I would be heading to Jaipur soon. I am wondering if i should post this here or in jaipur thread but decided to post it here.

Where will you go to click a few sunset pictures in Jaipur?

I think the Tiger Fort gives the best perspective. Although, there must be some gem locations lurking within the city.

I snapped the following shot from the balcony of the Narain Niwas Palace:

Nahargarh (Tiger fort) is above Amber & Jaigarh. You need your own vehicle to reach there.

It has very good views from the palace rooftop and ramparts.

It was a palace and royalty used to live here but I was surprised to see the tiny size of living rooms ?
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

Yeah, what he said.

It is quite enchanting in the evening. Swallows swarm around the cliffs and chase insects and bats emerge from recesses of the ruined buidling.

Thank you Delhiwala and Hal.

But why my own vehicle? Can I hire a taxi? I have not been there before so I am definitely going this time. If I leave at 4.00pm from Bapu bazar how much time it would take?

I meant not by Public Transport. Own vehicle could be Hired or your personal vehicle.

If you leave at 4 PM from Bapu Bazar you should be there latest by 4:45 PM.

Thanks Delhiwala. So an Autodriver with an agreement to wait would also do I guess. And going by Jaipur it should be safe if I take the normal precautions.

Ascent is little steep, so I don't know whether an Auto can go upto Nahargarh. But if it can, there should be no problem (You already mentioned normal precautions), just one thing not many people go up to Nahargarh or even Jaigarh also, so it's better to reach early and leave as early as possible.

Oh... I didn't mean to scare you ! The site is guraded but not many fellow tourists around. And the area is vast and kind of deserted.

Let's hope you return with some good pics.

Will keep that in mind, and of course I have very small appetite for risk. So if anything makes me uncomfortable of course I head out. Thank you.

It didn't seem too dangerous to me. I was there in a low tourist time - July- and there were a few groups of people around.

Here's a few photos.

I have been there in August some years ago and there were groups of tourists around. Its very much in the tourist circuit. We spent quite some time there as it was a relief after the overcrowded Amer.

Nothing to worry about.
