Tailormade Your Tour

Past Perfect
Amber Fort inside Scene, Jaipur The imposing structure that is the Amber Fort dominates the skyline of Jaipur. This mammoth walled fortress took over 200 years to build. In 1952 Raja Man Singh I commenced the construction of the Amber Palace which was later completed by Raja Jai Singh and Sawai Jai Singh. Built mainly for the warring enemies as a safe place, the heavily structured walls could defend the residents within the ramparts of the fort. Though the primary aim of this refuge was to protect its residents, not a single stone was left unturned to make it a luxurious haven for the monarchs.

Magic of Architecture
Situated 11 km from the town of Jaipur, the Amber Fort sits in a picturesque setting amidst the rugged Aravali hills. Built atop a ridge and sprawled along the Maotha lake, the fort was once a protection for the city resplendent with its many palaces and temples. Every nook and cranny of this magnificent structure offers bird's eye views of the fascinating landscape. But do not get taken in by its rugged and forbidding exterior because within its mammoth stone walls it contains a beautiful fusion of art and architecture.

Awe inspiring in proportion, the Amber Fort built of red sandstone and white marble is an aesthetic amalgamation of Hindu and Mughal architecture. The palace or the royal apartments that lie inside the massive Amber Fort complex are laden with gateways, gardens, arches, stairways, pillared pavilions, temples and magnificent durbars and halls.

The fort is entered through the 'Dil-e-Aaram' Garden, laid out in the traditional Mughal style. An imposing flight of stairs leads to the 'Diwan-i-Aam' (hall of public audience) which has latticed galleries and double row of columns each having a capital in the shape of elephants on the top. To the right are steps that lead to the small Kali Temple. Maharaja Man Singh was a great devotee of Goddess Kali and prayed to the goddess for victory during battles. The temple has huge doors made of silver. The larger white marble Shila Mata temple, has the image of Goddess Kali, brought by Raja Man Singh from Jessore in East Bengal (now Bangladesh).
