  • Amazing place for weekend gateway near Jaipur. Pleasant view and stunning fort view gives you grace. The fort is well managed and very clean. The fort is very beautiful and you will enjoy the facts and history of it. The entry to fort is just 50rs. which is very nominal. You can also enjoy good in clean breeze at the fort.
  • Top most place, breathtaking experience. Natural views are just jaw dropping. City looks like small pieces of grains placed in different color. The pink city looks really pink from the top and this place is nearly killer in terms of views. Got some awesome photograph for myself. Must visit!
