Amer Fort - Review

Located a short distance from the Pink City, Amer Fort is a regal structure built on the top of a hill by Raja Man Singh I of Jaipur. The fort is an absolute must-visit on your trip to Jaipur. Amer Fort tickets are available on the spot but it is recommended you buy tickets for Amer Fort in advance. This can be done through our ticket section, where you can also look through Amer Fort tickets for various tour options.

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.

  • We liked this place a lot... Preserves old monuments is precious... Good please maintain the same. Take guide n see all places in this palace .. Different palace depends on climatic conditions, if its summer then King n Queen will be in different palace and if its winter they will stay in mirror palace. best is go with guide they will take to all place and will explain about the palace very nicely and you can come to know many historical stuff about this place and PALACE. Can see big vessels for cooking too... Still they preserve those stuff.

  • This is place is simply great located on the top of a hill in the city of Jaipur. This was the home of King/Queen and family before they moved to City Palace located in the middle of the city of Jaipur. A very beautiful Palace with wonderful Architecture. This is quite a famous place in Jaipur and one of the must visit while here. It is quite easy to reach here from any where in the city, you might need too hire a taxi/auto-rickshaw to reach here. The scenic beauty is Superb here.There are beautiful gardens, courtyards and what not inside this magnificent palace. Loved it

  • The fort and the palace are awesome. The view from the fort is simply superb. You will be amazed at the ancient engineering technology and effort involved in building them. But I found that different guides tell different versions of historical accounts just to impress you, which are contradictory and unbelievable. You might enjoy better if you read up a little before you go there. That might help you to enjoy the tales of the local guides with a smile.

  • Beautiful palace. It really is like a maze though and it's very easy to get lost or not know what you are looking at or where you are. We decided to wing it without a tour guide or audio tour, and I do have to say that I regret that a little bit. There are only a limited amount of plaques around that give information about the palace, so a tour would have been more informative. The palace is gorgeous and really takes you back to a different time!
