Jaigarh Fort, Jaipur has the worlds biggest cannon which was made in a inhouse canon factory. The cannon gives the clear idea of the grauduer, power and capabilities of the erstwhile jaipur dynasties.

Nargarh and Jaigarh Fort has the same entrance leading ṭo the top of the hill and Nargarh fort is mostly mistaken to be housing the largest canon in the world. But actually it's the Jaigarh fort that has it. The fort is superb and should be visited at least once.

Must visit for the rain water reservoirs and a beautiful panorama of Jaipur. Not to miss the Cannon foundries and the mighty and majestic Jaivana- the largest Cannon on wheels in the world!!

The views are just stunning and visiting a place with so much history is always a treat. The canon is impressive although smaller than I expected in comparison to the weight of it.

The fort is located at a high hill so it gives a magnificent views of city & also that of Amber fort. It is connected with amber fort through a passage however you cant access that passage. One of the most interesting thing about this fort is that almost all its facilitits are intact. The entry price is also cheap... More

This fort is not as big and magnificent as mighty Amber Fort, but it is a lot cheaper (85 rupees for foreigners at the time of writing). If you want to use your camera, it is an extra 50 rupees. This fort houses the world's largest cannon on wheels (which I think is why most people come here). Personally, it... More

Although there are many forts in Jaipur, but I think Jaigarh Fort is a must visit. It is situated on a mountain above the Amber Fort and below the Nahargarh Fort. The Jaigarg Fort gives an indepth knowledge of the day to day living of the Raja Family of those Times. How they do they live, eat, fight and so... More

You should plan this place along with Amber fort. The vehicals can go in quite a bit and reduce you walk time. Lot of it is well maintained and gives a view of the luxury it once represented.
