Originally stated around 1600, the fort wasn’t fully completed for over 150 years. It is very large and imposing. It is situated on a ridge overlooking the town of Jaipur and can easily bee seen from the town.. It takes a while to get there. It’s actually around 11 kilometers from Jaipur up twisty mountain roads. They tell me Bus #5 can take people all the way to the fort for 7 rupees, about 15 cents. The city tour that I took takes in Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort and Nahargarh Fort and only costs 250 rupees, about $5. The fort is not just a fort, it served as one of the king’s palaces as well. I would say that all of the 3 forts around Jaipur should be seen. Admission is $1.
