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.

"Good wether and nice place" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
The Amer Fort, situated in Amber, 11 kilometers from Jaipur, is one of the most famous forts of Rajasthan. Amer, originally, was the capital of the state before Jaipur. It is an old fort, built in 1592 by Raja Man Singh. This fort is also very popularly known as the Amer Palace. The Amer Fort was built in red sandstone and marble and the Maotha Lake adds a certain charm to the entire Fort. Though the fort is quite old and may even look so from the outside, it is beautiful on the inside and boasts of various buildings of prominence like the 'Diwan-i-Aam', the 'Sheesh Mahal' and even the 'Sukh Mahal'. The Amer Fort has influences of both Hindu and Muslim architecture. This fort also has the 'Shila Devi' Temple and the 'Ganesh Pol' which is a gate that leads to the private palaces of the kings. The Amer Fort has many pavilions and halls of great interest and other popular attractions.

"Must visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Immense, Fabulous, Grand, speaks of the strength of Rajput rulers which ruled for tens of generations from this ancient fort. Keep a lot of time to see & understand the life & story intertwined with the development of this fort. Start in the morning, Elephant ride can be avoided, as the sensible animal seems to have a lot of trouble taking you up the ramparts. A sound & light show in the evening is a must see.

"A fort which you should not miss!"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Guide is a must. It will help you to understand everything. One will wonder how the Maharajas used to think and had luxury in a way. It is very beautiful. Need around 3 hrs. Would be better if you visit during sunset so you can have pleasant view of both day and night with lightings. I missed it.

"A must visit place for an outsider"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
This is one of the top most visited place in Jaipur. I was thinking, why, till the time I went there and enjoyed the scenic view from my own eyes. Its located at the top of a mountain and gives a very beautiful view of all over. Can go by own vehicle to the entry point or can hire a gype to the gate. If interested, can take an elephant ride to the gate.

"Excellent place to visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
If you are visiting Jaipur than don't forget to visit here. Its really amazing heritage fort. I really liked it more than other heritage sites and fort in Jaipur. You can get to see everything here. Nominal charges of around 100 bucks.

My suggestion always take a govt approved guide here as they will charge you 200 bucks but they will manage it within 150 bucks only.

This is a big property so always take out 2-3 hours. Guide will help you to explore the fort like raja & rani dining area. Their bedroom and many other things.

Thanks.

Good fort to visit. But too much too walk up. So many shootings have been done at that point of the fort. Very narrow lane to get up the fort. Good scenes to click pictures for memories.

Must visit!!!!
