Explore Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur

Nahargarh Fort

Standing majestically atop a ridge of the Aravalli Hills, Nahargarh Fort serves as an impressive northern backdrop to the bustling city of Jaipur. Built during the reign of Jai Singh in 1734 and later expanded in 1868, the fort was a formidable barrier that defended Jaipur against attacking enemies, earning its name Nahargarh, meaning "abode of tigers."

Within the walls of this magnificent fort lies the Madhavendra Bhawan, a luxurious summer retreat for the royal family. Built by Sawai Madho Singh, the palace features 12 elegant boudoirs for the queens, connected by corridors that are adorned with intricate murals. The king's suite sits at the head of the palace, providing a regal abode for the royal family. Even today, the palace remains a popular spot for local picnickers.

As night falls, Nahargarh Fort is a sight to behold when floodlit, offering a glittering view of the city lights below. For those seeking a luxurious escape in Jaipur, a visit to Nahargarh Fort is a must, where you can immerse yourself in the rich history and architectural brilliance of this iconic citadel.
