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.

"Amber fort Jaipur" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
It is always good to visit Amber fort after every 6-7 years. There are so many renovated things to see. The best is light & sound show. The narration & voice of Amitabh Bacchan with lighting coming from every where produces spellbinding & unforgettable effect. You wish to sit there and enjoy this for the whole of your life. Visit to Jaigarh fort have some dampening effect as the path and surroundings are not clean & are not well maintained. Garbage is littered on every place. But fort itself is good & well maintained. City area visible from fort present s a good view. Overall worth seeing and spending a good relaxing full day.

It was good fort. It has a three layer where you can see all other forts and can take pictures. There are 1000 stepping stones which we can easily climb. Food and water is available on top of fort. Guide is available to get information about fort. Designs on wall are very unique.

"The become of the history"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The beauty of a fort can only tell us who ruled here.

We reached in afternoon. The light became colourful. In the evening the fort became as if the queen started her night journey through dark jungle. The inner portion of the fort is marvellous.

The sheesh Mahal, the bhulbhulaiya are great. After all from this fort, the nature can be observed clearly.

"One of the must visit place in Jaipur"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Amber Fort is one of the key places to be visited in Jaipur. There are two entry points to this fort. One is Sun Gate through which elephant and people enter walking. The other is Moon gate from which people coming by car enter.

The fort is huge it has got four squares at different levels. Each Square has its own significance. The same is as under:

1) First Square was for Soldiers.

2) Second Square was for the king and its guest it was call Deewan e Khaas.

3) Third Square is for the Queens, there is a sheesh Mahala there and a garden next to it.

4) Fourth Square was for the King. He had 12 Queens and there was a different entrance to enter room of each queen.

There is a temple of Ambe Mata inside the fort which has its own significance in history. Visit the place in order to understand that.

They also conduct light and sound show in the night, showing history of the fort. The show is demonstrated in two language one in English following by other in Hindi. Each show is of around 30 minutes duration.

The Hindi Show is narrated in voice of the great star Amitabh Bachchan and may be that is the reason the cost of tickets is so high. Otherwise I did not find that show as great.

Very old fort but architecture of the fort is fabulous attractive like sismahal, dewin I am, dawin I khash and also living room of king and queen is very good. But location of the fort is hilltop. Old age person will not reach easily. Jeep available but very costly for a person

"Must visit while in Jaipur"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
A perfect place to visit for the History and Architecture lovers. I can have a Royal entry on an Elephant ride. Next have a fascinating your of the Royal enchanting Halls, Gardens, Art and Culture, and much more which can't be explained in words. The most important part is the light and sound show after sunset in the Voice of Mr Bachchan, very remarkable. Had a great time and will be always cherished in memories.

Amber Fort gives you a glimpse of glorious past of Jaipur royalty. Intricate carvings on pillars and walls of various buildings attract your attention. Lifestyle of royals is very well portrayed in Amber Fort.
Amber Fort is a must for every visitor interested in culture of Rajasthan.

"Renovated American Fort enlightens up after sunset"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months 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"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months 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.
