  • 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.
