From the edge of the ramparts, you can enjoy a sweeping view over the surround valley, lake, and mountains.

  • Amazing experience. Great architecture design and beautiful historical site. Guides are available to give you a glimpse of every historic spot at the palace. The best time to visit is the evening...

  • Magnificent fort, the building stands high into the Aravali hills north to Jaipur city. Elephants ride is a good attraction here. Loved it.

  • The most beautiful place I have seen in Rajasthan. The architecture and aesthetics are brilliant. Being there gives you a feel of being part of India’s history especially if you hire a guide to walk you through every detail of this huge fort. You are able witness the single palace where so many movies have been shot. The light and sound show at night was the best part! 🎥
  • Mind blown. Wow. The architecture and ingenuity. Early AC and water catchment. Advanced design. Attention to detail. CRAFTSMANSHIP!!! Could spend days exploring. A must visit in Jaipur. Palace added to palace added to palace. 11 km of guard wall and 7 man made lakes to boot. The history! Pro Tips: hire a guide, ride an elephant, don’t buy anything until leaving. Please like my review if it was helpful.
