Castle Ruin Must See
Perched atop a mountain ridge, Amber Palace impresses visitors with its imposing Hindu architecture of towering ramparts constructed from distinctive red sandstone. Built in 1592, the complex occupies a spot on the World Heritage List, along with several other hill forts in the region. Enter through the Sun Gate, a grand entryway to the fortress' main courtyard. Explore the many different sections within the walls, which include a temple and several halls with intricate ceiling decorations and expansive gardens. Don't miss the Sheesh Mahal section, which boasts a number of ornate carvings and artwork made from glass. From the edge of the ramparts, you can enjoy a sweeping view over the surround valley, lake, and mountains. A visit to Amber Palace represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Jaipur trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • If you are lover of historic architecture, definitely this place is for you. 427 years back Amber palace built. And still it kept well maintained. Thanks for maintaining this wonderful place wonderfully. You will find small designs everywhere you can't even expect. I will suggest you to take a guide who can tell you about each and every corner of Amber Palace. Loved it!
  • Wonderful. The view is magic, and the palace is like a fairy tale. The fort is huge, then take time. Everywhere you will see beautiful paintings, or mirrors. It's exactly the Indian architecture we dream. After the visit, you can sit and drink something in a peaceful cafe in the palace, or stop in one of the little stores. The places surrounding the fort are less crowded, and with a great historic value too. Don't listen to people in bike waiting for tourists, you can go in car through the little streets, and park just in front of the fort.
