Elephant Safari in Amber Fort

The Amer fort of Jaipur is also referred to as Amber, a name which matches its golden-brown colour. This stunning fort built of white marble and red sandstone sits atop a hill with the blue waters of the Maota Lake framing its reflection. Located at a distance of 11 kilometres from Jaipur and it was once the old fort of the Kachhwaha clan and was once the capital of their kingdom, which was later moved to Jaipur. The imposing exteriors of the fort belie its ornate interiors, which are influenced by both Hindu and Muslim style of ornamentation. The outside is very imposing and rugged looking whereas the inside is richly decorated with paintings on the the walls depicting various hunting scenes, intricate carvings, mosaic and minute mirror work that make the halls look majestic and imperial.

Elephant Safari In Amer Fort The fort has 4 sections, each within the premises and one has to climb up through the imposing stairway or else the broad aisle, where one can ride up on elephant back for a royal feel. In fact in the olden days when the Elephant was the royal carrier, the dignitaries and other guests of the royalty always rode up the winding path to the fort on Elephant back. The same experience has been recreated for tourists.

The pachyderms are painted in beautiful colours of shocking pinks, blues and yellows, their heads are decorated with vibrant designs and heavy silver jewellery, they are richly draped with colourful cloths and howdhas with comfortable cushions and canopies harnessed on to their backs. The female elephants sport anklets with silver bells. Decked up in regal style the Elephants wait with their handlers for passengers at the foot of the climb. Here charming little platforms have been especially constructed to enable you to mount the elephant with ease. Each elephant carries four people and the handler who maneuvers the elephant's climb up the steep zig-zag path. As you ascend the slope you can look down and see a steep drop of a sheer few hundred feet, one of the advantages of being atop an elephant is the magnificent views that this journey offers, the dips and curves of the surrounding hills and valleys of the Aravali range, the clear and still waters of the Maota Lake and the sheer size and magnitude of the fort up above. The elephant sways past shops with brightly coloured scarves and carpets hung down the walls as a display, you could almost reach out and touch them. The mahout skillfully manages to bring elephant to a stop at the entrance to the fort where the journey ends. It truly is a thrilling experience.
