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.

"Exquisite place" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
The palace itself is wonderful looking and I believe it is only second to Mysore palace. The architectural designs used here have a wide variety, like Buddhist, Mogul, Hindu styles.

The item that are available for viewing are unique and proves the love of art and culture the-then Ranas had.

This is a MUST VISIT place in Jaipur.

Evening time it is very cool. The front look of this Fort is fabulous. We all friend went in the evening so we only could go only till the temple, but after we entered the fort we saw the roof and took pictures with them. The backside look of the city from this Fort is awesome.

"A place to know about great history of Jaipur" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
This place is so peaceful where you can know about royal life of Kings of Jaipur. It is a paisa vasool type of place, you will really enjoy it. There are guides who can tell you about the history and everything about every place. Don't carry heavy bags because you have to walk a lot. So enjoy it and love it.

"Must visit" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Amber FORT is at 20 km from the Jaipur city. For visiting the Amber Fort package tour vehicles are available. If you are going with family (3 to 4 persons) it is better to hire the cab. Cabs are available as per your budget. I have booked the cab from SANSKAR TOURS through telephone. They have charged me at 2200 Rs. For the day for luxury car that is TOYOTA ETIOS.

You can reach upto entrance of the Fort by cab. If you are interested you can opt for the Elephant Safari which is available from the bottom of the Fort. We reached the entrance by cab only as we were not interested in Elephant Safari.

"Excellent Light and Sound show" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
History has always been a boring subject for me in school. Probably because we used to "read" it, today we "felt" history during the famous "Light and Sound show" at Amer Fort. I wished I was born in that era. A must visit for people in Jaipur.

Excellent place. I visited with my family on 21-12-2015. Awesome design of the Fort and also looking Jaipur city from Fort. But sometime disturbance by guides so guide rate must be fixed.

"Overpriced Elephant ride and not that well-maintained"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Elephant ride to reach Amer Fort is a nice experience. It is overpriced but still you will be willing to spend for Elephant ride. You have an option of taking walk to reach the fort. Fort is otherwise not that well-maintained.
