Amer was once known as Dhundar and was ruled by the Kachhwahas from the 11th to the 16th century, until the capital was moved from here to Jaipur. Raja Man Singh built this fort in 1592 AD and Raja Jai Sigh I expanded and renovated it later. While many such old structures have been either destroyed or replaced by other things, this fort has stood against all the tests of time and invasions.
NAHARGARH FORT :
After covering the famous Amer fort,i headed towards the other famous fort of the pink city-jaipur and it was none other than Nahargarh Fort.
Built in 1734 and extended in 1868, Nahargarh fort overlooks the city from a sheer ridge to the north. The story goes that the fort was named after Nahar Singh, a dead prince whose restless spirit was disrupting construction.
Whatever was built in the day crumbled in the night. The prince agreed to leave on condition that the fort was named for him. The views are glorious and there’s a restaurant that’s perfect for a beer.
