Jaigarh

Deepika Vaidya
Just a 10 minutes rickshaw ride away Jaigarh fort is situated on the Cheel ka Teela [eagles hill] of the Aravali range. This fort primarily overlooks the Amer fort and the Maota lake and was built to protect the Amer fort by Jai Singh II in the year 1726. The jaigarh fort is also connected to the Amer fort via a subterranean passage way. This was used for the protection of the royal family during wars.
