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.

"Must visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Immense, Fabulous, Grand, speaks of the strength of Rajput rulers which ruled for tens of generations from this ancient fort. Keep a lot of time to see & understand the life & story intertwined with the development of this fort. Start in the morning, Elephant ride can be avoided, as the sensible animal seems to have a lot of trouble taking you up the ramparts. A sound & light show in the evening is a must see.

"A fort which you should not miss!"

  • 7.0/7

Guide is a must. It will help you to understand everything. One will wonder how the Maharajas used to think and had luxury in a way. It is very beautiful. Need around 3 hrs. Would be better if you visit during sunset so you can have pleasant view of both day and night with lightings. I missed it.

"A must visit place for an outsider"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
This is one of the top most visited place in Jaipur. I was thinking, why, till the time I went there and enjoyed the scenic view from my own eyes. Its located at the top of a mountain and gives a very beautiful view of all over. Can go by own vehicle to the entry point or can hire a gype to the gate. If interested, can take an elephant ride to the gate.

"Excellent place to visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
If you are visiting Jaipur than don't forget to visit here. Its really amazing heritage fort. I really liked it more than other heritage sites and fort in Jaipur. You can get to see everything here. Nominal charges of around 100 bucks.

My suggestion always take a govt approved guide here as they will charge you 200 bucks but they will manage it within 150 bucks only.

This is a big property so always take out 2-3 hours. Guide will help you to explore the fort like raja & rani dining area. Their bedroom and many other things.

Thanks.

Good fort to visit. But too much too walk up. So many shootings have been done at that point of the fort. Very narrow lane to get up the fort. Good scenes to click pictures for memories.

Must visit!!!!

"Awesome place for historical people"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is the place where we can imagine the people who lived there before 100 or 1000 years and how they use to live over there with so much of artifacts which is still found there and the tourists who visit must visit this place and it is worth visiting.

"Small fort on hill top"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
This is the first place we visited during our tour to Jaipur.

Located outside the main city area, it is located on a small hill and elephant rides are available from base but not worthy its just a few 100 meters (or hardly a 1 km). The garden area in base and a small area built between waters add in the scenic beauty.

In fort there is a kali mata temple and an ample ground space, some space is under restricted zone which you can't visit.

There is an IRCTC restaurant in the fort, which is highly expensive.

Anyone who have keen interest in forts, must visit Amber Fort. It's 10 mins approx. From Jal mahal. The fort is widely spread and gives an awesome view from top. But the main concern is you have to walk a lot to reach its peak. If you want to avoid the walk, you need to reach quick in the morning to book an elephant ride which will walk you through the entire fort.
