Know More about this tour

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel in Jaipurat 8.00 am and stop for a photo shoot at the Hawa Mahal on the way to Amber Fort.

Upon arrival at the Amber Fort, start yourJeepride from the base to Amber Fort entrance. It is located next to the Jaigarh Fort, immediately above on the Cheel ka Teela (Hill of Eagles) of the same Aravalli range of hills. The palace and Jaigarh Fort are considered one complex, as the two are connected by a subterranean passage. This passage was designed to be an escape route in times of war to enable the royal family members and others in the Amer Fort to shift to the more redoubtable Jaigarh Fort. See Kali Temple, also called Shila Devi Temple, famous for its mysterious history and the huge silver lions inside the Amber Fort and also the Jai Mandir, the Hall of Victory, famous for its inlaid panel and dazzling mirror ceiling.

The Zenana or the palace of the women are in the forth courtyard. The rooms connected through a common corridor are cleverly designed to give each room more privacy. When your tour ends, return to your hotel and en-route stop by Jai Mahal for photo shoot.
