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.

Well maintained, great architecture, provides excellent view of the hills around. History lovers, this is definitely a must visit. The lake below is mesmerizing when viewed from the Amber palace. The Sheesh Mahal is an another great view in the palace.

The Amber Fort is a must visit place. The ancient architecture is very good, the view of the lake and the Sheesh mahal, the old paintings are very nice. The best part is Amber night and sound show in the voice of amitabh bachchan.

Amazing Fort located on the hill top and the view is amazing. Its very big and great for photography. You need at least around 2-3 hr to see the place. You need car or need to hire taxi to reach the top.

"Fort has a charming beauty, hiring a guide is a good option"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
If anyone want to feel the royalty of Indian culture the Amber Fort is a must seeing place and if you are in Jaipur your visit is totally incomplete without visit this wonder. Amber fort is actually the birthplace of Jodha Bai. The famous bollywood pictures like Jodha Akbar, Veer and many more is shooted here so you can easily imagine charm & the beauty of the fort.
It is just 35 min drive from Jaipur Railway Station to the fort depending on the traffic, you can also hire taxi or auto to go there in just under Rs.300. You need a half day if you want to see its complete beauty but it really worth time & money spending sight.
There is nominal fee to see the inner Sheesh mahal and other palaces inside the fort, there is a small lake inside yes, you have to walk a lot to see the beauty (no gain without pain) you can take your camera and click as many pictures as you can.
The esthetic beauty of the gardens and the mahal is awesome, you feel yourself as king when you stand on the roof of the mahal and see the whole city view and yes especially the boundary wall of city over the small rocks will look like Wall of China. You can also see many other historical points in the fort hiring a guide is not a bad idea,
If you feel hungry the CCD and other food points easily calm your hunger and yes you can easily be mesmerized by antique Rajasthani things and fashionable clothes, words are not enough to describe it so go and check out this place as Royal heaven on earth.

This is stunning and the best of the forts we saw. The gardens are lovely and the ascent by elephant is really memorable. Brilliant architecture, amazing experience. Fort is so amazing, while on top, can see whole city, that is beautiful.

The fort is a good place for trekking and the weather here is so nice. The fort can show the royalty of the place and my advice is to go there with friends not with family.
