War fortress, Largest canon Jai Van, Weapon Museum

`

To the south stands the castle, Jaigarh. High up on the western crags is Kuntalgarh, built more than a thousand years ago, belonging to the Minas who ruled the region before the Rajput kings. This fort was strategically built to give advantageous height to the archers to target easily & hit badly the enemies. It is said that Raja Man Singh incinerated great treasures here. The fort also houses Jai Van-the largest canon in Asia, said to be fired only once. Located north of Jaipur, Jaigarh Fort is structurally similar to Amber Fort. The other attractions at Fort Jaigarh include three-story water storage tanks, a museum, and breathtaking views of the city.

Though comparatively less frequented than Amber but the fortress of Jaigarh remains a spectacular witness to the military power of the Kachhvaha Rajputs. Its foundation dates back to the 12th Century. When Kachhvahas took these hills from Meenas and became the guardians of their treasure. When Man Singh I built the palace of Amber, Jaigarh kept serving as dungeon, tank, armory and treasure. The current buildings date back to the 18th Century but many modifications were subsequently made.

From the fort of Amber, a 1.5 km stone path leads to the fortress of Jaigarth , which can also be reached via a 5 km road. Rebuilt in 1726 by Sawai Jai Singh, this imposing building, which looks over Amber, is divided into a strictly military part and the private apartments of the maharaja. It offers a superb view of Amber. In the main courtyard, the 18th century Jaivan cannon impresses with its dimensions - 6 meter long with 54 tons of weight. The Jaigarh Fort houses the Museum of Arms, an exhibition about the rulers of Jaipur, the old residential part and the Garden Palace (16th century), built around a shaded garden. The Turret in the fort offers a breathtakingly great view of Jaipur city, Amber Fort and the valley.
