Amber Fort

Amber FortLocation : On Delhi - Jaipur Highway
Built in : 1592
Highlights : Wonderful carvings and minute mirror work
Perfect Time to Visit : October to March

Amber fort is situated in the picturesque land of Amber (Jaipur). In 1592, the construction of this fort was started by Raja Man Singh I, but its current form was completed during the reign of Raja Jai Singh. With a rugged exterior, the interiors of this fort are simply alluring, with a fascinating blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture. The interior wall of this fort depicts expressive painting scenes with carvings, precious stones and mirror settings. Almost 7 centuries back, this fort had all the means of survival and luxuries for the royal families and the people who were concerned with the functioning of this small kingdom of the Kachhawas. The Rajputs later on renovated it into the grand Amber Fort. Although many of the early structures have been literally ruined but at the same time, those dating from the 16th century on are remarkably preserved by sincere efforts.
