Castle Ruin Must See
Perched atop a mountain ridge, Amber Palace impresses visitors with its imposing Hindu architecture of towering ramparts constructed from distinctive red sandstone. Built in 1592, the complex occupies a spot on the World Heritage List, along with several other hill forts in the region. Enter through the Sun Gate, a grand entryway to the fortress' main courtyard. Explore the many different sections within the walls, which include a temple and several halls with intricate ceiling decorations and expansive gardens. Don't miss the Sheesh Mahal section, which boasts a number of ornate carvings and artwork made from glass. From the edge of the ramparts, you can enjoy a sweeping view over the surround valley, lake, and mountains. A visit to Amber Palace represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Jaipur trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • You climb to the top of this fort on elephant back (beautiful experience). The fort is great and full of courtyards. There are beautifully decorated rooms, they leave you breathless!!!

  • We visited Fort Amber in the afternoon, a must when staying in Jaipur. It was hot, of course, but the fort was almost deserted. Beautiful discovery in the company of our guide. On the road you can make a stop to observe the palace built on the lake

  • A historical destination in Jaipur. Beautifully designed and architect. A must visiting site with family and friends.Great monument of the ancient Indian architecture. The fun part of the visiting of the Amber palace is elephant ride from the parking place to the palace. The palace itself is better to visit with the guide. So, you can enjoy not only the views but also have a chance to find out some interesting facts.
