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.

"Best palace in Jaipur" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
The best fort in Jaipur, please dont waste time in visiting Hawa Mahal, Jal Mahal and the other sites. I found Amber Fort and the Jantar Mantar to be worth visiting. The palace looks stunning.

"Sneak peek into architectural excellence of Royal Rajasthan." new review

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Amber is situated right in the beginning of the city Jaipur. Got few well known hotel with the view of the fort if you wish to stay away from the hustle bustle of the city. The parking area is allotted a bit away from the entrance of the fort. You can either take a nice walk to the fort through not so tiring stairs or you can take a jeep that drives you to the fort at a nominal charge. The Entrance ticket is 25 bucks. Please get only a government approved guide if you wish some one to take you through this beauty with some amazing stories(recommended if you are with a group). Else you can take a Audio guide( Available in all languages) that is available at the entrance at 100 bucks per person. You can also take a royal elephant ride from the main entrance to the fort entrance though I find the charges for it a bit too high but think is worth a royal experience. Its got a small museum shops at the exit of the fort and paid clean washrooms and most of all an excellent view from the windows of the fort of the lake and the gardens below.

You can spend a whole day, lot of things are there to watch. Mainly glass work of Rani Kuthi is very nice. Fort surrounding the hills looks like a China Mall.

"Seriously, this is an amazing place to visit" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Jaipur, as the name suggests has a long history with it of which this fort is the perfect example. Including all kinds of glimpses of the lifestyles of our ancient rulers, this fort also hides a secret passage under it which is open to visit. If you are attracted even a bit to these monuments then this should be your next destination on the list.

"This will be one of your favourite"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Amer Fort is situated in Jaipur which is capital of Rajasthan. In Jaipur there is so many historical buildings but Amer Kila will become your favourite when you see the fort. A broad road goes up to the top of fort. Here you will see all the culture what was at that time. Must visit this place.
