  • 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. In the evening there are Light and Sound shows that showcase the history in a dramatic colorful lights on the walls of this Palace, must watch that. Enjoy !!!!!

  • What a photogenic location. Takes an entire day to take in the elaborate grandeur of the fort. Still in excellent condition, the fort is accessible via jeep or elephant ride. Absolute treat for the eyes. Take a good knowledgeable guide with you for complete information about each and every corner of the fort which is strategically built and decorated. Easily one of the best places to visit in Raj.

  • Great place with historical significance. Accessible through roads and public transportation. The place mostly remains calm on normal days. It covers a large area with lots of cool scenic views. You have to climb the fort, There are some food stalls and a canteen for refueling your body nearby. Amazing experience

  • One of the finest example of Indian architecture in that time.Amber fort is surrounding by the hills and also one of the favourite tourist spot of the foreigners. You can see more foreigners than Indians. Amber is 10 km away from the Jaipur city ,so one can easily reach there. And most important thing is that if you are a student , you get 90% discount on entry tickets. So take your student ID with you. It also help you in Jaipur also.

  • Its a must visit place if you happen to be in Jaipur. Its a very big palace with lots of rooms and corridors. Do hire a guide here for better understanding of the palace. Its one of the main attraction in Jaipur. Hire a bike and you can save money by not using rickshaw. Buy a composite ticket to save your money again as composite ticket costs ₹300/- per person and allows you to visit 5places in just one ticket. Amber palace provides use of elephant to reach the entrance but for a price. Do experience that as well.
