Home >> RAJASTHAN FORTS & PALACES >> NAHARGARH FORT JAIPUR

INTRODUCTION
Jaipur is one of the most popular destinations on a tourist's itinerary. One of the most important landmarks in Jaipur is the Nahargarh Fort. Nahargarh Fort was strategically important and was built as a means of bolstering the defense of Amer. It was also known as the Tiger Fort.

LEGEND
According to local legend the fort was christened Nahargarh after a deceased prince Nahar Singh. Apparently the spirit of Nahar Singh haunted the construction site and would not allow workers and artisans to go on with their work. Prayers were chanted, rituals performed and tantrik traditions observed till the spirit of the dead prince made an appearance and declared that the fort would have to be named after him.

DESCRIPTION

The Nahargarh fort of Jaipur, Rajasthan looks the best at night, when it is brightly lit. One of the structures worth visiting in the fort is the Madhavendra Bhawan. It was built by Sawai Ram Singh II and has a head suit for the king and 12 identical suits for his queens. Linking all the rooms are that corridors, still retaining some delicate frescos, toilets and kitchen hearths. The members of the royal family used this bhavan as an excursion place in the summertime. Nahargarh fort was the first fort to be built by the kings of Jaipur. It was also used as the personal treasury once. However, much of the fort is now lying in ruins due to sheer neglect. An exception being the additions made by Sawai Ram Singh II and Sawai Madho Singh II in the 19th century, which are still in a good condition.

The Nahargarh Fort or the Tiger Fort overlooks the picturesque Man Sagar Lake. A perfectly carved marble duck blind was constructed in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake that used by the Maharajas for hunting purposes.
