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.

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.

  • This is a historically rich site. The architecture represents the medieval perspective frozen in time. A must visit if you are in Jaipur. If this place is awesome during the day you it's surreal at night. This is open at night and the tickets are four times the cost for daytime visits (daytime charges for Indians-Rs 25, night - Rs 100. Night visit is recommended and it is worth every buck extra that you pay. The sound and light show is also worth attending if you are the armchair traveller. For the intrepid, incorrigible, wanderlust sufferers, I would recommend the stories narrated first hand by the eloquent stone walls which have witnessed the flow of time. The light and shadows and their interplay is unbelievable. Cap your visit with a regal repast... dinner at the on site restaurant justifiably and befittingly called 1135 AD. Its slightly upmarket in its prices but the quality of the food and authenticity of the preparation is worth it. Enjoy your tryst with history.

  • An awesome fort. More access should be granted for public. Information regarding different places in the fort, their significance and their scientific excellence should be well explained through some means. Audio guide navigation should be improved. Plastic should be completely banned. And I guess electric vehicles can be used instead of elephants or jeeps.

  • Great remnants of the past. Prepare to spend 2-3 hours. Afternoon is more comfortable. You will find several guides in the area who give good info but try to bamboozle you into buying from certain shops.
