Artist's Description

View across the fort wall at Jaigarh. To the left is the main fort internal residence and buildings, and to the right are the Aravelli Hills and Jaipur City. Obscured in the view is the old city of Amber and the Amber Fort complex which adjoins Jaigarh.

The Jaigarh Fort was built prior to the development of Jaipur and the Aravalli Hills. When Jaipur was created, it assumed great importance, and was restored and equipped to aid the defence of the new city.

In the background are the Aravelli Hills, and just anterior to this lies the old city of Amber, where the Amber Fort is sited, as well as the prefort residences of the ruling family of Jaipur.

Jaigarh Fort adjoins the Amber Fort, and is technically part of that complex, although much less elaborate and much more defence orientated in design and form.
