Desciption

Giving a proper Bird-eye view, Nahargarh fort overlooks the stunning ‘Pink City’ of Rajasthan. Originally named as Sudarshangarh Fort, changed to Nahargarh, which means ‘abode of tigers’. There is a storyline behind the changing of name of the fort. It is believed that Nahar here stands for Nahar Singh Bhomia, a Rathore ruler, whose spirit haunted the place and hindered the construction of the fort. So there was a temple built in the fort after his name for pacification of the place and eventually the name of the Fort was changed after his name. 

Nahargarh Fort ,built in 1734, is noted for its stretched out divider which connects it to the Jaigarh Fort. The fort was built keeping in mind the Indo-European architectural style, which is the reason it It reflects the extraordinary combination of Indian and European design styles.
