Sunrise at Nahargarh Fort

Which is the only place in Jaipur which is always teeming with the people around sunrise? The most popular sunrise point in Jaipur is Nahargarh Fort! Nahargarh Fort is best place to see sunrise in Jaipur. Famed Nahargrah sunrise attracts many people.

The road which starts from Kanak Ghati & leads to the fort is busy with the traffic during pre-dawn hours, especially on Sundays. It turns out that this is the only place where one can drive to the vantage point to witness the sunrise. All alternative places to witness & experience  the sunrise in Jaipur involve either walking or trekking.

Being an avid “Sunrise Chaser”, I generally avoid Nahargarh Fort because of the rush and noise created by the youth. Even when I do head here, I usually prefer secluded spots inside the fort. My preferred mode to reach Nahargarh fort is  hiking through the hills and forest which makes it even more worthwhile.

    1. True. Oct -Mar is a great time generally. This period is marked as a tourist season. however this year weather is still warm. In another 20 days or so the temperature should drop.if you haven’t visited India, do visit 🙂

  2. Gorgeous photos, Arv, and I envy you the hike! Walking in the countryside is one of my biggest pleasures, and walking through a forest, as you did, must be wonderful. Sunrise and sunset are very special times and have been associated with many rites and rituals of past civilizations – especially those in which the sun was revered as a god. Thank you for sharing these lovely photos.

    1. Oh! I’m happy to know that you’re a nature lover too! walking through wilderness is amazing, you’re enjoying the nature’s best creation.Long before the modern inventions and electricity came into being, Sun was the only source of light, hence Mankind worshiped Sun and other elements of nature. But now, things are different. we have moved away from nature into our artificial cocoon! Thanks for sharing your thoughts Millie! 🙂

  3. Beautiful sunrise, Arv. The traffic on that one-way route up to watch the sunrise sounds frustrating, but I suppose hiking up there you have to set aside more time. Good on you for making it up to Nahargarh fort, and the sun does look mighty in the sky. Must be a very strong, scorching sun there in Jaipur each day 🙂 Personally I prefer sunsets as I do not like waking up early in the morning. But when I do wake up early, each time the sunrise I see is a very beautiful one 🙂

    1. Mabel, hiking is fun. Yes we have to start early when its still dark so we can catch sunrise on time. Its amazing to watch the transition in the sky.
      Being a tropical city, we get a strong sunlight. Sun during the summers is too intense. The temperature reaches 46-47C.
      Unfortunately, capturing sunset is not possible because I’m busy at work. So sunrise is the only possibility. 🙂
