Interesting fort/palace with very beautiful rooms. The 9 Maharanis apartments are worth a visit, as is the vista from the ramparts of Amber Palace. It is reasonably large, so get in the shade as much as possible and carry water. Surprisingly cool in this palace on a hot day. Guide v useful.

It's about 10km long, narrow and stiff road to get up here. You can come up here by uber or tuk tuk. It's very large area here. If you want to see the world largest cannon, turn right after the entrance. Walked straight 12 o'clock direction till the end to see the big garden with the big city view. There... More

I'm not sure that the elephant ride up to the fort was not more exciting than the fort itself. There are some amazing sites inside the fort, especially stained glass windows.

Jaigarh fort is a must visit site in Jaipur. It requires lots of walking so have good sports shoes before you visit. The museum inside has good collection if arms used in ancient battles. The Nirwan Top ( Cannon gun ) overlooking the city is wonderful. The entire view of Amer is visible from here. The fort is at the... More

The cannon a major attraction...can fire and strike upto 35 kms. But silenced after the first fire as it had devastating effects due to boom. Don't forget the water storage facility and the tunnel walk to the Amer Fort which is adjacent...

In comparison to the other forts in the area (we saw all three in one day) it is the least interesting and smallest. It has some nice viewing points, but I personally wished I hadn't bothered.
