Tourist Attractions - Nahargarh - Rajasthan
Nahagarh Fort is situated 6 kilometers outside the city of Jaipur. Before Jaipur was named the capital of Rajasthan, the city of Amer was the capital of the Rajputs. It was a bustling city with its markets, shops and trade flourished here. The three forts of Nahagrah, Amer and Jaigrah formed the defense of this capital.
Nahagarh is situated along the Aravalli hills. The name Nahagrah means ‘Abode of the Tigers’ and was named after the Rathore, Nahar Singh. During the construction of the fort strange occurrences began to happen. Every morning when the workers returned they found their work done in the previous day was destroyed. Maharaj Jai Singh discovered that there was ghost haunting the land. Then they constructed a temple where the spirit could reside and named the fort after the spirit Nahagrah.
