I wrote about sunrise spots in Jaipur quite some time back on my blog. Thank you for all your support for making it the top-ranking article on Google. Now let us talk about the sunset points. Before we start do follow me on Instagram. Check out this beautiful sunrise at Jalmahal.
Sunset from Nahargarh Fort
Nahargarh Fort is one of the epic places for sunset in Pink City. It is located on the hills above the city with an impressive wall lookout. But, you need to pay an entry fee for experiencing the interior view of the fort. It has easily accessible viewpoints and walls. You can enjoy the panoramic views of the city along with the sunset. You can also visit Madhavendra Bhavan, the restaurant, Nahargarh Fort Museum, and Padao bar inside the fort.
Two different paths are available to reach the Nahargarh Fort. One is through a long winding hill road that starts at Kanak Ghati. You can hire a taxi or auto-rickshaw to a destination. The second route is an old route from an old city area for pedestrians. The path almost takes 15 to 20 minutes for walking. However, the way costs a minimum, and you can see some beautiful views of Jaipur city while walking on this route.
Sunset in the pink city from Amer Fort
I could say Amer Fort is also the most incredible place to enjoy the sunset in Jaipur city. The viewpoint comprises a series of alluring gateways and arches, spectacular ramparts, intelligent architectural towers, and courtyards.
You can take 20 to 25 minutes of travel from Jaipur city via road to reach Amer Fort. I suggest you start earlier to view the sunset point at Amer Fort. You wouldn’t be allowed to walk on the Fort, unlike Nahargarh Fort. In case you like a morning hike check out the Sagar trek near Amer fort. This place is amazing and very near to the Amer fort.

You need not go to another distant place to view the sunset from Amer Fort. Because Jaipur Wall or Amer Wall locates opposite the Amer Fort, it is also the popular sunset spot in Jaipur. This sandstone wall resides along the Aravali Mountains. I call this as Amer fort viewpoint, read more.
I enjoyed the location and beautiful scenery of sunset by climbing the wall. You would also definitely admire the incredible views from its tower points. The picture is from the morning as I was unable to find an evening picture for this point. However, you can see how the Amer fort stands proudly in front of this point. Now imagine the sun coming down right in front of where we are sitting in the image. Watch the vlog for Amer fort viewpoint below and subscribe to my channel.
Jal Mahal is among the best sunset places in Jaipur
Jal Mahal is the must-visit place for sunset in Jaipur because the view is impressive when I observed from the banks of the lake. To explore Jal Mahal’s interior, you should take a boat tour as it locates on the Island within Man Sagar Lake.
You need to travel 4 Km on Amer Road to reach the destination of Jal Mahal. Are you excited to see the best sunset point? Then, you should head on to the Jal Mahal and mesmerize yourself with its magnificent mountain backdrop during sunset. The lake beautified with the migratory birds in addition to the sunset view.

However, you can take darshan of Surya God and get some relief from stress due to personal issues or working conditions. The place helps you to gain positivity and feel pleasure when you visit this.
Panna Meena Ka Kund (Jaipur Stepwell)
Unlike other sunset spots in Jaipur, Jaipur Stepwell or Panna Meena Ka Kund is different from its unique landscapes and backdrops. It comes under the list of best sunset points in Jaipur and nearer to the Amer Fort.
