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.

  • We liked this place a lot... Preserves old monuments is precious... Good please maintain the same. Take guide n see all places in this palace .. Different palace depends on climatic conditions, if its summer then King n Queen will be in different palace and if its winter they will stay in mirror palace. best is go with guide they will take to all place and will explain about the palace very nicely and you can come to know many historical stuff about this place and PALACE. Can see big vessels for cooking too... Still they preserve those stuff.
  • This is place is simply great located on the top of a hill in the city of Jaipur. This was the home of King/Queen and family before they moved to City Palace located in the middle of the city of Jaipur. A very beautiful Palace with wonderful Architecture. This is quite a famous place in Jaipur and one of the must visit while here. It is quite easy to reach here from any where in the city, you might need too hire a taxi/auto-rickshaw to reach here. The scenic beauty is Superb here.There are beautiful gardens, courtyards and what not inside this magnificent palace. Loved it
  • The fort and the palace are awesome. The view from the fort is simply superb. You will be amazed at the ancient engineering technology and effort involved in building them. But I found that different guides tell different versions of historical accounts just to impress you, which are contradictory and unbelievable. You might enjoy better if you read up a little before you go there. That might help you to enjoy the tales of the local guides with a smile.

  • आमेर दुर्ग (जिसे आमेर का किला या आंबेर का किला नाम से भी जाना जाता है) भारत के राजस्थान राज्य की राजधानी जयपुर के आमेर क्षेत्र में एक ऊंची पहाड़ी पर स्थित एक पर्वतीय दुर्ग है। यह जयपुर नगर का प्रधान पर्यटक आकर्षण है। आमेर का कस्बा मूल रूप से स्थानीय मीणाओं द्वारा बसाया गया था, जिस पर कालांतर में कछवाहा राजपूत मान सिंह प्रथम ने राज किया व इस दुर्ग का निर्माण करवाया। यह दुर्ग व महल अपने कलात्मक विशुद्ध हिन्दू वास्तु शैली के घटकों के लिये भी जाना जाता है। दुर्ग की विशाल प्राचीरों, द्वारों की शृंखलाओं एवं पत्थर के बने रास्तों से भरा ये दुर्ग पहाड़ी के ठीक नीचे बने मावठा सरोवर को देखता हुआ प्रतीत होता है। लाल बलुआ पत्थर एवं संगमर्मर से निर्मित यह आकर्षक एवं भव्य दुर्ग पहाड़ी के चार स्तरों पर बना हुआ है, जिसमें से प्रत्येक में विशाल प्रांगण हैं। इसमें दीवान-ए-आम अर्थात जन साधारण का प्रांगण, दीवान-ए-खास अर्थात विशिष्ट प्रांगण, शीश महल या जय मन्दिर एवं सुख निवास आदि भाग हैं। सुख निवास भाग में जल धाराओं से कृत्रिम रूप से बना शीतल वातावरण यहां की भीषण ग्रीष्म-ऋतु में अत्यानन्ददायक होता था। यह महल कछवाहा राजपूत महाराजाओं एवं उनके परिवारों का निवास स्थान हुआ करता था। दुर्ग के भीतर महल के मुख्य प्रवेश द्वार के निकट ही इनकी आराध्या चैतन्य पंथ की देवी शिला को समर्पित एक मन्दिर बना है। आमेर एवं जयगढ़ दुर्ग अरावली पर्वतमाला के एक पर्वत के ऊपर ही बने हुए हैं व एक गुप्त पहाड़ी सुरंग के मार्ग से जुड़े हुए हैं। फ्नोम पेन्ह, कम्बोडिया में वर्ष २०१३ में आयोजित हुए विश्व धरोहर समिति के ३७वें सत्र में राजस्थान के पांच अन्य दर्गों सहित आमेर दुर्ग को राजस्थान के पर्वतीय दुर्गों के भाग के रूप में युनेस्को विश्व धरोहर स्थल घोषित किया गया है।
