  • Sheesh mahal is part of Amber fort. This place is a must visit. The fort is huge, grand and oh-so beautiful. It has a unique barren charm and a very rich history that lends this fort and legendary mystical feeling. There is a lake right outside the palace which shines like mirror from the top of the palace. You can see the whole of Jaipur from up there. The light and sound show at night is beyond amazing and must not be missed. The road leading up to the fort is narrow hilly road and there is usually a traffic jam. So, it's advisable to reach there at opening time
  • Beautiful historical heritage ancient building of Mughal age built by King Man Singh in Amber Palace Jaipur.. a beautiful tourist spot must see.
  • Amazing thousand of thousand Tiny mirror...An interior view of a room in Amber Fort covered in thousands of tiny mirrors,,...Sheesh Mahal, the glass palace of Jaipur
  • Quite a miracle like roof fitted with large number of symmetrically pasted glass pieces. Beautiful.
  • Small attractive place, yet beautiful. Charges are around Rs. 500 which is combo pack of this place with wax museum. Must visit if you can afford the price. Photography is not at all allowed here.

Where to stay in Jaipur

With a big selection of budget and mid-range hotels, Jaipur serves as an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Many taxi and rickshaw drivers aggressively push their choice of hotels on unwitting tourists--if you refuse their suggestions, they might double the fare. To avoid this inconvenience, book your room ahead and call the hotel to arrange for a pickup--many offer shuttle services to and from the train and bus station.
