Factory of Waapons & Cannon -

I would rate it at 2nd position after Amer fort. Nahargarh at 3rd position of the 3 forts of Jaipur. This place has scenic beauty. The fort can be covered in around 1.5 hrs. There is a shop inside the fort where clothing, blankets, bangles, home decor are available from the queens factory. These items are priced very high. You can get exactly the same items from queens factory in shops in City Palace Jaipur at 3/4th price.  Again, similar hand made clothing can be purchased from a shop 'Rajasthan Handicrafts' near Amer fort at half the rate. Eg a saree in Jaigarh fort shop which would be priced at inr 2200 would be available in inr 1200 near Amer fort. Bangles in Jaigarh available at inr 900 would be available in less than inr 500 in other shops.
