About Amber Fort

Amber Fort or Amer Fort is a magnificent fort in pale red sandstone & marble in the town of Amer, 11 kms from Jaipur. It was once the residence of the state’s Rajput rulers. Photos of the Amer Fort do not compare to the real life experience of standing at the footsteps of the fort. Moreover, tourists admire the sight of the elephants majestically ride up the ramparts.

If you are a tourist, we recommend you to enjoy an elephant ride here. The Amber Fort has a mandir, the public rooms and the private rooms of the erstwhile maharajahs. One of the most exquisite parts of the fort is the Diwan-e-Khas or the hall meant for private audience. It’s also called Sheesh Mahal or the hall of mirrors as its walls are covered in intricate mirror work. It also faces a beautiful garden. Further, there is a moat surrounding the fort.
