How to visit the Imposing Nahargarh Fort, Jaipur's Best Viewpoint

Falling in love itme and love again is a given in the Rajasthan state, considering it has some of the most enchanting forts one could ever see. And Jaipur’s colossal Nahargarh Fort is another you’ll fall head over heels for. 

Set in the Aravalli Mountains, perched atop Cheel ka Teela, Nahargarh was built alongside its neighbours (Amer and Jaigarh Fort), to protect the city from invaders, and is now one of India’s most prominent forts, known for its opulence and grandeur, and incredible views over the ‘Pink City’.

The foundation of the magnificent Nahargarh Fort was laid in 1734 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, the king of Jaipur. Sawai Ram Singh II extended the fort in 1868, but the main complex, Madhvendra Bhawan, was built by Sawai Madho Singh in 1883 - 1892.t
