India, a nation that is flooded with cultural symbolism, history and numerous religious practices, has the proud to have Jaipur in its tourism map as it not only reflects the above mentioned practices but also incorporate rich heritage of craft and art. The Nahargarh Fort, which used to guard the Pink City, now overlooks the growth and prosperity of the modern Jaipur. It has seen various chapters of Jaipur history from its existence to India independence and still today, it silently observes the growth of the city.
The Pink City Beneath!
The city of Jaipur, built by Sawai Jai Singh II, was heavily fortified, since the king took a special interest in the security of the area and due to this he began the construction of Nahargarh Fort in the year 1734. The fort is believed to be named after a Mogul Prince and that’s why in certain parts of Nahargarh, the walls are adorned with beautifully painted frescoes depicting the prowess of the Mogul Empire. Located above the city, it allows for wonderful views of the cityscape.
