Jaigarh Fort, JaipurAbout Jaigarh Fort
Jaigarh Fort, meaning the fort of victory, is the most spectacular of three forts in Jaipur. Built in the year 1726 by Sawai Jai Singh, this fort served as the royal treasury of the Kachwaha for several years. One of the best examples of full-fledged citadels, the Jaigarh Fort was constructed for the defensive purposes. The fort is based on a cliff and is flanked by massive battlements, which have inside walkways.

The structure of the fort is quite simple and similar to other forts and palaces of Jaipur. The fort has no palace or other delicate structures, which clearly indicates the intention of Sawai Jai Singh, that it was built mainly as a military structure. Jaigarh Fort is among a few military monuments of medieval India. It has residential structures, a granary, a cannon foundry, several temples and a tall tower. The major attraction of the fort is a massive cannon - Jaivana, which is the largest wheeled cannon of the world. Other attractions of the fort include the fortifications, museum and the ingenious water storage system.
Taj Mahal
The watchtower - Diwa Burj, offers spectacular views of Jaipur city and the nearby Amber Fort. The water supply system of the fort and its storage reservoirs are marvelous examples of engineering. The water supply arrangements were made in such a way that the fort could withstand long sieges without water scarcity. The fort houses a museum which has an interesting collection of historic artifacts, arms and ornaments. Jaigarh Fort was opened for public viewing in 1983.
