HolidayIQ Reviewer Shalini Tiwari adds, “Wonderful architecture and beauty in true sense Amber Fort is considered to be the best amongst the 3 forts (Nahargarh, Jaigarh, and Amber) located near each other. The ticket line is long on weekends so please make sure that is the first thing you do once you reach there. Inside is a palace made up of mirrors which is a beauty in the true sense. The fort's architecture is very interesting and you spend hours exploring rooms and galleries across the fort. There are shops towards the exit where you can buy souvenirs on your way back. Between all the exploring, try standing for a while listening to the vendors playing music right at the entrance towards the fort. And oh! Please don't miss the kulfi right at the entry of the fort.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Saurabh Gupta says, “Invincible and mighty Fort; The name Mehrangarh began to appear in chronicles and poems. Mehra is a Rajasthani word for the Sun and it is not at all unlikely that the Suryavanshi Rathores (Sun Dynasty) would name their first citadel in their mythological ancestor's honor. One has to visit the fort to realize the sheer massive size of it. It is located in the heart of Jodhpur city. This is one of the biggest forts in the country built in the 14th century and it is maintained in a very good condition.

This fort is located on a plateau. The moment you enter the fort from a huge gate will remind you of a great piece of art which we have read in history or seen in movies. That moment itself gives you a royal feeling right away. It's located in the old city and has 7 giant gates to reach the top of the Fort. The architecture will amaze you and kept you thinking how do they able to build those giant historical monuments with a fine finishing artwork on every wall and which is different to every other and unique too.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Dharmesh Kumar shares, “One of the most amazing forts to go for, the capital of Shivaji Maharaj's kingdom, the best time is the rainy season. I spent one full day there and it has been the most memorable trek dotted by innumerable picturesque waterfalls. One should get ready to get all wet, phones, wallets should be kept aside. Morning breakfast compulsory even though there are some vada pav stalls available at the foot of the fort. Takmak Tok at the top is a wonderful view but one should be careful at the top. Wear shoes with a good grip as it gets slippery near waterfalls and keeps one full day aside to enjoy to the fullest. No point in using the ropeway, the fun is in trekking all along.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Raj Mehta adds, “Worthy place to visit; Raigad is one of the oldest forts in India. It was the capital of Maratha empire founded by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Raigad fort is around 25 kilometers from Mahad in Raigad district in the state of Maharashtra. State transport buses available from Mahad. Ropeway services are available to go to the fort.” Read Full Review
