Amber Fort a.k.a. Amer Fort is a stunning blend of Mughal and Hindu architectural styles set high on the Aravalli Hills overlooking Lake Maota just 4 kilometers from the Pink City of Jaipur. If Spain's Alhambra had been built in India, this is what it would have a been - a symphony of red sandstone and marble with the Indian esthetic for the creature comforts. Picture the winds of Rajasthan blowing gently over the castle's interior's water cascades and you'll get an idea of the ingenious opulence that kept the Raja Alan Singh Chanda cool even under siege.

Hill Forts of Rajasthan, India: These six forts are set among the rocky outcroppings of the Aravalli Mountains in India’s “land of kings” and remain a standing testament to the power that Rajput princes enjoyed from the 8th to 18th century. The defensive walls—up to 12 miles around and incorporating natural defenses such as hills, deserts, and rivers— protected the ornate palaces, temples, and other buildings within.

I love this magnificent palace - ideally, take an elephant ride from the bottom which will take you up. You will get a different perspective when you take photos from on top of an elephant. Go at the right time where it is not too warm and not too crowded and simply explore the place

The fort was splendid. The walls that surround the fort WOW, the size and intricate work of the columns and the artistry is amazing. The shopping area and the snake charmers and the puppet show was great. The merchants were not trust-wordy. The moment they see a tourist they will try and rob you with the pricing. So don't buy. sightseeing is OK shopping ignore.

A beautiful fort overlooking the old capital of Rajputana (Amber), just outside of the Jaipur city limits. There are lots of rooms to explore here (many of which belonged to the women of various rulers' harems. You can walk up the steep hill to the top or take an elephant ride. Don't miss the Kali temple just before the main entrance--the idol here is believed to have been dug up somewhere in what's now Bangladesh after one of the kings had a prophetic dream about it.

The fort is magnificent. The tourist elephant ride in is a huge production line and the hawkers are among the most aggressive we have encountered anywhere. A "no" response is taken as a maybe. Still, once past the gauntlet and into the palace there is plenty of history to absorb.Recommended for:History Buffs

One of the must see places in Jaipur. It does make you feel 'WooW', at first glimpse, while driving up, by its enormity and spread. One thing i liked the most was watching the curves and scenic land scape of Aravali plateau from watch towers and various other points of fort. Though its not like a hill station, still one can see the Jaipur, spread in plains. Also there is a huge museum to explore, but we gave it a miss. Its nice place to get your pictures along with Canons, Huge entrance gates and etc. Pay an entrance fee to get inside main fort rooms and museums, etc.
