Jaipur, often called "The pink city" is the capital of the Indian State of Rajasthan. Jaipur is renowned for its fascinating monuments and colourful markets, gorgeous hand looms and wonderful laid out gardens. The people are cheerful and friendly. Jaipur along with Delhi and Agra form the Golden Triangle of Indian Tourism. Searching for a place to stay is not a difficult task as you can pick and choose from several lodging options depending on your budget. The hotel choices range from heritage properties and 5-star heritage hotels in mid-rung and budget hotels Jaipur is one of the ideal places to try out some authentic Rajasthani cuisines like Dal Batti Churma, Mawa kachori, and Ghewar.

The Jai Garh (Meaning the seat of Victory) Fort was primarily built to protect the Amber Fort. Keeping this in mind the Fort is connected with Amber fort through Subterranean Passages. It is renowned for the Jai Vaana, perhaps the largest Cannon on Wheels in the world, and various collectibles along with impressive weaponry. Built by Mahraja Jai Singh II around 3 centuries ago, the history of this fort has many legends and folklores spun around it that will be unfolded later in this article. It might be interesting to know that in medieval period Jaigadh was known as Amber*. During its golden days, the fort also acted as a prominent cannon foundry using various complex technologies for cannon production such as melting the iron, molding, hollowing out the cannon barrels etc. Producing an immense heat of above 2000 Fahrenheit is one among many different such complexities during the process of cannon production. Well, the very mention of this immense temperature has invited pearls of sweat on my whole body! So better to move ahead in some "Cold" mentions of the fort: What about Water! A legend says that the Jaivana was used only once and that was just a test. So mighty is the Cannon that the cannonball actually exploded several miles from Jaigadh and that explosion resulted in a massive hollow in the ground (like a pond) that is still there till date.

Jai Vana is the most impressive feature of the Fort. Ironically this mighty looking 6.15m long and 50 tones heavy cannon was never used in any battle. The cannon are also a fine example of art with several decorations on it and it can move up to 360 degree thanks to the precisely positioned four wheels. A legend says that more than 20 elephants were employed to climb these cannon up the fort at its present position.  Let me go bear and see. Well here is the description that I will read and then paraphrase to avoid the embarrassment of plagiarism. Ok, done! This is the cannonball that was made to use with Jai Vaana.
