Ramgarh, JaipurRamgarh
25 kms. north-east of Jaipur, an ancient site now famous for its huge artificial lake created by constructing a high bund amidst tree-covered hills, where the citizens throng in large numbers for a picnic in the rainy season. The old royal hunting lodge has now been converted into a gateway hotel. But the temple of Jamwa Mata and the ruins of the old fort still remind one of its hoary antiquity when the Kachhawah's first settled here before moving on to Amer.
