Amber Fort, also known as Amber Palace, is said to have played a key role in the history of Medieval India. This fort depicts true royal lifestyle of the Rajputs, who are known for their decadent, radical and volatile behaviour. The Amber Palace is a perfect fusion of Hindu and Muslim architecture.

The Amber Fort was constructed during the 15th century by Raja Man Singh, who was the renowned Rajput commander in the army of Mughal ruler Akbar. It also has large gateways, stairways, beautiful palaces, courts and pillared pavilions. The fort is also known for Sheesh Mahal, Jas Mandir, Jali Screens and other important temples.

Mughal style gardens, called Dil-e-Aaram and Diwan-e-Aam, are also present inside the Amber Fort. This fort can be reached on elephants that are available from the main city of Jaipur. Tourists can also travel to this beautiful Rajput Fort through auto rickshaws and taxis.

"This will be one of your favourite" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Amer Fort is situated in Jaipur which is capital of Rajasthan. In Jaipur there is so many historical buildings but Amer Kila will become your favourite when you see the fort. A broad road goes up to the top of fort. Here you will see all the culture what was at that time. Must visit this place.

"Grand and Impressive" new review

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
The most impressive and visited fort in Jaipur, the Amber Fort will weave to you the life and times of the Rajputs kings and queens, A very beautiful view of the fort will greet you as you approach it across the garden and fountains with the caravan of elephants gradually climbing the ramparts of the fort.

You could board one of the elephants or drive up to the fort. The fort inside is without much decorations but it has a very intriguing complex of rooms with wonderful history. Roam around this piece of history and view some beautiful scene across one of its many jharokhas.

Feel like a princess or prince and dream like a queen or king while you are here. Don't miss the incredible light and sound in the evening just across outside the fort. Book your tickets and come back view the fort's fascinating history. You could also find some good bargains in one of the shops selling traditional artefacts and garments which are sometimes cheaper than any outside emporium.

"A grand fort telling the tale of Jaipur rulers"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
A grand fort that stands on the top of the hill overlooking Jaipur. The king of Jaipur used this fort as their residence for 700 years before moving to Jaipur city palace. It has great history attached to it and the light and sound show in the evening makes it awesome fort to visit. A must place to visit if you are visiting Jaipur.

Amber Fort can be reached by Taxi, there is fee for entry, camera etc. You have to walk a lot to visit every corner of the Fort and its is clean. Either take a tourist guide or read boards containing info about the fort, you will be surprised.

"A great part of history"

  • Posted 2 months ago
A great part of history, it's a must visit place when one travels Jaipur. Although I personally would recommend that Jaipur should be visited in winter season only because summer is intolerable.

"Majestic fort built without the use of machines"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The architecture of this place is brilliant and it is said that it was built by Raja Man Singh for his 7 queens. It must have been very difficult for the builders to build it without the help of any machines. The day we visited it was drizzling, so the weather was perfect. From the top of the fort you get a view of entire Jaipur. Also there is Bawri there where the Movie Rang De Basanti was shot and has become a tourist spot. It's a must visit place if you are in Jaipur.
