Nahargarh Fort Night view
I must say the best time to visit Nahargarh fort is at night. The view of Jaipur city from above the hill tops looks amazing. The fort entry is closed by 5 PM but you can enjoy outside the fort and have a look of the city with cold breeze from outside of the fort. Roaming around the fort is allowed till 10 PM so visiting here in the evening will not be a bad idea.
