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. Amber Palace is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • The fort is awesome. It is huge. It can be scaled by foot, by elephant or by jeep. The sheesh mahal is worth the visit

  • The most beautiful place I have seen in Rajasthan. The architecture and aesthetics are brilliant. Being there gives you a feel of being part of India’s history especially if you hire a guide to walk you through every detail of this huge fort. You are able witness the single palace where so many movies have been shot. The light and sound show at night was the best part! 🎥
  • Mind blown. Wow. The architecture and ingenuity. Early AC and water catchment. Advanced design. Attention to detail. CRAFTSMANSHIP!!! Could spend days exploring. A must visit in Jaipur. Palace added to palace added to palace. 11 km of guard wall and 7 man made lakes to boot. The history! Pro Tips: hire a guide, ride an elephant, don’t buy anything until leaving. Please like my review if it was helpful.
