Golden Triangle

It is 15 kilometres from Jaipur beyond the hills of Jaigarh and is like a watchful sentinel guarding Sawai Jai Singh’s beautiful capital. Much of the original structures are in ruins. From atop a hill, the fort offers a scenic view of the city below.
Nahargarh Fort
Built by Raja Jai Singh II in 1734, Nahargarh Fort also known by Tiger Fort is located at a distance of 6 km northwest to the City Palace of Rajasthan. Termed as watchman of the Jaipur city, Nahargarh Fort is named after the name of a Prince Nahar Singh, whose famous spirited story have become an important part of the Fort.

The name Nahargarh is derived from the cenotaph of a Rathore prince Nahar Singh. Legend has it that Nahar Singh's ghost reigned supreme on the site and it would not allow the construction of the fort. The ghost would demolish whatever was build. Sawai Jai Singh then ordered tantriks to exorcise the ghost who relented on the condition that the fort be named after him. A motorable road leads to the top of this fort. the more adventurous tourists can climb their way to the top.

The Nahargarh fort reigns the wide skyline during the day and frames a mesmerizing site when floodlit at night. Maharajah Sawai Madho Singh, always wanted to have a pleasure retreat, beside his popular duck shooting arena at Jal Mahal. So in 1880, he bade the eminent Bengali architect Vidyadhar Bhattacharya to design a magnificent monsoon haven for his nine maharanis, and today it stands- with its past legends and present glory- as a splendid example of love in the hearts of people.

The Madhavendra Bhawan, has a cluster of 12 identical double story suits for queens and at the acme is a regal suit for the king himself. The rooms are linked by voluminous interspersed corridors and rectangular windows displaying some delicate frescoes; western-styled toilets and designed kitchen hearths take one's memories to the rustic countrysides of England. Think about the clandestine hide and seek games that were being played across these courtyards on full-moon nights, queens strolling in their respective balconies, waiting for the same king to come.

Madhavendra Bhavan
Built by Sawai Ram Singh II, Madhavendra Bhavan is constructed in the form of two-stoyered apartments with each room linked to the courtyards.
