The Amer Fort, one of India’s most majestic palaces, is situated in the Pink City of Jaipur at the top of the Aravali Hill. Also known as the amber castle, this magnificent building is a masterpiece of Indian history with its mazelike passages and serpentine staircases. Pink and yellow sandstone was used for the construction of Amer Fort and is part of an immense complex just 11 kilometers from the city of Jaipur. Maharaja Man Singh I was built by one of Akbar’s most trusted generals in 1592, and the Amer Fort acted as Rajput’s main residence.
The Amer Fort overlooks the Lake Maotha in the town of Amer, which used to be the capital of former princely Jaipur state, via its wide ramparts, many gates, and paved paths. The fort is big enough to take at least 2 to 3 hours to explore it in-depth and you can also use audio guides to direct you around this fascinating building and describe its history. The ride to Amber Fort by an elephant is also a famous tourism activity. The Fort has more than 5 000 visitors every day, and the Amer Fort has, as a part of Rajasthans “Hill Forts,” been listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list along with five other forts.
