Nahargarh Fort Jaipur
Cradled in the Nahargarh Hills, the Nahargarh Fort of Jaipur was built by Sawai Raja Jai Singh in 1734. Jaipur was the capital of Raja Jai Singh II and Nahargarh was a fitting standguard, rightly called the Tiger Fort. It was the first of the three forts built by the rulers of Jaipur. Though in ruins, there are lovely buildings that the fort houses, added by Sawai Ram Singh II and Sawai Madho Singh II in the 19th century, which are well preserved. It provides some breathtaking views of the Man Sagar Lake and the city below. Interesting folklores ring in every nook and corner of the fort. A palatial duck blind stands gracefully in the midst of the lake, which once lured the shooting parties of the royal family. It has also served as a personal treasury for years and a royal retreat for the queens.
