about amber fort

Amber Fort is a fort-palace complex built in the hybrid Hindu-Muslim style dating back to the 17th Century. This magnificent structure was built by Raja Man Singh I and still retains all its stately grandeur. Overlooking the Maota Lake, this attraction is situated on the outskirts of the city and is known for its imposing gateways and cobbled pathways.  

The Diwan-e-Aam situated inside the Amer Fort built with  red sandstone and marble  is a beautiful example of architecture, nothing short of poetry in stone. Sheesh Mahal in the same complex is another aesthetic treat, especially when it sends away darting rays of sunlight reflected by the thousands of glasses. The most interesting aspect of this complex is the Sukh Niwas, where an air conditioning effect was created in the ancient times with air blowing through cascading cool water. 

Through the 11th to the 16th century, Amber was ruled by the Kachhwahas, until the capital was moved to Jaipur. Raja Man Singh constructed this fort in 1592 AD and was later expanded and renovated.

Amazing Historic Place

Its an amazing place especially in rains and winters. One shouldn't go there in blazing heat. In winters it is like a hill station. Do take a camera with you to capture awesome moments. Do not miss the sound and light show which starts at 7pm.
