about nahargarh fort

Giving brilliant views of the Man Sagar lake and the vast sprawling city of Jaipur, you must see the beautiful Nahargarh Fort that also houses the compact Madhavendra Bhawan palace. It came into popularity, even more, when portions of the movie Rang De Basanti were shot at this fort.

Legend has it that this fort was named Nahargadh after Nahar Singh Bhomia whose spirit resided in the premises of the fort and obstructed its construction. It was then that a tantrik was called to pacify the spirit. It is said that the spirit demanded the construction of a temple in the fort complex and offered to leave the premises on the condition that the fort is named after him and that's how the Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur came to be so.

Nahargarh Fort was built with the dual purpose of acting as a summer retreat as well as strengthening the defence ring of Jaipur. When in the fort you can take a look at the king's 12 suites that were built for the wives and the children, along with his own majestic suite. The fort also offers some great avenues for taking back picture perfect shots of the Pink City. Within the complex, there are two counters where you can buy drinks and refreshments for yourself.

A wonderfully built monument with classic designs. You can see the whole of jaipur from the top of the fort. This place is one of the best among the places to visit at Jaipur.
