Amber Palace, Amer

4.7
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.

  • A beautiful palace set inside a fort. There are optional elephant rides to the entrance (vs vehicle). The grounds are large so even with a lot of tourists it does not seem too crowded.  more »

  • 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.

  • Most amazing palace. The view from palace is breathtaking. Since it covers large area, it's quite tough to be with child. Apart from this, fort is very clean. You can enjoy elephant/ camel ride from front entrance or else you can take your vehicle right at the entrance from back side. Music and light show is also very nice. The palace looks dazzling at night with all lights on.

  • This is a historically rich site. The architecture represents the medieval perspective frozen in time. A must visit if you are in Jaipur. If this place is awesome during the day you it's surreal at night. This is open at night and the tickets are four times the cost for daytime visits (daytime charges for Indians-Rs 25, night - Rs 100. Night visit is recommended and it is worth every buck extra that you pay. The sound and light show is also worth attending if you are the armchair traveller. For the intrepid, incorrigible, wanderlust sufferers, I would recommend the stories narrated first hand by the eloquent stone walls which have witnessed the flow of time. The light and shadows and their interplay is unbelievable. Cap your visit with a regal repast... dinner at the on site restaurant justifiably and befittingly called 1135 AD. Its slightly upmarket in its prices but the quality of the food and authenticity of the preparation is worth it. Enjoy your tryst with history....
