About Nahargarh Fort, Jaipur

Nahargarh Fort is perched on the edges of the Aravalli range, overlooking the pink city of Jaipur. Originally named Sudarshangarh, it became known as Nahargarh, meaning 'abode of tigers' with Nahar standing for Nahar Singh Bhomia, whose spirit haunted the place and obstructed construction of the fort. Nahar's spirit was pacified by building a temple in his memory within the fort, which thus became known by his name. Another attraction in the fort is the 'Madhavendra Bhawan' built by Sawai Madho Singh, a two-storey building which has suites for the king and his twelve queens. Divided into nine similar apartments with each having a lobby, bedrooms, toilets, kitchen and store. Other structures inside the palace include Diwan-I-Aam, an open air enclosure where the king met the common men and listened to their problems and complaints.] Built mainly in 1734 by Maharaja Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur, the fort was constructed as a place of retreat on the summit of the ridge above the city.
