Jaigarh Fort Jaipur
Not very far from the Amber Fort, Raja Sawai Jai Singh built the Jaigarh Fort (translated as fort of victory) in 1726. This former royal treasury in Jaipur is remarkably well preserved for the military structures of that period and is regarded as one of the three mightiest forts of India. The fort crowns a cliff and is surrounded by huge fortification walls, which have inside pathways that offer astounding views on all sides. It houses the World's largest cannon on wheel, Jaivan. Its meticulate planning is quite evident in its intricate water supply and storage system. Similar to Amber Fort, in structure, Jaigarh Fort provides some spectacular views of Jaipur and Amber Fort from the Diwa Burj watchtower. There were rumors that there was a large treasure of gold buried in the premises of the fort. Thus, it had to be sealed from the public for seven long years. Now, it has been opened to the public to display its several beautiful palaces, gardens, its granary, an armory which has a stunning collection of arms and weapons and its temples.
