  • This spectacular building is ornamented with a mosaic of bright mirrors and Belgian glass embedded along the walls and ceiling. The intention is that the ceiling looked like a starry sky.

  • Very Beautiful and True inspiration to today architecture. You will go back to times before independence. Your visit will be historical and memories will be cherished for life time. You feel blessed to see the Mahal and know the history. Well maintained platforms and photos you take here looks very beautiful after your visit @ your native.
  • Sheesh Mahal, also known as the Palace of Mirrors is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Jaipur. The beauty of this palace lies in the fact that even if a petite ray of light enters it, it naturally lights up the whole palace while reflecting in all the other mirrors. Forming unbelievably magnificent patters, thousands of tiny mirrors planted on the walls, lend this place a splendid touch. To enjoy the splendour of the mahal you must take a guide along

  • Lovely place with lot of mirror work. With torch pointing on mirrors, you can notice sky with stars and other planets. This is great piece of architect. View from fort is breathtaking. Do take a guide to understand history and richness of anicent Indian. My one of the favorite region in India. People are amazing, soft spoken, polite and respectful.
  • Incredibly beautiful place. Must see when you visit Amber Fort. You can take wonderful pictures of the walls and ceilings covered with tiny mirrors and semi precious stones
