Amber Fort was very good to see, if someone likes historical monuments. It was fantastically built. It was one of the ancient monuments of which the government keeps good maintenance. I recommend visiting there.

"A epic of grandeur and royalty."

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Amber Fort is a marvelous fusion of Hindu and Mughal architecture. Place is filled with historical value. Elephant ride are available at reasonable price for 15 minutes , so the best option is to take a audio tour costing Rs 100/-. words can't explain it you must visit to know the Mughal era.

A very good trip. We hired a guide for better knowledge about the fort. In the fort, we saw 'topes' which were being used by kings. The view of the city from this place was splendid.

Amber Fort should be visited if you have not yet visited. It's an attraction, worth visiting once, for its aesthetic ambiance. This red sandstone and marble structure has awesome entrance and courtyards.

It is one of the destinations for which Jaipur is known. Such a nice place (palace) it is, that people specially visit Jaipur to see this fort. Elephant safari is the most fancied activity of this tourist attraction.

"A historic and heritage site"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
It's a historic and heritage site. The location is great, big parking place on the road side, you have to walk to the palace. But it's a nice walk and there's always rush of people visiting this place. There are many hawkers selling Rajasthani paintings on the way to palace. It's a nice palace, and a good subject for photography. We also had an elephant ride there. Kids just loved this place.

This is one of the most wonderful forts @ Jaipur. The old fort is wonderfully decorated. The saffron garden is a wonderful sight. Sheesh mahal inside the fort is very good piece of work.

This fort is the best monument to see in Jaipur. I liked this place a lot. I had a great time there with my family. You get to learn a lot about history and about the Rajputs.

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.
