Nahargarh Fort

The main attractions in the entire state of Rajasthan are its forts. You go to any corner of the state and you will come across a fort there. As Rajasthan was mainly a war state and could never stay away from war threats, the rulers in all parts of the state ensured the security of their kingdoms by constructing forts that were impregnable. Like all other parts of the state, Jaipur, the capital city also comes with historical forts that make for major tourist attractions of the present day.

Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur is another example of such forts that are known to be a masterpiece of architecture and were unconquerable by the enemy armies. The fort is located at a distance of 18 kilometers from the city of Jaipur and is nearly 350 feet high from the sea level.

The fort that was earlier known as Sudarshangarh was renamed after the name of an army general Nahar Singh who was killed while fighting for the rulers of Jaipur. It is believed that while this fort was getting constructed, the spirit of Nahar Singh haunted the place and demolished all the construction work on a daily basis. The priest of the royal family tried to talk to the spirit and found that the spirit wanted that along with the palaces of the queens of the state, two palaces should be constructed for two of his widows who were passing through a tough time. Also the spirit wanted that the entire fort should be renamed after him.

Although the fort was constructed for military purposes, the main highlight of the Nahargarh fort in Jaipur are the nine palaces made for the women of the royal family and also for the wives of Nahar Singh.
