Nahargarh Fort, Jaipur
Nahargarh fort, towering above the capital of Rajasthan, is the talk of the town. It is located at the edge of the Aravalli Hills, built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur, in 1734, to support the security of Amber, and was also used as an excursion and recreation place by the royal family members.
An anthem for the youngsters then, the song, ‘Masti ki Pathshala’ of the bollywood movie ‘Rang De Basanti’ was shot here. One of the most favourite picnic spots for Jaipurites, the view from up above here is breath-taking. The name means “Abode of Tigers”, but Nahar stands here for Nahar Singh Bhomia whose spirit is said to haunt the place and was calmed by making a temple in his memory inside the fort.
Your visit to the Pink City is incomplete if this place is not in your To-visit list. The best time to visit this place is winters or monsoon season as Jaipur gets extremely hot in summer season and the average temperature remains as 45 degrees. Or if you still end up coming in summers then do not worry, just skip the afternoon time.
