Jaigarh Fort

There are three forts in Jaipur: Amber Fort, Jaigarh and Narhargarh. Each fort had there own special use. Amber Fort was used not only as a defence system from intruders but also served as main residence for the Kachawas rulers. Jaigarh was mainly used as a defence system against invaders and also held the famous Kachawas treasury. Naharagarh was mostly used as a residence by the Kachawas rulers, especially by the Maharanis during the hot summer months. Naharagarh is located on a mountain top behind the City Palace of Jaipur. It is said that there was a secret passage between the Naharagarh and the City Palace so in case of attacks the maharaja and the royal family could escape to the fort.
