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.

"Historical Fort"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
This is one of the historical forts amongst the Jaipur forts. It is being renovated be the government to preserve its history and importance.
If you visit Jaipur, this is a must watch place. Do take a driver along if you don't wish to drive as the driving is a bit steep. There are paid washrooms made.
Some snacks water cold drinks are available. There is a fee to visit this fort. It is under police surveillance all the time.
Wear sun glasses and scarves to protect yourself from direct sunlight. Also do wear sports shoes. Enjoy!

"Huge Palace with some areas restricted for tourist"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
We visited Jaipur in the month of January. This palace is open till 6 PM in the evening and I think we reached at 4 PM. So, there are 2 ways to reach to main area of the Palace. One is by taking stairs which would make an average person good tired once he reaches. And the other option is by cab, so Cabs have an alternative route, which would take 20 mins to half an hours, You can also take your car to that point, but the lanes are very narrow, where you would find difficult to drive yourself.

Place is huge and if you want to cover the complete place, you should have at least 2 -3 hours. You would be required to walk a lot. And there are few areas which are not allowed to visitors.

People who like history would like the place. There would be a lot that can been seen and observed how it could be the place in its time of action. There are details mentioned for areas what the area is about and how it was used in the kingdom. It is a good tourist attraction, you would love the Old Cannon Gun's placed there, people love to get pics with it.

"Amer fort light and sound show is must visit"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Hey, been to this fort for almost after 12-13 yrs but loved it, although many of the corners are closer that is you cannot enter that area like sheesh Mahala. But seen its light and sound show for the first time and I really loved it.
You just need 1 hr to see this fort.
You should go in the morning as you are treated like a Raja Maharaja and there is some Arti in the mandir.

"Royal view and feel"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Awesome locagion on hill and mesmerised view of amer till Jaigarh, each corner of palace is just admirable. Beautiful nakkashi and marble with mirror work is priceless. View from fort is very good as small lake is there in the feet of fort. It takes almost 3/4 hours to enjoy the beuty of amer only then go for Jaigarh by walking. Really amazing experience.

"Charmingly rich historical fort"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It's a class piece of work. One can see the beauty of architect. The building is ancient with all protection measures taken at that time. Its tunnel ... Way out to flee invasions;If at all fort fell.
It's 'shees mahal' is just oauuu!
Sometimes I wonder how can it be made and is it possible to make such a fort in such inaccessible place .?
How much cost would it take ..? I just can't imagine

"Amber fort Jaipur"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is always good to visit Amber fort after every 6-7 years. There are so many renovated things to see. The best is light & sound show. The narration & voice of Amitabh Bacchan with lighting coming from every where produces spellbinding & unforgettable effect. You wish to sit there and enjoy this for the whole of your life. Visit to Jaigarh fort have some dampening effect as the path and surroundings are not clean & are not well maintained. Garbage is littered on every place. But fort itself is good & well maintained. City area visible from fort present s a good view. Overall worth seeing and spending a good relaxing full day.

"The become of the history"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 5, 2017
The beauty of a fort can only tell us who ruled here.

We reached in afternoon. The light became colourful. In the evening the fort became as if the queen started her night journey through dark jungle. The inner portion of the fort is marvellous.

The sheesh Mahal, the bhulbhulaiya are great. After all from this fort, the nature can be observed clearly.

"One of the must visit place in Jaipur"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Dec 31, 2016
Amber Fort is one of the key places to be visited in Jaipur. There are two entry points to this fort. One is Sun Gate through which elephant and people enter walking. The other is Moon gate from which people coming by car enter.

The fort is huge it has got four squares at different levels. Each Square has its own significance. The same is as under:

1) First Square was for Soldiers.

2) Second Square was for the king and its guest it was call Deewan e Khaas.

3) Third Square is for the Queens, there is a sheesh Mahala there and a garden next to it.

4) Fourth Square was for the King. He had 12 Queens and there was a different entrance to enter room of each queen.

There is a temple of Ambe Mata inside the fort which has its own significance in history. Visit the place in order to understand that.

They also conduct light and sound show in the night, showing history of the fort. The show is demonstrated in two language one in English following by other in Hindi. Each show is of around 30 minutes duration.

The Hindi Show is narrated in voice of the great star Amitabh Bachchan and may be that is the reason the cost of tickets is so high. Otherwise I did not find that show as great.
