Amber Fort Overview

Ranked 1 of 281 sightseeing in Jaipur

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.

One of the best thing to do in Jaipur.

It also remains open in night up to 9:15 PM. So you can go in evening to see the Fort in sun light as well as in Moon light. If you are a student carry your student ID with you as there is concession on entry free to students.

Heights of Royalty

While going up the hill on an Elephant, you are excited and thrilled. (Wear loose and comfortable cloths, the air gently brushing your body is so soothing) when inside the fort, you are overwhelm ed by the richness and fabulous interior. When coming. Back-YOU JUST DON'T WANT TO. YOU WANNA STAY THERE AND STAY AND STAY . It is just awesome

Jaipur Amber Fort

Amber Fort pronounced as Amer Fort, is one of the must visit place in Jaipur. Old fort very scenic and whole of Jaipur can be viewed from their. At night the lights inside the entrance of fort gives charm to it.You can easily find cabs to and fro, autos are also available.One way is by climbing the hill which is evident in the pic above and cars are also allowed till some point. So better wear good shoes, avoid heels or other chappals etc.If you are visiting in daytime, don;t forgot to take caps or umbrella with you because Jaipur is warm in summers and you will end up tanned. Not to forget to take water bottles with you.

Awesome feeling into your childhood visiting the Amer Fort. A lot of movie shot here and get lost in the stories of Akbar & his wives ..Not to miss the Elephant Ride :)

Amber Fort

Amber fort is good and requires time to visit. Electronic cars are available to take you up to the gate of the fort. However I would recommend that you go by foot, it's more enjoyable. Also the jaigarh fort is situated adjacent to it, Jail Mahala is also on same road. I recommend you to book hotel on Amer road for convince.

Mandatory Visit

Amer Fort or Amber Fort is one of the main tourist attractions in Jaipur. Located few kilometres away from the city, this place is worth visiting. I am sure you'll fall in love with this place.Pro Tip: Make a point you visit this place twice. Once during Sunrise as you will the entire fort to yourself to explore and second to watch the spectacular light and sound show (English or Hindi)

Enchanting historical and clean place

It is a stunning, huge Fort. A must see with spectacular views, buildings and history. We took a guide who gave us some context to the history which was helpful. Reach early as it was very crowded and becomes very hard to manage. Need at least 2 hours to visit. Parking on top of hill near fort is difficult. Lot of places to see inside. Better take a guide to understand more. Overall good experience and recommend to travellers to visit if already not visited.
