The Royal Rajasthan
 

Amber Fort, Jaipur

 

Amber Fort, JaipurAmber Fort was built by Raja Man Singh of the Kachhwaha clan of Rajputs. A mere 11 km from Jaipur, Amber used to be the capital of the Jaipur estate, until it was shifted to Jaipur city.

The Amber Fort is a sprawling complex on top of a hill, with numerous palaces, gardens, temples and other structures inside. It is a fine example of Rajput architecture. The Amber Fort overlooks the Maotha Lake and is reflected beautifully in its calm waters. An elephant ride is the most enjoyable way of reaching the hill top to access the Fort.

Knowledgeable guides are available to tell you about the stories linked to the Fort's history. Even exploring the rambling monument on your own is a wonderful experience. The Amber Fort is connected to Jaigarh Fort (the Victory Fort) just next to it through a series of tunnels. Inside the Amber Fort, the must visit rooms are the Diwan-e-Aam or the Hall of Public Audience that has forty pillars, Shitla Mata temple dedicated to Shitla Mata (a manifestation of Goddess Kali), Ganesh Pol (a beautiful painted Gate dedicated to Lord Ganesha), Diwan-e-Khas or the Hall of Private Audience that is decorated with beautiful mirror work and glass murals of Radha and Krishna, besides the Jai Mandir and Jas Mandir.

Situated on the Delhi Jaipur highway, Amber Fort is a short taxi ride away. Rickshaws and local buses ply. The Fort is open on all days except the festival of Holi. There is an entry fee and charges for photography equipment.
