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.

"A must when your in Jaipur"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
One must see Amber Fort during day and also at night for the light and sound show. If you like Hindi it is better for the Rich Baritone Voice quality of Amitabh. If your guide insists for visit to handicraft and museum it is avoidable.

"Must have visit"

Seen so many fort but this fort has a special place in my mind. Art work done with the natural colour and all design were made with Hindu and Muslim culture. Fort has the place in unesco world heritage site. Easily one of the most famous landmarks of Jaipur. The tunnels connect it to the Jaigarh fort which is at higher place.

"Must see place"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is one of the best and biggest fort in Jaipur, on the way from Delhi. A huge lake adds to its beauty and magnifies the view at night. You need at least half a day to see the entire fort and different views of the city from here. So wear comfortable shoes and take a good camera to capture the beauty around it.

The Govt. daily bus trip was booked, visited from outside. Nice monumental Heritage place needs to be visited in a lifetime to have a new experience and enjoy the realm of desert life and practices. Place not to be missed.



Great experience.

"A big Fort, good architect"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
If you are visiting Jaipur, you must visit this Fort. The wall has 3 holes which was used by Mughal archers for shooting at different ranges. This is one of the amazing example of architect. This Fort also has a very big TOP which was only fired once to test if it working fine or not.

It was excellent experience that was visiting to Amber Port. I went by car, beautiful locations and views from top of port. By walk is difficult to go with family better go by car.
