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.

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" new review

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" new review

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 2 weeks 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.

The fort was at the back of Jaigarh fort, the fort has a mahal and the living rooms is in a great manner. This fort is very big and has a great attraction. The upper side to the fort has temple of Sheela Mata, I recommend to take a elephant ride.

"The fort is surrounded with water"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The fort is worth a visit, the Sheesh Mahal is amazing to see and also the fort is surrounded by the water which makes it more attractive. Have to walk to enjoy the scenes so wear comfortable footwear or sport shoes.

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Every person who come to Jaipur, must visit this place. It is filled with history, art, etc and the night show is awesome with lightning on old walls. You must take a guide with you and yeah you walk a little bit as it is on a hill. The look, the sandal farming is so good.

"Take a guide"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 2 months 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.
