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.

  • Amber palace in Amer Fort, Jaipur is one of the main attractions in the city. It shows heritage site of Indian past grandeur with their architectural marvels. It seems like your walking in a time-warp while in here and imagining the lifestyle and culture of the people that once lived here. The place is also quiet, peaceful, safe, not crowded and generally not expensive. You can meet extremely friendly local people here and they will help and guide you around the city. The weather here is kinda hot so you must wear sunblock during the day. Opposite in this palace across the road, you will see the huge and long walls around Jaipur that resembles the Great Wall of China. Going and walking around the wall walkway is free and the view is breathtaking! I recommend everyone to visit this place because it's completely different from the rest of India and the world.
  • This is place is simply great located on the top of a hill in the city of Jaipur. This was the home of King/Queen and family before they moved to City Palace located in the middle of the city of Jaipur. A very beautiful Palace with wonderful Architecture. This is quite a famous place in Jaipur and one of the must visit while here. It is quite easy to reach here from any where in the city, you might need too hire a taxi/auto-rickshaw to reach here. The scenic beauty is Superb here.There are beautiful gardens, courtyards and what not inside this magnificent palace. In the evening there are Light and Sound shows that showcase the history in a dramatic colorful lights on the walls of this Palace, must watch that. Enjoy !!!!!
  • Here you could feel the royalty of Indian Rulers. The engineering or architecture of the palace is great and shows the knowledge of science years ago. You will be amazed by each and every aspect by the details of palace. One must take a good guide to help for the tour otherwise you may miss the story of this palace. Well had a very nice time there. Felt touched for the richness of our heritage.
