All About Nahargarh Fort Sunrise Experience

Life is all about experiences. But there are some exceptions too. In a hindsight, you would rather not experience certain things because it turns out to be another way around. If you have followed my blog you would have read a couple of post on sunrises and sunsets in Jaipur. Being a skywatcher and nature lover, I feel every sunset and sunrise is unique. In one of my blog on the most popular sunrise points in Jaipur, I have mentioned that even though Nahargarh Sunrise point is extremely popular, I prefer giving it a miss.

Let me share my experience of watching a sunrise at Nahargarh Fort. It was one of a crisp Sunday morning of February when I started from Kanak Ghati at 5.30 AM. Despite being dark there were a couple of morning walkers on this road which ends at Nahargarh Fort. Vehicular traffic was quite low but I knew in a half hour this road will be buzzing with speeding cars and motorcycles, all heading towards Nahargarh Fort. By the time I reached the sunrise point, it was 5.50 AM. Sharing the sky and the view of the city in this picture.


I found young lads sitting here waiting for the sunrise with loud music playing through the portable speaker.


In a couple of minutes, a large crowd congregated at the sunrise point. Howling, shouting, loud music playing from the car is all that I experienced in this time-frame. This is a picture I shot of Nahargarh Fort sunrise pointΒ at 6.00 AM and decided to return back.


I’m sure everyone has their own idea of watching & enjoying a sunrise but certainly, this is not mine.


For me, sunrise is a spiritual experience. And this alone is a motivation for me to get up so early on weekends. I have been lucky enough to find new and amazing sunrise points in Jaipur which guarantees quietude.

I’m sharing a couple of sunrise pictures from various locations in and around Jaipur. In my opinion, Nahargarh Fort is not the best sunrise point in Jaipur; It certainly is the most popular one.




A couple of them are a great place for doing yoga because of tranquility and stunning views. On the contrary, Nahargarh Fort guarantees a prolific sunrise experience. Life is about making choices and I’m sure why I’m not heading for Nahargarh Fort sunrise.

    1. Cornelia, since you have visited India, you are well aware of the fact that finding solitude in public areas is so difficult unless you choose really offbeat places. That’s what most westerners notice when they arrive in India. People, noise, and smell… sensory explosion!
