Nahargarh Fort stands on the edge of the Aravalli Hills, overlooking the pink city of Jaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan. The view of the city as of the fort is striking. Open from 10 AM, not 8:00 am Along with Amer Fort and Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh once formed a well-built shield ring for the city. The fort was initially named Sudarshangarh, but it became known as Nahargarh, which means ‘abode of tigers’. The accepted belief is that Nahar here stands for Nahar Singh Bhomia, whose spirit troubled the place and obstructed creation of the fort. Nahar’s spirit was pacified by structure a temple in his memory within the fort, which thus became known by his name.
