“A good place to know and understand history. A scenic view from the top. You have a clear view of the entire city of Jaipur. There is a sunset viewpoint. You can access this leave via a car or you may also walk up this mountain on foot. Remember the walk up is not easy. Yet it's beautiful to try. The structure itself is not great. However, the view of the city from the top is simply amazing and beautiful. ”
