Amer Fort, Jaipur Reviews - Write a Review
I loved this place. There are beautiful architecture, structure and design. I can't express my feeling in the words. Three way, we reached at the entrance. By car, an elephant and staircase. You have to buy a ticket. Palace is very clean and peace. History of palace is very interesting. You hire a guide which have a government licence. Art gallery is also very attractive. Free photography. ATM is available. Food court is also available.
Amazing palace that sits high on a hill. It can take a couple of hours to visit all the rooms with intricate painting and inlay work. Good views of the surrounding wall around the city. Interesting to see the 12 ladies' apartments and the bathrooms. Don't bother with the short elephant ride where you'll be extorted for high tips and relentless sellers.
The palace is massive and beautiful. The intricate art work through out the fort is gorgeous and you feel transported to another era altogether. For a chance to see the place among less crowd, try visiting the palace between 6:30pm - 8:30pm. The palace is beautifully lit (no pun intended) and the 1135AD restaurant is open in the palace. However, you don't get to visit all the sections of the palace which should be viewed during the day time. Visit the palace during noon and wait there till night for a complete experience of the palace.
It's a very beautiful and amazing heritage to see. The whole place is will amaze you. The more you see the more you get interest. This place is kept still alive. the environment there is also very good. If you are planning to visit then it's a great idea. If not then plan soon.
Awesome place to visit. The beautiful fort. Well maintained. A master piece of architecture and glass work. Also got a beautiful temple inside. 50rs tickets are charged for entry inside the fort for Indians. Great view throughout the fort. Well maintained pathways over the hilly region. A beautiful Lake outside the palace
