A Time Travel to Amber Fort in Rajasthan

Amber Fort, also known as Amer Palace is one of the most popular forts of Rajasthan. It is about 11 kilometers from Jaipur. Amer used to be the state’s citadel before it was shifted to Jaipur.

Built in 1592 AD, as initiated by Raja Man Singh and took two centuries and three consequent kings for the completion.It was under Maharaja Sawai Singh II’s ruling that it eventually was expanded and renovated. The Amer Fort has witnessed history and defended the residents of the kingdom from invasion of enemies, and stood against the test of time. Luckily, it is still around to show us the culture, grandiosity and importance of it during its time.

The picturesque fort located in the hills, was made of red sand stone and white marble. The stark appearance of the exterior disguises the hidden aesthetic display of Mughal art and architecture inside. The impressively intricate carvings and expressive paintings as well as the display of precious stones and mirrors line its interior. The palace has many halls and pavilions that can be explored. And with the foreground charm of the Maota Lake, a visit to this legendary palace will surely leave every guest in awe with the spectacular vista.
