About 11 kilometres away from Jaipur, you will find the town of Amer, where the Amber fort is situated. It was built by Raja Man Singh I and is located upon a hill. Traditional Hindu and Rajput influences on the architecture are apparent. There are spacious courtyards on all four levels red sandstone and marble are the beautiful materials that make up the buildings. The artistry is especially impressive in the two halls known as the Diwan-i-Am and the Diwan-i-Khas.
Moreover, the Mirror Palace named as the Sheesh Mahal (Amer Fort mirror room) features the usage of patterned and geometrically cut and assorted glass. A famous attraction of the Amber Fort is the display of the fresco of the “magic flower”, which is engraved in the marble of one of the supporting pillars of the Sheesh Mahal. You can even try the Amer Fort Elephant ride tour for an even thrilling time.
Although the Sheesh Mahal is a certain distance away from Jaipur it is well worth the visit. Some of the most exquisite displays of Indian architecture can be seen here. The rich and rare construction of the interiors is undoubtedly one of the most astonishing sights in the world.

what a beautiful fort
This is a palace situated in a place called Amber near Jaipur. The palace is beautiful and situated on the mountain. The place is maintained tidy and rest rooms are available for men and women. There are jeeps available near palace which will takes you to top of the mountain. After sunset, there will be Sounds and Lights show displayed here and is the must see attraction. You have to spend minimum an hour here.
Excellent architecture worth visiting if you are in Jaipur for experiencing the extraordinary richness of this beautiful city. Beautiful landscapes all over make this fort visit even more interesting. Conveniently located on the road joining Jaipur and Delhi, this wonderful piece of architecture is beyond any doubt worth visiting. Be a little careful while buying from local vendors, because prices are exorbitant. Overall Amber Palace- Amer is a perfect place to visit
The tour of this historical landmark was very fulfilling. This place had got both a natural beauty and a man made structure beauty. Not yet heavily influenced by tourists, the culture of the people living there is more seen and evident. It's best to choose a guide who can explain the significance of different spots. However, the guides may rush through and not sure the entire palace but a portion of it,, and it shouldn't be rushed.. at least around 2 hours should be spent to properly see the palace and all of its corners that's available to public.
Nice place... Attractive place... People's keep on visiting again and again. Structure is good and history also. No entry ticket here, you have to pay parking charges only which varied from 30 to 50 rupees. Food is also available in and out of the fort. You can enjoy your own food over there. Good time to visit is in winter's.
