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.

"Half day is really short" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
This fort includes a whole city, its walls span an impressive piece of land. 1/2 day was too short for me to explore this vast fortification and its countless picturesque spots. Nice place and good designed by artists, well looking destination, I feel really good.

"Amazing place to be" new review

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Stay away from guides and taxi drivers commission based shopping spree, rest of the place are just amazing. View is really nice, read before you reach there, that helps understand the fort and kings better. Jai Singh (king of Amber) is the same person from whom piece of land to build Taj mahal (or with old Taj structure) was confiscated by Shah Jahan. Though there are several versions, it can only increase the curiosity.

"History rediscovered" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Travel there to see the beauty of Jaipur, the great light and sound show. We can see the Life of the Rajputana Kings and Old city of Jaipur. We visited Amber Fort in July so it was rainy a bit so the atmosphere was really great, but Jaipur can be quite hot so check the temperature before you decide to visit. Take a good guide so that he can help you with the History.

"Great fort well mannered" new review

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
This fort is worth a visit, one can get there by jeep or cab, it will take 2-3 hour to complete this. The fort is very old but nicely maintained, food and drink shops are there, so you can refresh yourself.

"Clean fort but horrible toilets for visitors" new review

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Although the fort is neat and clean, toilets were paid still horrible cleanliness, as we have guide with us, he explained everything in details. Due to rush we could not visit Durga Mandir, to visit the fort there are no restrictions.

"A nice location" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Location was nice, should visit with guide to understand it better. Glass room was one of the main attraction, the view of garden from the fort was nice. For spiritual visitor the temple visit will be an added advantage.

"Wonderful architecture and beauty in true sense" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Amber Fort is considered to be the best amongst the 3 forts (Nahargarh, Jaigarh and Amber) located near each other. The ticket line is long on weekends so please make sure that is the first thing you do once you reach there.

Inside is a palace made up of mirrors which is a beauty in true sense. The fort's architecture is very interesting and you spend hours exploring rooms and galleries across the fort. There are shops towards exit where you can buy souvenirs on your way back.

Between all the exploring, try standing for a while listening to the vendors playing music right at the entrance towards the fort. And oh! Please don't miss the kulfi right at the entry of the fort.
