“Disappointing Cannon but Wonderful Views”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

The giant cannon was a disappointment because it is covered by an ugly roof. On the other hand there are many places for wonderful views, especially down to the Amber Fort. This fort also has a palace section so don't miss that part. You can easily spend an hour or even 2 here. Luckily, you can drive from the cannon to the back of the fort where the palace starts but still it is a walk through the palace to some of the best views of the Amber Fort.

“Fantastic views!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Overlooking the city, the palace -now in ruins (almost)- it houses the largest artillery gun. Also worth seeing is the far end of the palace, which you reach through a few narrow passages and open courtyards. You get a great view of Amber Fort, plus another small artificial lake behind it, something I never knew existed. The fort also houses huge water reservoirs which served the Pink City well in the past.

“World's largest Canon and Amazing view.”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

We visited Jaigarh Fort after visiting Nahargarh fort. This Fort is Famous for world's largest canon named JaiVaan . It also gives you mesmerizing view of old city and Amber Fort. Though the Fort is not maintained properly, but still worth a visit. But Beware of Monkeys.

“Average fort, fantastic palace”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

The fort lacks some oomph, apart from the huge cannon. The palace is the gem here and take the guide to show you through and it is a maze of different pathways. Beware the guides here all anticiapte a tip and you may need to tip up to three or four times. The guide on the armoury you can do without as you can work it out for yourself.

“Good view from the top but nothing otherwise”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

It is a very small fort. The view from the top is very nice. You can see the entire city of Jaipur including the city palace & Jantar Mantar... The place is not well maintained & the fort as such is small. Jaighad & Amer forts are better than this. Go for this only if you have the time.
