Jaigarh Fort

Jaigarh Fort

Jaigarh Fort is famous for its world’s largest canon named Jaivan. Tourists from far and wide come here especially to see the canon. Located on the Cheel ka Teela or Hill of Eagles, the fort is one of the famous attractions of Jaipur. Jaigarh Fort is also known as the 'Victory Fort' and is at a distance of 15kms from Jaipur. This Fort is on top of the hill, while Amber Fort is at the bottom. Many people regard the two as one complex however both of them are well connected with well guarded passages.  Jaigarh Fort was constructed for the security of Jaipur and Amber. Due to this fact, one may not find this fort as artistic as other forts and palaces, but it certainly has its own charm.
