Heritage Water Walk at Nahargarh Fort Jaipur

Take a guided water walk and time travel into the past. The tale of two brothers separated centuries apart come together to tell the story of the sacred water of Rajasthan.

The Story of Nahargarh Water harvesting structures is also the story of ingenuity of Rajasthan Society to innovate for all its needs.

Built In 1734 years ago during the reign of Sawai Jai Singh (1698-1740), the extensive water systems of Nahargarh is one of the most significant features of the fort, which somehow does not receive attention that it deserves. The Catchment area of water for Nahargarh Extends to about 6 kms surrounding the fort.

A Network of six closed catchments connect through small canals and aqueducts and drains are laid in and outside the fort. Small Canals bring rainwater from the higher reaches of the hills. The Bed of these canals is designed in such a way that it is on a gradient and also at the same time has an undulating course. Unlike, Water harvesting system of Fort Jaigarh, Nahargarh Has two large step wells (Baoli) and a smaller step well called as “Kund”. The stepwells receive water from the catchment in the surrounding hills while, the Kund receives rainwater harvested from the fort complex.
