Aravalli Hills and all these are quite close to each other and also to the famous Jail Mahala as well. ...As I entered the fort I chose to visit the canon foundry first as it is a quick tour then went on to see the remaining later. While returning from the foundry there is a point which gives you a good top view of Amber Fort and Jail Mahal, a must go. The sunset view from atop this fort is a feat to the eyesRead Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Vipul says “Mehrangarh fort; this fort is one of the most magnificent forts of not only Rajasthan, but entire India. It is located on the top a rocky hill and took centuries to get fully constructed. Given the height and width of the fort, it gave protection and strength to the city in true sense....The most interesting thing about the fort is that govt has made it very tourist friendly with brilliant quality audio guides and elevators at a little extra cost. The sunset view from the temple is known to be splendid.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ami Bhat shares, “The gorgeous colors of the lake during the sunset, the lovely boat ride and the serene feeling that you get when you are here definitely added up to make Udaipur the highlight of my trip. Go in for the sunset boat ride rather than the day one for the changing colors of the water is what will make your day. The boat rides can be availed from the City Palace...Watch out for the heritage buildings on the lake and the way they light up in the night as the daylight ceases. 'Magical' is the word I would use to describe the same.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Vinod Nair says, “A 300+ years old Fort Well Maintained Fort. This Fort goes down 300 yrs in history. It is just by the Baikal Fort Beach or the Pallikere Beach which is its real name. Fort is well maintained, with landscaped gardens and nice pathways. The highest point of the fort is a steep climb. So please wear a good footwear while coming, light clothes as it can get really hot and humid, sunscreens, hats, and sunglasses and a bottle of water. Come here during sunset and you will be amazed...Family and kids friendly, because of the steep hike elders might find it bit difficult but is definitely manageable.” Read Full Review
