Amber Fort

Amber Fort

The sprawling Amber Fort is among the finest examples of the life style of the Rajput kings. It is situated around eleven km from Jaipur. The Amber Fort is among the major tourist attractions. This historical fort is positioned at the bottom of the Cheel ka Teela.


Tourists can reach the Amber fort by taking an elephant ride. It is known as the Amer Fort. Construction of the fort started in 1592 and was initiated by Man Singh I. Later on it was accomplished by his successor Jai Singh.


The exterior of the fort differs from its interiors. While the external structure delivers an imposing feel, the interiors seem to be influenced by Hindu and Muslim d├ęcor styles. The walls have paintings that depict many hunting scenes. Apart from this, the exquisite mirror work also exhibits a distinct appeal to the halls. The fort is constructed of white marble along with red sandstone . It is well-integrated by the Maota Lake in the foreground.


Travellers can reach the fort by road or take an elephant ride. A visit to Jaipur is incomplete without paying a visit to the Amber Fort. Another interesting attraction of the fort lies in its maze, a complex system of paths in which it is easy to get lost.
