Nahargarh Fort Stepwell

Nahargarh Fort is one of three forts at Jaipur, Amber Fort and Jaigarh Fort, being the other two. Nahargarh means an “abode of tigers”. Nahargarh Fort was built in 1734 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of the city of Jaipur. The fort and stepwell at Nahargarh were built as a defense fort, which was never used. This stepwell design is unique one in that there’s no symmetry in kind of steps cut out of the hillside to collect water in.

Jaigarh Fort and Amber Fort

Three strong finials on the Amber Fort’s spire, viewed with Jaigrah Fort and its high flying flag at the back.

This shot is special as it captures two fort’s in a single frame. The Jaigarh Fort is built on the top of the mountain called Hill of Eagles (Cheel ka Teela) to protect The Amber Fort and Palace, which is built about 400m below on a same Aravali range of hills.

I have titled my this click as ‘Jai Amber‘ as a portmanteau word picking Jai from Jaigarh Fort and Amber from Amber Fort.
