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.

"Take a guide" new review

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 2 days ago
Amber fort is a main view of Jaipur. Amer Fort is known for its artistic style of Hindu elements. Take a Guides who love to speculate stories - an official, uniform version of the stories would be more helpful. Elephant ride is recommended. Visit time is after mid day till evening.

From top of the fort the panoramic view of the old city can be seen. Which creates a beautiful scenario. Fort is situated between the hills which gives it a wonderful view as well as helped in security of the city. One must visit it.

"Feel like time has stood still" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
This Fort is at the top of a hill and gives a great view of the city. There is a large courtyard surrounded by the huge walls which gives you a feeling of time gone by. The fort has a temple of Goddess Durga which is where the erstwhile rulers used to pray and is hugely revered by the locals. The steps to the fort has a lot of artisans selling the local wares but are not very pesky. You can take your car till very near to the entrance. Please carry a hat as during summer.
