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.

"Renovated American Fort enlightens up after sunset" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
I've been visiting the fort since my childhood being a localite in the city of Jaipur. But recently, the government of Rajasthan, India had initiated the tourism for Amer fort in the night hours as well. Knowing this lately, I couldn't afford delaying to adore this beautiful & mesmerising fort. I must say that the fort looks even more beautiful under the effect of colorful artificial lightening under the moon & starry night sky. No doubt, Amer fort is on a way to become the prime & major attraction spot of Jaipur (on the charts)

"Must places to see is amber fort in Jaipur" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Nice place to visit. Its on the hills and so there is a separate jeep drive to that place. Buses and other vehicles not allowed there. We have to walk a lot to cover for sightseeing entire fort. Must place to watch in Jaipur since few other places mentioned top in the list are not so attractive and not well maintained.

"Mesmerising Amber Fort" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Away from the hustle bustle of the pink city is the Mesmerising Amber Fort. A half hour walk would take you to the main area from the taxi drop. A mixture of Rajput and Maugham Art this Fort offers you everything you want in a Fort. The exquisitely built Diwan e aam would mesmerise you. The main attraction is the Diwan e khaas which is made up small mirrors specially imported from Belgium also known as the Sheesh Mahala. Very planned Fort for strategic safety. If you are in Jaipur this is a place you just CANNOT AFFORD TO MISS OUT.

"Amer fort Jaipur" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
The amer fort is very good location for sightseeing ... Many people visit the place, we Can see the various rooms named with different names ... Which really Help us to know More about the place in detail. There is a complete separate place where the ladies use to stay and it was called ladies department. This showed that in olden days the kings gave a lot of attention to the Queens by giving the ladies facilities for their day to day chores ..

"You gotta ride up to the fort on an elephant!"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
It seems incredible that this fantastic fort, with all of its palaces and temples, was abandoned in 1727 when the seat of power moved to Jaipur, and yet the structures and decorations were not vandalized. It seems obvious that such beauty and detailed workmanship inspired awe and reverence and a desire to preserve it even when it was left empty. We are the lucky ones who now benefit from that reverence when we get to visit it and imagine what life must have been like for the people who lived and worked here all those many hundreds of years ago. The notion of riding up to the fort on an elephant initially seemed a bit corny to me, but I must admit that it was a fascinating way to approach the fort and really transported me back in time. Spend a couple of hours just enjoying the spaces and fantastic architecture and surface decorations. Let the hilltop location sink in - imagine you are the master of all you survey!

"Art & tech on sky - Amber Fort"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
A fort on top of hill in the sky, one has to forget the all daily routine to stay in Amber & to stay in remembrance of the Amber quality art & historic Indian technology of monuments & painting. The Ishmael reveals the geometrical & imaginative power of our architects in India. A marvellous art & technology to feel joy. Once, possibly twice all should visit to Amber fort.

"Royal Feel"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jul 27, 2016
The fort and its visit will make you think the type of precautions a king have to take will ruling an empire. Also how much money they must have had. There is a Mira temple, almost one in the world near the fort.
